Re: Show us your new knife!

How does it compare to the kasumi you had? That's the only reason I didn't buy one, because I love my kasumi 240. The grind on my honyaki is nearly identical to the grind of my former kasumi, which is why I love it so much. The only real difference that I noticed is that the tip on the honyaki is a...

I’ve got a 270, and it is by far my most used honyaki. I’m digging the classy handle on yours 👍🏻

Re: Show us your new knife!

Aside from the #6 cleaver that I was fortunate enough to snag from the last batch, I picked up these two 270s recently. Just one more incoming and hopefully I’l...

C'mon folks! This blade with a stock ebony handle goes for $370. The DPham handle is killer PLUS you get a saya. $400 is a great deal!

Damit Ashy, give me some money. I'm tired of watching you buy all these badass knives.
Unfortunately, you don't need to have money to buy things. :? I've been trying to cut myself off but these crazy rare knives keep popping up and I just can't help myself. I have a problem, I know. ;)

That's basically what I said to him when I messaged him about the knife shortly after he listed it. I was tempted, for sure!

Re: Konosuke MM Blue #2 Passaround

That's the only comments I remember as far as sharpening goes. I used the OOTB edge and at the end of the week I just stropped it on leather loaded...
