Got my hands on a takeda AS finally, the original owner had it made 10 yrs ago and it only saw home use since. I Sent it over to @eastasiaknifeimports on Instagram and had him do a two tone handle/saya/pin. All Katalox. Knife is 172gs, a hair under 230mm, balance point is at the pinch. This knife is the 💩

Btw what are the dimensions of yours?
Funny you should ask, I was thinking the same and just came from the kitchen -
53mm heel height
246mm heel edge to tip
204 gm

just proves each knife is individually hand made. I thought the Kitaeji would be more beautiful but this knife is quite stunning. Something truly special about it

270 Toyoma SS clad:) doing a compare/contrast with a similar Mazak and selling the loser(I think I already know which one it is)
Can’t wait to hear your perspectives on the two (Mazaki and Toyama).
Toyama❤❤❤❤

let me know what you think of the 270 - that one is not that easy to find - I snapped one up from JNS too.Amazing knife!

Finally got my Mazaki Kuro Nashiji 240. Barely used by previous owner but unfortunately the tip chipped off in transit. Not surprised though because it’s so thin.

The tip is super-thin - good for shallots, but my tip touched the faucet while cleaning, ever so gently, and it got bent. I could straighten it with my fingers. Not surprised that yours broke off during rough travel

i still like the knife though - absolutely solid performer for the price and fun to use- it’s got its own personality and swagger

Been there, I fix it before and I also thin out the front part of the knife.
mine improve a lot after thinning the front part, it's not as wedgie as before.
i have a video on fixing it.
