Hi where do you bought 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...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.
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.

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.
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.Uhm, asking the same question once is enough, I guess...
I have been using my kochi migaki 270 at work consistently since I bought it. It’s a less expensive knife that I don’t have to really worry about but it still blows anything anyway. Absolutely love it.Just received the Kochi 270 today from Jon, Excellent experience so far
OMG, is this your third one? I can’t decide which one I like more - the warp one or this one. This is insane!
he let go of this?? Hmmm
Idon’t know why Saji is mentioned more on this forum - they are beautiful and great performers
