I have one from K&S doe the Honyaki - it does not leave any scratches - has that soft close kind of feel
Cotton pads, camelia oil, white gloves, a special pillow where it can rest - and within time, a part time butler would probably be good.
I just like to use a good ceramic plate for mine. Watch some youtube videos of Ricky he'll show you how to do it.

Finally got some better lighting. Here's the nakiri fam - Heiji 180, Wat Special White 180, Shig 165



I didn't realize how *not short* 165mm is for a nakiri. I guess I'm so used to the 240mm vs 210mm gyuto difference that I thought the Shig would be a nakiri for dwarves.

It's pretty hefty, weighing in at 192g vs 177g for the Wat and 223g for the Heiji.

Here's a bunch of choil shots - Wat, Heiji, Shig



The saya is very, very nice. I wonder if it's a saya from Shig, Hitohira, or Bernal.



And finally, it is a reactive little guy. This is the patina after 1 small onion, 3 tiny carrots, and 6 mushrooms.

That’s a dream bag right there. I really need something smaller than what I have now. Gotta hit your site soon man. I thought the 18 slot ultimate edge bag would be great but I always reach for something smaller that holds 6 or so.

Lots of options now. And lengths. Thanks to @lumo 😂

@Gregmega pardon my ignorance, I'm relatively new here, but could you share some info on that bag? Looks like well thought out well made bag!

This one arrived today
58 mm heel height
240 mm blade length
285 gm

It’s one of the Shinichi specials - W2 iron clad KU with Damascus edge. A first time trial for Shinichi - I am sure he nailed it! I like how he experiments and makes new creations every so often

My first Watanabe Gyuto! Look forward to trying it learning more about why people rave about his knives cutting ability

It will be interesting to compare to my Toyama’s but at first glance and hand-feel, - it’s a completely different knife

pretty knife, but that choil shot looks awful, that's not what his regular pro line looks like. yours is a wide bevel
