Re: How long time does it take to produce a Shigefusa

Ok, I visited them and saw their shop. They, like most other makers, do them in runs of dozens of knives at a time to make things more efficient so it's difficult to say exactly how long it takes to make 1 knife. I would guess they can bang out 30 knives in a day and could most likely grind the bla...

As Jessie said with the Konosuke Lapel Pin,"Great, now I have to buy a $300 knife so I can get free shipping on this." :roll:
Just think you can wear that lapel pin proudly when you go into the bank for a loan ;-)

Re: Takeda Coin

Dang - How can I get the coin unless I get a Takeda knife? "must resist" at least until my wife forgets about the last purchase. You know it's not easy when your wife is the family accountant and auditor!

Re: Show us your new knife!

FedEx just rang the doorbell and Christmas comes early. Just looking at that Kato makes my wallet hurt... :? My wallet got lighter (since I got the Kono Fuji in the same buy) but it does fill out the knives that I have been pursuing for years. I am one happy camper and my wife didn't get too mad si...

Re: Show us your new knife!

FedEx just rang the doorbell and Christmas comes early. I recognize "Konosuke Sakai" and "Fujiwara Yoshiaki". On the Konosuke, is that a hamon line or the line between cladding and core steel? If the former, I'm guessing it's the Konosuke that's the unicorn? Ray mentioned it when I was out cutting ...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Jack got shorted 2 years ago and then asked me to keep his money in the slim hope that I would ever get one again. I think he might have emailed me twice for an update. Thanks Jack. I appreciate your amazing patience. :) Thank you Mark they are a pair of great knives and will be used with a big smi...

Re: Konosuke comparison

Interesting topic - I find that having searched for "the perfect knife" I have purchased so many "very nice to great knives" that I just don't cook often enough to justify having them all. It get right back to personal preference and I find that some very excellent knives just sit because I keep rea...

Re: New Gyuto Help (Takeda, Kurosaki, Mokato, Masakage, etc)

I recommended a Doi for my golf partner and he loves it. He brought it to the course to show me when he first got it and I am very impressed by the fit and finish as well as the sharp edge. I have sharpened several of his other knives but so far after a year I haven't been asked to touch up his Doi.

Re: What did you cook today?

OK - without sounding somewhat redundant - I did another Sour Cream Banana nut bread in my cast iron Field #4 skillet. I pushed the limits with two large bananas for this recipe and the bread finished quite tall and very good.

Re: Sharpening Gear Questionaire

I used a lot of different stones over the years with woodworking tools and used jigs with those but I never appreciated the degree of pressure needed (or not needed) to get a good edge. So beginners might think they need a hard stone to keep from digging in when their real issue is suing too much pr...
