It sure did! [emoji268]
You always have had, do have and will have the absolute very best stuff. Hats off sir.
I believe the last batch from CC had Keyaki wood handles. Yours looks the same.
I really like this. I wonder if the blade road is all flat or if there's some low spots around (my 210mm KU nashiji has a very well-finished blade road, much to my surprise)
Haha! Thanks for the kinds words, Khash! But we all know who that honor goes to, my friend!
Ha Ha! 2 guys with stuff! Wonder Twins!
Your “stuff” aint too shabby either! Haha
Oh god damn it, Balut!
I’ll see if I can’t find some time to lay a ruler on it, to try and see how well it’s ground. It looks nice and flat, but I’d guess it’s hard to say without a straight reference.
Early christmas present .
Kippington workpony 242*55,2, 254gr. Photos dont do any justice. I like the g10 ferrule.
That is beautiful! That may be what I need to start saving up my money for...
How do you like it compared to the laser? Jules' work is awesome!
I’m curious too. I have a fishhook and a lesser of his and was thinking about a work horses, one of the best makers out there IMO!
New to the hobby but loving it so far!
From left to right:
1. Tojiro DP 270mm gyuto
2. Shigefusa Kitaeji 210 mm gyuto
3. Watanabe 250 mm mizu-honyaki gyuto
Starting off with a bang
Seems like the normal progression. Tojiro>Shigefusa kitaeji
Makes sense to me. 270mm’s are more expensive, so if your knives get progressively less fancy as they get longer then they’ll all be around the same price. That’s how it works above, right? Right? ...
Shigehiro arrived. Shown with Marko Honyaki.
Haven’t cut with it yet but the grind is right on this one. Nice finish and kanji too. Beefy handle with nice blonde ferrule. Winner.
Great knife. Now it’s time for one of us to get the suji.
The fit and finish is brilliant on both of these. Workpony cutting edge has a bit more curve than the "workpony laser". I will cut with it after the holidays.
The laser profile was a bit strange for me at start but just after a few meal prep it became my "top3". I've used it maybe a 15-20 times for family meal prep and I havent noticed hardly any edge dulling, bites thru tomatoes stil like nothing.
So a heavyly thumbs up for Kippingtons work from me. The F&F and cutting performance for the pricetag is hard to beat.
I love that all blonde handle @Chuckles
That Shigehiro looks so good.
the only shige i want, haha.
@panda - My guess is you would love the grind but wish it was 10mm longer and 5mm taller. Like you’re Mizuno KS after three tip repairs and three or four years of hard use with responsible sharpening.
i plan on getting the 270 eventually and the suji
Shigehiro 180 petty I picked up in a trade. Finally got to give it try, great little knife!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays ya'll
Now what’s that?! [emoji268][emoji848][emoji16]
