They say that when life sends you lemons that you should make lemonade. They being the kind of gullible, trite types that tend to have an unhealthy attachment to self-help manuals and motivational posters.

Still, if you happen to be stopping off to water a giant pumpkin on the way back from the local PO depot, and you have a Kono FM white in your possession, then why not use it as a strange photo opportunity on the ‘show us your newest knife’ buy thread? That makes much more sense to me.

🤷‍♂️

Saw those on Instagram - such nice knives. I'd get him to make me something but I keep impulse buying other things.
Get him to make you something! I've recently been loving supporting up and coming makers...

what's the weight on the cleaver?
My scale says 329 grams. I asked for a workhorse, it feels quite solid in the hand...

This cheery yellow and red DHL package from Jonas (Isasmedjan) containing a 180 Bunka couldn’t have arrived at a better time- wife in the shower and oblivious to delivery. As a bonus, found a cool vintage Swedish newspaper as part of the wrapping.

Y. Tanaka Kyuzo 240 stainless clad B1. Saw this one and as hard as I tried, I could not resist. This will be the 3rd knife I bought this year thus far. I think that in its own is fairly impressive for me.

as close as it gets to a Fujiyama stainless clad. Basically what soooo many people have asked over the years but Konosuke never produced.
Great product!!

Interesting....do you know if these are stock removal or forged? He wasn't the blacksmith I assume even though this is his own line correct?

Higo! Cheap but fun. Sharp enough ootb, the blue 2 feels nice on the stones, nice and easy to deburr. Kind of sketchy to open and close but better than waving around a kiridashi for breaking down cardboard.

Hinoura Mutsumi AS. 243 mm*50 mm. 228 gram. Spine thickness is 5.08 mm at handle, 4.0 above the heel, 2.75 in the middle and 1.1 at 1 cm from the tip. Did a quick test cut and it felt good. It feels like a Heiji with a taller bevel and better f&f.
