2. Devin Thomas ITK 240mm Gyuto #2 (Thanks again Jarrod)
3. Konosuke White #2 240mm Gyuto recently rehandled by Mike (amazing job!)

Yes, I am no doubt a huge fan of the profile of the gyuto. Although I could see myself with a couple more suji's, maybe even a Fujiyama :aikido: . Let me know how you like yours Pescador.

Not so humble, Pete Nice stuff
Exactly what I was thinking! You have some great looking knives there Pete. I always wondered who owned an ITK suji.

I might have to drive down to Chi-town and steal your Yoshikane and all your custom handles...funny part is I am half serious right now.:angel2:

Anytime you guys want to get a Midwest gathering going in Chicago I am down. There are too many awesome spots here for drinking and eating that would make it the perfect spot for a day of fun.

The Shig on pure aesthetics is my all time favorite, simple yet elegant and everything is absolutely perfect on this knife. For example, the saya, which Dr. Naka ordered for me fits perfectly without a pin and will stay in place. You have to see it to believe, just how well it fits the blade.

The DT Gyuto is a cutting machine and the fit and finish is rock solid for a mid tech knife.

I have to say that I am very happy with all of the knives pictured above, the only one that I might replace is the Fujiwara FKM Honesuki. I sent Mr. Rader an email about a boning knife so possibly in a year the Fujiwara will be replaced, only time will tell.

Nice, Mr. Stereo. You do need some more single bevels though. Is your taste in audio equipment as good?

Picked up this 5.4 sun Carter AS Nakiri as part of his Blade Show sale. No regrets here, great steel, great grind and incredibly fun to use!
