    Not a knock on the Marko. Steel was sexy on the stones, handle and saya were on point and the finish on the knife was quite good. Knife is exactly what's advertised as, a very nice workhorse grind. I happen to have an abundance of WH knives, some cut smoother, some less so, some about the same as the Marko but I'm more attached to them for a variety of reasons.
    The Dalman happened to surpass my expectations as a very smooth cutter with above average release, I guess the pleasant surprise of exceeding my personal expectations made me not follow through with the original plan of selling both quickly, instead I'll play with it for a while at least.

    Sorry for OT, @valgard, but if you have planned to sell those knives quickly why did you buy them?

    Am I missing something?

    I like both knives, but would prefer the Dalman, no doubt about that.

    A) I didn't buy them
    B) I still thought it would be cool to try them
    C) Because I could do it.

    Don’t worry everyone the Marko is headed to a good home and I think it’s a great win win for everyone.

    I reached out to @valgard when he had his Mizuno for sale to get funds together but ended up with a trade instead. +1 for the person who was able to trade what they had to acquire the gorgeous mizuno.

    Then to my surprise @valgard reached out to me to see if I really wanted to buy it from him. I’ve had a Marko at the very top of my list. To date it will be by far the nicest and most expensive in my collection. I’ve been messaging Marko on ig about what he’s going to be releasing because somehow I’m always a minute late to get something of his. +1 for even the maker being happy I got my hands on it when I told him.

    @valgard got part of his funds. I got my “unicorn” without giving up a kidney because of demand. I’m a newb so I’m glad someone with his experience got to give it some love on the stones. And this is what I like about KKF.

    Also C!

    I live in Brazil and have a good friend, (@70aocubo) Eduardo, He restores knives, does some polishing with jnats, and also buy some "unfinished" knives direct from Blacksmiths in Japan, just like that Turumaki. He does all the refinement on the blade, installs the handle, and sells.

    I'm not sure with that Tanaka was from his personal collection, or if He bought it direct from him, but I can ask.

    Eduardo (Instagram @70aocubo) bought it from Maksim, but he does all the hard work after that. The knives from Maksim normally have a "bad finish", so Eduardo does all the polishing. I don't the have the stones or the talent to do that. Same thing happens with the Turumaki knife, Turumaki sends the blade with a very poor finish.

    That's how the blade arrives from Turumaki to Eduardo (@70aocubo)

    That looks beautiful. Nicely understated and elegant. What is the knife? I don't recognise it.

    As thin as this is, I expect you'll have to handle it carefully. But I bet that it'll cut like the devil…

    Nice pick up on the Tanaka. Can't believe how thin that is.

    It's a Tanaka Yoshikazu from JNS. I can't wait to test drive it.
    It will cut

    I absolutely love the profile of those Tanakas. Wish Maksim carried 270s.

    Same, except 270 is too big for me (for now at least). I'm super curious how they cut, and kinda wish I hadn't waffled on it so much during his BF sale...

    It is a surprisingly good knife and the profile works well, I didn't expect this.
