All gone. I can always order more but I'm guessing it will take a year to get them. And I'm an optomist.

Re: Knives that do and don’t need finish sharpening

Could you specify what finish sharpening entails? I usually find I can get a knife even sharper but sharper is a quantitative thing. So a white steel knife typically can get quite sharp but not necessarily hold its edge as well as an AS blade. So what grit is a minimal finish sharpening edge? Would...

Re: Konosuke "New" FM

Looks like it, if the specs on that page are current Specs get updated when the item arrives. I believe those specs are for the last ones that came. Not to say these wont be similar. Also...the true extra thick 240 Blue FM's were not production knives, they were actually Kaiju's that did not meet s...

Re: WTS Kanehiro ginsan Gyuto, Nakiri and Petty (Australia)

In the U.S. shipping is free at CKTG for orders over $99, and there are two versions of this 240mm ginsan gyuto, one is $299 while the other with a cherry wood handle is $270. Both are out of stock, though. Please refrain from these kind of comments on another person's classified thread. Questionin...

Re: What is the purpose of the middle layer in a clad knife with 3 steels?

5 layers is gomia I think. The new trend I am seeing is copper. The two reasons, 1) it looks good to many, 2) using copper as a shim is different than forgewelding steel. Copper melts below temps where you forge. The knife above could be carbon migration... that’s still three layers but the carbon ...

Re: What is the purpose of the middle layer in a san mai blade?

I think san mai loosely translates to 3 flat things. During forging cladding is laid on the bottom middle layer in the middle edge steel on the top. Then the knife is folded in on itself so the edge steel meets and the middle layer is sandwiched inbetween the edge steel and cladding. Thats not quit...

Re: Favorite chefs knife??

I have been happy with Michael Rader, look him up and give him a call. While you wait for your knife to be made stick around here and see what comes up. Mate, I'm not sure I would recommend a fully hand made or customized knife to a new user like the OP. There is more than enough cannon fodder on t...

Re: What is the purpose of the middle layer in a san mai blade?

I'm confused...what middle layer? The middle layer is the cutting steel.
San-mai means 3 layers or 3 parts.
The middle Hagane and the 2 outer, Jigane.
I must be missing something here :?
