That was the Ebay one? Obviously found its rightful loving owner who gave it the TLC it needed. Nice job.
Yes funny story behind it. I set a alert on my phone when the auction had 5 minutes left. At that time I was in hr with one of my cooks we were letting him go for attendance. My alert went off and I was fumbling with my phone trying to pull up the auction while firing someone finally get it up and there’s 9 seconds left. Fired a shot at it without deliberating and of course won. When I received it today it was gut wrenching to see how bad off it was but it cleaned up beautiful and I had a great time with it so it’s a win. Thanks

Yu Kurosaki Raijin 240 from knives and Stones with nice saya. Height 51mm, edge lenght 239-240, 179g. I like to have one stainless in the kitchen(I have Sakai Yusuke ss laser that I dont use that much).

I have use Raijin maybe 8-10 times. I like it a lot, just enough weight to give some feedback/feeling in hand. I think it is a good allrounder in the lighter and laserish(not maybe in the true definition of a laser) compartment. I havent notice nothing in the edge retention park at homekitchen, so I could imagine you don't need to think sharpening for months.

I was contemplating ordering the exact same one, so please let us know ;)

It took a good long while, but I’ve finally managed to thin out the Shibazi cleaver, and do something about the grind. It took getting a 220 grit Shapton and a couple of hours of work...

It’s now screaming sharp (which my finger can attest to, it hurt only after trailing the edge for quite some length... :confused:), but I highly doubt it will have been worth the work. I would probably have gotten a CCK if I were you, which as far as I can gather should be much thinner OOTB.

“Having” to add 220 stone to the collection was a bonus though.

Before and after shots ;)

Post brought me the small tube of simichrome today and tested slighty on 270mm edge.It seems a brilliant stuff. I wonder will it scratch badly if mirror polished blade.

IsoJ With all these great looking knives I think you have to start a thread under the gallery section (knife collection or whatever it’s called). [emoji122][emoji1303]
I was afraid somebody might say that :). I am by far the lousiest collector but then again quite good at impulse buying :D

Kochi migaki wa-gyuto 240.

This is propably the best bang for bucks for me so far. Just after a few onions,tomatoes and potatoes..it just goes thru and feels good in the hand, I like the handle much more than the D-shape style. Cladding seems to be quite reactive. Heel height didn't bother me at all, which was a nice suprise.

First expressions, why didn't I buy the KU version too when it was in stock :D and the 270 :D.
