That LaSeur looks really good, how does it cut?
It cuts really well. I've used it at work for the last 3 days and have no complaints. The taper on it is really nice, the front half is great for shallots and more delicate prep and the back half can push thru everything I've thrown at it so far.
 
Hello, my name is Gabriel and I am an addict... A couple of these may be coming to a BST near you in the not too distant future (the reddish handled Eddworks, Spåre, Huber and Bidinger are a hard no, but 1 of 3 un-pictured Simon Maillet may go as well).

1. Newham 250mm x 57mm yushoku
2. Lucas Baldwin 255 x 62.5mm magnacut
3. Bidinger symmetrical b-grind (oh to have a lefty one!) 250mm x 57mm 52100

Mine also arrived yesterday, and whilst I can’t compete with that photography I can provide some comparison shots against my Seiryu.

My 240 WH comes in at 309g, with the 240 Seiryu at 307g.

Didn’t think it was possible to make a Seiryu look a bit skinny by comparison, but here we are.

Yours are both 240mm I assume?
 
Handling the 210 makes me want to add a 240 to the stable, and makes me even more curious about the last 210mm versions that weighed in ~300g…

I don’t need multiple versions of the same knife. *repeats in head*

Damn man - You've been busy. I was wondering who snagged that Newham Rainbow knife.

How do you like the Baldwin? Been following him on insta.

Also - Need people to get off the Eddworks train. (Only saying so that his wait times go down and I can get my hands on more of them.).
 
to solve my want of a Chinese cleaver, but also something that will fit into my knife block.

210 Nakiri from Msicard!

Definitely more lasery, stiction was sort of an issue but patina I forced is helping. Just made some apple coleslaw today to compliment some boiled pork belly. Blasted through the cabbage with amazing feel. A kohlrabi and loganma/black vinegar slaw test will need to wait till next year one they are back in season.

it feels like I have more space than a Chinese cleaver for the larger veggies (cabbage from my local farmers market is somehow twice the size of what i expect). because it lets me use a pinch grip, while a cleaver i feel like i'm basically grabbing the knife where i lose like a good inch and a half to my grip.

I don't think this could fill a role for like a 1 knife dinner, knife but definitely a tool in my box for the big veggie slaws. My first 52100. Steel could be harder, but it takes a edge wicked fast on cheap synth stones.

I had a great two week vacation in Japan. During my time there I stopped by Takada no Hamono and Nakagawa Kajiya. I bought a petty from Takada-san and even got him to sign the box. Nakagawa-san doesn't have anything for sale in his shop, but he did direct me to one of his more recent shipments at Jikko. I wish I bought a knife before I visited him, but I still got him to sign a bag before leaving. The petty has already been put to work, but the honyaki will stay in the cupboard to salt up for a while until I get the courage to use it.
