Just received my Tinker Tank. So excited to use it this evening for dinner.
You are the one who got it! I opened my email and it was already gone!
Where were you looking for it? Mine came from a small shop in Hong Kong.

Re: Show us your new knife!

Just received my Tinker Tank. So excited to use it this evening for dinner. Love that grind! Does it leave potatoes on the board like a Takeda? I don't have any potatoes in house.

Re: Show us your new knife!

I got my first Japanese knife today and I am super excited. It’s a Kurosaki AS Shizuku 270mm Gyuto. It’s a beast but I was pretty comfortable with it today doing everything from mincing garlic to slicing prime rib....I’m in love! Congrats. Jumping right into the deep end with a big blade. Very cool...

Re: Staining CKTG Sayas

I just finished a couple of custom sayas and picked up some stain for them. Red mahogany & gunstock stains and a clear matte polyurethane. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Yes they did a couple years back. Specifically looking for AS only. I think there was even a Steve review here on CKTG.
Wow, that is a stunner. Now I know! Good luck with your search.

Re: Searching for Sukenari AS Damascus

Do they make AS in Damascus? I have only seen it in pm steels. Fyi, knives and stones has several sg2 Damascus in stock. Also had a 270mm in AS, non Damascus.

Re: Carbon Skillets

For anyone wanting to try some blue carbon steel pans on the cheap, look at Marshall/TG Maxx/Home Goods. I picked up a bunch of 10'' skillets for work at $12.99 each. They had 3 different sizes. Make wonderful omelette pans.

Re: First Post

Aloha from the Big Island. Wanting to forge. No room. First time doing handles and purchasing Japanese blades/knives. I got a DaoVua blade (bring them back!) to practice on, then a Yahiko VG10 210 gyuto. Haven't really had a chance to put them through their paces. Used the DaoVua tonight prepping. ...
