Nkd times two!
IMG_0883.jpg

First a nice working honesuki that i picked up for a sweet price at a new Dutch knife schop, Kanehide bessaku 150mm honesuki

Secondly a yanagi kiritsuke tip from aliexpress that should be vg10 uncladded (doubtful about that). Got the handle and blade from the same vendor, handle is actually really nice with real wood, horn and metal (13 euros). And the blade was pretty ok, it has an ura, is hardened, and no overgrinds. I am still in process of making it really nice visualy but it already is super sharp after a simple progression!

Its not Christmas, but I received this yesterday

Now I can see why people are keen on getting this knife - it is meticulously finished, and is an excellent performer in initial cutting tests

270 mm
53 mm heel height
231 gm
SG2

I also got a really good deal, as the 210 mm is selling for $1,400 online!

Thanks to my knife guru on this forum!

Which one do you like? The little dammy number?

In the late 80's, early 90's I was transfixed by Damascus steel. Nowadays, not so much. But the overall ergonomics and shape of the blade and handle design really spoke to me and I was hoping to learn who made it.

yeah, Id agree, Dammy is not my thing either. all of my other knives are iron clad carbon steels, but he showed me this knife and how thin it is, and how the tip flexes but doesnt snap, and i had to try it out. these handles are sublime too. the soft iron one he did for me is so damn nice as well. im keeping my eyes open for a 230ish version of the iron clad. hes got a 180ish now for sale that id buy if i didnt already have a 180...

I was trying to buy a Sugimoto CM-4030 and in the last 6 months, they are up by ~$70USD. Unfortunately, language barriers and credit card foreign transaction issues mean I missed my little cleaver purchase, and now prices are up along with layoffs so, an expensive cleaver isn't coming my way anytime soon. :(
Hi where do you bought it?
Thanks
Here:

A relative unknown in the forums but, Angel was responsive via email and the price was right. I also saw favorable references on some woodworking forums so, took the plunge and was rewarded for the risk with a 'new' vendor.

DHL Express was a little more spendy than average but, during these days of COVID was well worth the $22. When it hit Japan Customs, it was two days to my door in Texas. Considering the low cost, there is "no padding" of shipping costs so, take that into account when you consider the TOTAL PRICE to your door. ;)

Uhm, asking the same question once is enough, I guess... :D
It looks like he or she is in France so, scanning the forums in a foreign tongue might not be the easiest. Been there done that with passable Dutch, better German and, terribly mangled French in Belgium along with some other derivative French dialects in other parts of Europe.

Living in Texas currently and spending a lot of years in Tucson, I'm still struggling with even the most basic Spanish! :eek:

Anyone with a foreign tongue that participates in a forum like this impresses me! I wish I was so gifted but, alas not in the school system I grew up in ... 😢
