Wow, as others have said - beautiful work
Certainly not everyday you see a wa to yo conversion, especially with Damascus bolster. Really neat
Thanks guys, much appreciated. I had lot of fun doing this, learned a lot along the way.Looks awesome.
Thanks, and that’s solid advice as well, I am hesitating in starting over also, but one thing for sure that I won’t do another Tanaka. The B2 Sekiso cheaper basic 210 is never available, the only model available is with the Colorful handle To Go version, $309 for a 210, at this point, I learned that people are not accepting expensive Tanaka.Honestly, I wouldn't touch it. It looks just about perfect the way it is. But that's probably not gonna stop you ?
Why not buy another Tanaka dammy with a basic handle for cheap and do another one? Maybe a 240?
That should move easily on BST if you nail the conversion like with this one, should you not want to keep it that is.
It’s either that Garm can predict future or I might have a serious problem with wanting to destroy beautiful things? I woke up this morning, & this happenedHonestly, I wouldn't touch it. It looks just about perfect the way it is. But that's probably not gonna stop you ?
I wish, It’s been my fave for sure but I am running out, they only come from Russia. The last one took 3 month to arrive. It doesn’t help that I always hand-pick the patterns, & order one at a time.You must have a karelian birch forest in your backyard. Are you going to shape the handle blade on or off?
Thanks buddy!Beautiful work! That birch really does have some very interesting grain figuring!
I’ve been wanting a 210 Misono dragon for a while but the dragon only comes on 240 gyuto or larger, the 210 comes with lousy flowersSo what's the next project?
Really? Lemme know if you can find it, I’ve never seen one with dragon smaller than 240, except on garasukiI have an old Dragon Suji, they look bad ass. Now I know that what you are telling me is true, But I think I saw a Misono 210 with a dragon advertised on E-bay . Perhaps a vintage? I paused on it and opened the ad to check, and it was listed as a 210....with the Dragon. I will see if I can find it.
Thanks! Just sent the seller a question to confirm, hope it’s not a generic stock photo.
