Looks like you've put off etching that Tanaka in favor of enjoying the color-play! Nice shot.
Do you cut on that cookie slab, or it more of a cheese board?

Haha. Yep. I do love the blues. Mostly just didn’t want to dull the edge yet, the knife is so nice to use right out of the box.

And no I don’t cut on that board, It’s actually not mine. I am a travel nurse working in San Diego right now, I usually rent furnished places. I just use a bamboo cutting board I got a long time ago.

Nothing special but I wanted to get one before it was too late: This is a Toyama 210 B#2 stainless clad. It weighs in at 175 grams and maybe will be getting a new handle. He does such a great job on heat treatment and oob edge is outstanding.

I already have a 210mm Moritaka. When I saw that CKTG had one 240mm left, I decided to add it to my kitchen knife arsenal.

How do you like them OOTB? Been interested in one of these but I’ve read a good amount of people saying they need thinning / spine & choil rounding / handle work. That wouldn’t necessarily put me off, just wondering.

I have Moritaka gyutos in both AS and Blue #2. OOTB, the edges have been excellent for me on any cutting task I've put them to, and they pass any tomato test after extended use. I don't see any need for thinning. The spine and choil could use some finishing work. The choil ,in particular, is on the rough side. I don't view these as significant shortcomings, particularly at their price point. The handles are basic and fine. All Moritaka have a welded stainless tang, so one has less of a concern about the tang rusting in the wood wa handle.

I did not make it myself. Look for UnusualWorkshop on Etsy. The guy's stuff caught my eye. He didn't have anything for a 300mm blade, so I asked him to make something that would work and to let his creativity run wild. He used cotinus wood (aka Smoketree) to give a little contrast to the knife's ebony handle. The way he did the wood grain just blows my mind though.

I have not used my 270mm version in years. Recently, I decided I will get it out and use it once I am confident I can sharpen a consistent 12 degree half angle, not before. I admire your bravery.

I am happy to see a 240mm in action and loved by the owner.

New knife, new board.

Yoshikane Hammered 180mm in SDK and Hinoki cutting board.
Knife is amazingly sharp, just silly.
Board is aromatic like a pine forest.
