Heiji got back to me one time out of a few emails. It went to junk. He told me what he could do for me knife wise. I wrote him back saying that I was good with that and asked how we proceed. Never heard from him again. That was months ago. Wrote him one more time about 3 weeks later. Nothing. Gave up lol.

Maybe he learned his communication skills from Marko T...

What do you usually start your cleanup on? My preference is a SG 120 or 80 grit sandpaper. Don’t have a belt grinder, sadly.
Naniwa SS 220. I like to hold it sideways and use the corners.

My nakiri from Kawamura-san arrived from Japan. Got it new for 98 USD. Shirogami-stainless 160 grams. 165mm by 51mm. Feels like a hefty knife not a laser for sure, but from the reputation it should perform very well. Out of the box edge is nothing special but who cares. Handle has a plastic ferrule maybe at some point I will rehandle.

Does anybody know what the large kanji on the box reads?

Now my Kurosaki has a friend. Something tells me that this is not the end of my collection...

Ok, this is technically not new since I already posted the knife, but enough work was done to warrant a “new” knife post I think. Back from the loving hands of @preizzo who thinned it and gave it an awesome Uchi finish. I knew it would be a bit of a project knife and man did Preizzo bring that project home. Many, many thanks for the generous help!
