Re: Is it bad to want a knife just for looks?

I think is just as bad as wanting one just for the steel

Re: Qs about stropping & maintaining R2

Hi. I had a kurosaki r2 gyuto, over the years i used many different approaches, and sharpening mediums, ranging from very basic stones to the more premium lines, they all worked. From diamond plates, to kings, shaptons, naniwas, suehiros, imanishis, jnats, ceramic rods, diamond rods... kurosaki's r2...

WTT sakai takayuki ginsan 270

Hi, I'd like to trade my takayuki ginsan 270. This is an amazing knife in every way, great profile, steel, grinds, everything. It is also too heavy for me, it clocks in at 310gr. Im not looking for anything in particular, but a cool gyuto is always nice. No single bevels, please. This knife retails ...

Re: WTS ashi ginga 270 sujihiki

Bump! This is a really nice knife, i bought it to use in a pro setting but my setting changed and i didnt use it anymore. This is comparable to the konosuke white 2 lasers that were sold a while ago, as well as tadatsuna or sakai yusuke. It takes an edge very easy, although the edge retention is not...

Re: looking for a new multi-purpose knife

The kurosaki r2 line is excellent. I used a 240 as my main knife and there was nothing it couldnt handle, bulk prep, line work, finesse cuts, it . The steel is great, the profile is very versatile, the grind is very nice, thin behind the edge with good food release.
It is within budget and in stock.

Re: WTS Ichimonji TKC 210 and 240 gyutos

They were the same knife, ichimonji used to make the tkc for kikuichi. I dont know if the ones being sold now are the exact same as they were when kikuichi sold them.

Re: Second project knife

I love hd2 steel, its great stuff, i loved how it sharpened and how it felt on the board and tge stones, but i found it lacking retention for a pro setting, although it does come back in a breeze. Something with better edge retention, or maybe just take the hd2 a little higher would be awesome. Id b...
