I'm going to guess there's not a nicer collection in the UK. - Cool stuff Tom.

Nice collection Tom. The Takamura SG2 caught my eye, you might be one of the few people here who have one of these.

I picked it up in Japan, and was my first real japanese gyuto. The edge it came with was really impressive, i don't think i've been able to improve on it as it came tree topping sharp. Holds the edge for ages too.
Something makes me grab for the ITK over it most of the time though, think i just prefer the balance, but it really should see more board time than it does. Maybe a handle upgrade is in order :D

Stunning collection Tom. The threads in this forum keep getting better and better. Can you talk about any particular favorites?

Yeah, what they said. Some beautiful knives!! I only hope to use that kind of variety, much less own them in a long, long time.

Nice Tom, Your ones have turned out very nice. Have you put the blue paper core damascus to the test much yet?

Couple of additions to the kit:

Zwilling Cermax petty in MC66 (ZDP-189?) got it to try the steel and still looking for the perfect petty


Hattori Forum Petty VG-10, again searching for the petty, and wanted to try the Forum line


Stephan Fowler 240 Gyuto Wrought and 52100 San Mai. Only arrived 2 hours ago......


Takeda Double bevel Deba in Blue 2. Bought it for some of the heavier tasks, and really like the Takeda Gyuto


Tojiro ITK breadknife with rehandle in Horse Chestnut burl. Best serrated knife i've used


Tojiro Senkou (Flash in the US) VG-10.


Watanabe 240mm Gyuto Blue 2

Glad to see you added some knives to your meager collection ;) Very nice set! Hard to pick a favorite, but I realized again how much I like the profile of the Watanabe gyutos.

Just noticed the thread (in which I posted of course) where you documented rehandling the Tojiro yourself. :O

Nice work TB, and a brilliant overall collection.

I picked it up in Japan on kappabashi dori. Sharpened it the other day but it was almost too sharp sticking in the board if I was any more than gentle. Still working up the courage to rehandle it

I thought your fiance had taken control of your finances due to your mental illness.:lol2:

+1 on the Takamura.
He might have prepared for this with two identities with separate bank accounts... or he's still in denial. :scared4:


Tom: nice collection there!

Somewhere else
If that Tak had a custom wa handle by one of the scroundrels who play with wood around here... ;) Well- it might be too much. It might cause a dimensional rift just by existing or something...

I just noticed your Carter honesuki is actually AS steel, not white. What happened to the heel on that guy?
