That Cleaver is nice!
I am insanely jealous of that slicer.
You have good taste in knives
Did you burn the ho-wood yourself?I have had a few come in over the last couple months that I haven't had the chance to post. The first was a 240mm Toyama. I asked Maksim if I could have the heavier ones he had in stock and I am very happy with its performance. Smooth cutting feel but still releases very well. Surprisingly well in fact, gave me one of those moments where you chuckle to yourself while using it when I was chopping up some potatoes. Handle is burnt ho wood with buffalo horn. Feels very nice and grippy in hand. My first burnt wood handle and I like it a lot.
Height at heel: 55mm
Spine thickness at heel: ≈4mm

Make sure to send a thank you card.When I got my Kaeru honyaki in the mail, my wife was so worked up over the potent cigarette smell (she thought the appliance repair guy had smoked in our apartment - it was that bad) that she forgot to be irritated that I bought another new knife and ask how much it cost
Genius, you may have cracked the code. Now when you get new knives just plant a cigarette somewhere and cone up with a creative story or just get all knives from maximWhen I got my Kaeru honyaki in the mail, my wife was so worked up over the potent cigarette smell (she thought the appliance repair guy had smoked in our apartment - it was that bad) that she forgot to be irritated that I bought another new knife and ask how much it cost
Isn’t it just? I am impressed by the glorious overkill of putting an s-grind on a suji, a willowy type of blade already well suited to reducing sticktion. Envious - and could certainly be a heavyweight contender in your sticky potato testsOh my … now that is sweeeeeeet!
Just when you thought you were outOK... fell back into buying knives again.. a couple of deals from the forums that haven't arrived yet.. but a parcel came from JNS today:
