    Haha no I mean how do you like it? Im buying a Tanaka as a gift for someone and I like the looks of the ebony/brass a lot more than the ebony/horn handles, so I was wondering how they fair.

    Ah yeah that makes sense. It's too clean to be a Tanaka. :p I really like Kato/Kanehiro knives.

    My first ever custom, from Isasmedjan :)

    I'm looking very much forward to testing this beast, approximately 200mm, heel height 50mm

    Wood for handle is mystery wood I inherited. Very flagrant and no one in Denmark has been able to identify it as of yet. The nordic runes say "Munin" one of Odins ravens. Munin roughly translates to "Memory" from old Nordic, I felt it appropriate due to the origins of the wood.

    Jonas was a pleasure to work with, he is extremely service minded and I learned a lot on how to specify my needs and wants :=)

    I love it! Definitely really heavy but the Tanaka has a good weight to it that balances it all out. Feels nice and smooth and it looks great

    Nothing special, just a carbon heiji. I reminded him that I’m a lefty and he didn’t disappoint. Such a thin edge! 3BCF1536-00F9-42A0-B946-69909EEC2A41.jpeg 3B6276C0-9773-44B6-BE49-5572F190F136.jpeg 72AA8861-8B2D-4A24-85B7-E20C0CEF1005.jpeg

    Lol, no. They cut entirely different.
    The deal w Toyama is I just over spent on knives in a short period of time. The Toyama was an easy sell, and I offered to rebuy it from the purchaser if he’s not too into it.

    I sent heiji an email about a 250 mm semi stainless with a height around 54 mm and a higher shinogi line but obviously I would leave it up to him where he thinks it should be. I gave him an idea of where I would like it and it sounded like he has gotten complaints from people who asked him to make knives like this that the knife becomes weak and bends lol. So he said it would have to be a 50 mm height. So I said if it can be 250/54 with a little bit thinner of a grind than normal I’m good with that. I put it in his hands. Never heard back from him haha. Probably just busy. Would love one in the future. That looks great man!

    This one is probably similar. It honestly doesn’t bother me at all that Heiji KU often comes with very little taper.

    It’s funny you mention it, there was a miscommunication somehow in our emails...when 6 monthes arrived I asked him if my knife was close and he responded that it was never made. He apologized and told me he would have it made ASAP. I think he cranked this one out for me in 5 weeks.
