Nice, subtle S grind is it? How does it cut?
I haven't used it yet because I'm going to meal prep this weekend and want to slice up some meat first to get a sick patina but If it's anything like my first Halcyon knife I'm sure it'll be amazing cutter.

Custom Togashi full tang western in ironwood, a subtle and elegant expression of pure artistry. Thanks to all the help from @moderncooking for setting this custom up and doing all the heavy lifting. Peter is a joy to work with for anyone looking at getting into some nice pieces, located in Germany.
Also to dispel any myths as to whether it is indeed a full western tang, it unequivocally is.

How does it cut? Can we see some patina shots?

Nothing sexy here for sure but I'm still excited.

*Ingredients have nothing to do with the knife. Wife was gathering up stuff for salad when I slipped in for a pic.


I like breaking down whole chickens and it was time to get a proper tool for the job. I've been back and forth about Western or honesuki for quite a while but using my utility knife as an experiment has me feeling the Western style right now. Yeah, I'm sure there will be a honesuki at some time... 🤪



Look at the burr on that factory edge...lol.
Dick power! 👍🏻

TFTFTF back from a handle / saya and thinning


Custom chukabocho by @teruyasu_fujiwara
Approx. 100mm x 200mm blade, 507g with new ironwood burl handle (previously 456g).

I had the edge geometry tuned up by @forty.knives (now hamaguri), The handle is ironwood burl with brass and G10, and saya is quarter-sawn oak with a touch of the shou sugi ban technique… both are by both by @common_trade

The engravings read:















刀工・・・sword master
四代目・・・4th generations
藤原照康 作・・・made by Fujiwara Teruyasu









タナー・・・Tanner (my name in katakana)
白一鋼・・・white 1 steel (shirogami hagane)

That’s a nice looking yoshikazu ikeda Fuji, look like sharpened by Ino shinpei too 👍👍
Thanks, that’s good to know. I got it in late-2018 but it stayed in USA until recently, just got it back with some other knives in a big shipment.

I dont know why but the F.Dick factory edge is very inconsistent... I have two of them and both came with a defect in the edge at the point. A seller of my town even sharpens the knives he sells of this brand

It's pretty common on all the major high-volume makers. Especially at this price point but I've surely seen it on much costlier offerings as well. Easy enough to clean up. :)

OMG - how did you score this! Congrats - it’s thought enough to get a Honyaki Togashi, but with western full tang is a rare treat.

Who was the sharpener?

yeah, you are right, but I have also Arcos, Icel and Giesser and altough they dont have the "best" factory edge, they are very decent. I think F.Dick has some drunk sharpening robots there 🤣 , because even the seller I met says that in every 6box he finds a badly sharpened knife very often...

telegraph wire is such an interesting thought. never come across that before. seen other cables used, but something about that idea is really clever, charming, ...

congratulations. always love that tidy little maker's mark, too.

Well I finally socked enough away to be able to reward myself with this knife from my friend Tim Wright
