2 knives arrived today and I didn’t have anytime to take a good pics because of work but here’s one of them. Kagekiyo Mirror Ginsan Damascus 240mm with Urushi handle. Myojin grind always got me feeling some type of way. 😊👍🏼🔪

I saw that one at miura...tempted me but was hard to justify that much money for ginsan. Looks gorgeous though, let us know how it performs

Well I couldn’t resist at all 😂 because Ginsan is my favorite stainless steel and I currently own couple of Nakagawa x Myojin knives and there’s really something with this duo. I believe there’s only 3 of this knife currently floating around and they all landed at Miura. I even just started using my other Kagekiyo Ginsan and that thing puts a stupid smile on my face when im cutting up produce.

I was all set to do a countdown + alarm for @Will Newham latest newsletter, as I’ve been lusting after his cumai s-grind since he did one a couple months back, plus @Brian Weekley raving about Will got me all amped up. Thought it was going to be tomorrow evening but saw his newsletter pop up in my email this morning. I assumed it was a preview at first, then did a double-take when I realized it was actually live!

So I almost feel like I was cheating, but you snooze you lose suckas! I’m only sorry I debated too long about the matching petty, but thank you to whoever stopped me from crossing over (by a tiny smidgen) into 4-figure territory. Anyway, thrilled to have this guy headed my way.

Steel: Takefu Vtoku2 core stainless and copper cladding
Tested Hardness: 64 HRC
Length of cutting edge: 233x56
Spine thickness -
Above heel: 3.1mm
Midway: 2.1mm
10mm before tip: 0.4mm
Weight: 227g

I can’t imagine being disappointed in Will’s work. From the outset his attention to detail and f&f has been above the clouds. As time passes Will just keeps expanding his horizons with techniques, steels and finishes. Were he not just a few days late for registration I know Will would have cleaned house at the 2023 DCI. Have a look at his serrated blades … I mean, who takes the time to do that? Will has another custom in the works for me. Another one of his limited production Heirloom series … multi piece this time. Stay tuned.

Had a Tsubaya branded Y Tanaka in aogami 1 as my first real Japanese knife, it was a bit short at the heel for me, so I sold it, and have really missed that steel ever since. I was lucky enough to work out a deal to purchase this migoto branded Y Tanaka wide bevel in aogami 1 with a taller heel and I am so stoked. This steel really is something else and I am so happy to have it back in my knife roll.

Finally had time to work on this knife and rehandle it. Hatsukokoro Yoake Blue 1 240mm Kiritsuke with Custom Buckeye burl handle. Wasn’t going to install the handle today but I wanted to play with it at work today. 😊👍🏼🔪View attachment 210784 View attachment 210785 View attachment 210786 View attachment 210787 View attachment 210788

I dont know if it's the same with the gyuto but the kiritsuke tapers down thin and it's also thin behind the edge. So I think that people misinterpret this knife as a workhorse because of the thickness on the tang or the spine but it does taper down.
