Roselli Chef Knife (UHC-steel). The factory bevels didn't unleash the whole capability of the steel so I had to fix that. Now the edge is really keen and I'm looking forward to see how good the edge retention of this steel is.

Sukenari HAP40 Ktip
231mm edge length
51mm tall
2.4mm spine most of the way
203.5g

been curious about sukenari & Hap40 for a while and pulled the trigger fm MTC. Call it a Fat laser or thin mid weight. Thinner than expected and not much taper. Feels assertive w a slight curve most of the way. Nice surprise that the core steel patina’d. Has that “all business look” but has some getup when you put through it’s paces. Pleasantly surprised and I’d guess it’d be a great pro knife.

Where did you get this if I may ask? The handle is super nice.

My first time ordering from them. They were very responsive. Shipping takes a while because of Covid but there’s nothing they can do about that.

I saw that on IG and thought about getting it but thought that a laser with a heavy handle defeat the purpose of the blade itself.
Now that I see your pictures I kind of regret not buying it.
The balance point on this version is very close to the standard western handle (right in front of the bolster) if not a few mm forward.

I’ve been buying too many nice knives recently, so I’ve unconsciously paid penance by purchasing this beast of a vintage cleaver from a certain auction site on a cheap whim. 1948 Elwell blade, rusty, weighs a ton - quick research suggests it‘s either a butchers or military (?) cleaver. Or possibly something more specialised for rendering open the legendarily tough skulls of troublesome, yappy Yorkshire terriers..

Not entirely sure why I thought I need another project tbh. It’s clearly going to weigh down another drawer for a fair old while. I blame other KKFers for making this kind of restoration work look misleadingly easy

What was the cause of that long a wait?
to be available locally and the maker and steel that I want also with Ebony handle.

There are other vendors who carry Hakata. But Mutsumi one with AS, Kuro Nashiji finish and Ebony handle is pretty hard. Available locally is a huge bonus as well.
