    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

    Almost bought one just like it and have regretted not going through with it. How does it cut? Have you compared it to the shig nakiri?

    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.

    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).

    I was afraid somebody might say that :). I am by far the lousiest collector but then again quite good at impulse buying :D

    Yep, thus the patina. I just got the full size cleaver last week so it has only been through one meal.

    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.
