Re: Yahiko Shirogami #2 bunka

I feel like I can get almost any knife screaming sharp. It’s more a question of how easily it sharpens and how long it keeps the edge.

Re: Yahiko Shirogami #2 bunka

I have the yahiko hakata, easily one of my new favorites. Performance is quite good with a really nice tip and quite thin behind the edge.. I would be hesitant to do much butternut squash (or the like) with it, but maybe because I'm still in the phase where I'm babying it. What kind of work / produc...

Re: Young Samurai

Mark, you are committed to getting every last cent I have. Lol. I would be in. Jesse, Maybe we can offer this to your crew? Mark, I will be looking in to this with some of the guys. My guess is there will be some interest.. I doubt it would be more than 5-10. Of course I could extend the offer to o...

Re: Possible Okeya passaround

I sent my kogatana and saya to Nakneker, it should arrive on Thursday. Not sure why ups seems to be dragging their feet on this one.. But if you guys want to see the saya you may want Nak to hold off on shipping everything out for a couple days.

Re: Who has tried their kono western Sweden gyutos

I got the 270 gyuto and use it frequently for cutting melons and the like.. Very good in a pro setting. I suspect it will be a little while before I need to sharpen it.

Re: knife to match an old stock 270 KS saya

I wonder if you could send the saya to Mark and ask him to fit a knife to it grab bag style.. Just give him some general guidelines for what your preferences and budget are. I bet he'd get a kick out of that (once he gets back).

Re: Staining a saya

I’ve stained a few of those sayas and I haven’t had any issues.

Here’s a link that shows some I did a while back.

Re: Possible Okeya passaround

I can send the Kogatana & Saya to you if you want it to piggyback the other things on the pass around then you can send it back after. Let me know what you want to do.

Re: Repairing a gyuto tip

You may not need to do much tip repair since it sounds like you are planning to thin the knife. Thinning it might (for the most part) take care of the tip issue. I would thin the knife first, then grind the spine (as necessary) and sharpen last. For the tip.. Flip the knife and grind on the spine un...

If you guys want to try it I could send it for a little pass around, maybe send it to nakneker and then go from there.
