Recent purchases, time to take them in to see what’s up.
300 mm Toyama yanagiba (above average Toy f&f, 222 grams and nice height)
240 mm Toyama SS gyuto (I broke down since my iron clad is shrinking)
240 Itsuo Doi (talk about slam pigs 🐷 , 277 grams of yams 🍠)
270 mm Shig kitaeji yanagiba (bought here from @Currantly, silky smooth transaction, feels a little like a fugu :) )View attachment 121944View attachment 121941View attachment 121942View attachment 121943
Is that the ckc doi? I’d be interested to hear your assessment after you use it a little.

Had gotten quite lucky when this was available from an online vendor then I got unlucky when I copped custom duties which costed me 25% of the retail item...

I didn't think I'd ever pull the trigger on an expensive knife like this but there is some sort of allure that made me want to try out a Kiyoshi Kato where I was willing to cop a loss to see what the fuss was all about it but I don't think I will be testing it out anymore..considering how much it has costed me in total :(

@drsmp Looking good in its new neighborhood!
Brian definitely earned some extra knife karma bonus points on this one. I tip my hat to that gentleman

210 wa handle gyuto - after years of deliberation. I mostly blame the wabi sabi thread for pushing me over the edge, and a big wood grain box of wabi sabi is what I got. It now sits at the top.

This thing cuts f***ing incredible!!

@Pie whats up with that funky bunky
sakai Takayuki tall bunka - togashi’s rendition of something like the tinker tank I suppose. Def out of the usual wheelhouse but I like it for the extra extra heft and relative thinness up the bevel. One hell of an ootb edge too.

That denka is just bursting with wabi sabi tho 🤤. Gonna be some time before I gather the nerve to start “fixing” it.

I love the smell of wabi-sabi in the morning.

That stale cigarette smell, ahhhh smells like... victory.

This arrived today after some long delays due to Mis-adventures with postal services. Was nervous that it had been lost in the great postal unknown.

But it’s so purdy out of the box, ahhh, all is well in Mudville now

Just picked up my Mizuno KS style 240mm honyaki gyuto after a custom handle job. It's much more KS style in shape and proportions now. Narrowed the machi a lot and added a lefty choil grind/polish as well as a slight regrind of the kissaki to bring it slightly more narrow. The spine has been rounded. The fit-up for the machi to the handle was trued up better. I can't wait to start using this knife.
