The knife Damascus pattern goes partly well with the white slippers of yours
I thought the Hana was the top of the line?

One of the nicest aspects of KKF is the friends you make along the way. A while back I commented in a post that I had been looking for a Comet to add to my collection. As Trey has taken a break from knife making I wasn’t having much luck. Along came Hassenbensober to my rescue by offering his Comet Honyaki Gyuto. It was perfect as I was looking for a daily user. 238mm blade length, 220mm edge length, 50mm high, 3.65mm thick at the heel. Probably 26C3 carbon steel with a HRC of 63-64. 180gms. Here is a few more pics.

Adding to my luck recently was advice from marc4pt0 to pick up one of the new Anova Precision Ovens. I did and have been using it for the past month or so. I picked up a cheap top round roast on sale this week and thought it would be perfect to roast in my new oven to welcome the Comet Honyaki to the family. Here’s a couple more pics.

Though the pics show that the roast was a bit dry it was in fact perfectly moist. I dry brined the roast for 48 hours, seared the roast in beef fat for 6 minutes, then used the Anova oven for a 22hr sous vide roast at 135F. Amazing! My new Comet made short work of the roast and was easily capable of wonderfully thin slices. Two winners courtesy of two KKF friends.
Ironically I wouldn't know since I haven't used a ZKramer.
Looks very interesting!

Thanks for the link. Will have to read when I've got time.Got the new Kramer Zwilling knife today.:thumbsup: Some of the pics show it with the real Kramer 9" Chef's knife for comparison. I was very pleasantly surprised with the knife. I was prepared to be a little disappointed but not so. The F&F is excellent. The distal taper is comparable to the...www.kitchenknifeforums.com
