The previous post put this thread back on my radar...
Did you get the sujihikis new or used? The bevels on the 240 and 300mm come up high on the tip. The other interesting thing is the length-to-height at the heel. The 240 is the tallest, the 270 is the shortest and the 300 is inbetween! Strange how the ratio is changing... (I am assuming the photo is not a composite with different aspect ratios?).
Zwebsite.. nice one, will remember this one for a long time! Yes, there's indeed a difference, then again, these are handmade knives, right?Thanks @Zweber!
Ahhhh.... The composite sounds like a pretty faithful representation. Your zwebsite is awesome....
Length | Height, Blade at Heel | Length, Handle to Tip
240mm | 38.9mm | 242mm
270mm | 35.8mm | 269mm
300mm | 40.2mm | 323mm
Definitely. The 240 is oddly tall or the 270 is oddly short. I would have assumed heel height has a linear relationship (or at least monotonic) with length. But who am I to judge ? Interesting!
Indeed nice pics.
Looking at all the pics you are posting, are you actually using any of the Shigs you have? I do not see any usage marks on any of them...
Amazing that you keep such detailed statistics! What do the blue dots and horizontal bars in the boxes represent?Last time I posted this graph, the N used was a mere “350” recorded Shigefusa sales, the graph below represents 670+ knife sales. So what are you looking at, simply put, the average $ per mm, box plotted with the high and lows for the different finished (Kurouchi, Kasumi, Kitaeji), (S)ingle bevel and (D)ouble bevel, with handles: (Yo) and the non-listed are automatically Wa.
What are some of the major changes since the last posts? Simply put, the average did creep up a bit, mainly due to several high-end sales (i.e yo kitaeji gyutos). We clearly see that with upper whiskers shooting up or creeping towards the $10/mm+ territory.
Enjoy, if you have any questions, shoot me a message.
