Re: 180mm KU gyuto as a gift for a friend

I like Watanabe also and have the same Nakiri Jacko9 mentions above but got the upgraded handle. Your choice comes standard with a cheap burnt chestnut handle with plastic ferrule. Upgrading to the least expensive handle as of today would cost about $246 which i would do for sure instead of the stoc...

Re: WTS Daovua Kiri cleaver and small cleaver

The Kiri here is alot of fun to use, and its a great herb rocker also. I pull mine out to make salads and love it for trimming beans etc. Even if you don't use it that often, its a great convo piece.

Re: Heiji Nakiri(?) Help Needed: What is this thing for?

Interesting! So far from searching Google it I cant find a similar knife so far. Most Nakiri have a forward swept end of the spine or some perpendicular, this one appears just like this bunka from Takeda:

Re: Upgrade from a Victorinox

Tojiro VG1 for a gift? you can save 30 bucks but its a cheap handle with plastic ferrule, you don't want to give a cheap handled gift. You like what you have, so send one of those. Blade protectors are only 5 bucks... but only used if knife stuck in a drawer with other knives...Ask for one when you ...

Re: Upgrade from a Victorinox

That pissed me off first time i did it and I scraped the heel on the side of a coarse stone a bit to round it. But its been awhile now since that happened. I think i got cut more cleaning and drying these days. Hehe, sharp blades make nice clean cuts so they heal quicker! Remember the old saying, "N...

While the Tojiro ITK has loads of good reviews, here is what ATK says: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2H0oPg_h4U Unfortunately they never tell you what they tested and If you cant visually id the knife you never know. I have a Miyabi Artisan sg2 which looks good on the mag strip and has a nice com...

Re: What's your current go to knife?

Am in Nakiri lala land lately between my Watanabe and my Toyama 180's, but reach for the Anyru B#2 210 or Gihei 150 petty as needed. But sometimes I'm tempted to try the cleaver only route for a week or two just to see if I can do it...
