Re: Which Tanaka?

I have used all but the vg10. The ginsan i used was older and had a slightly thicker grind, my experiences with the sekizos and the nashiji ive used concur with what has been said before. I have an r2 gyuto that has a grind that is very similar to the sekizo, and had an ironwood santoku that has one...

WTS aotos, monzento, uchigumori

Hi guys 1. Kouzaki aoto. 5.6 x 5.6 x 20. Medium soft stone, not a mud monster but very easy to use. This stone gives a nice working kasumi finish with good contrast of around 3k, lots of bite on the edge. I like the edges this stone gives a lot, and used it as my finisher and touch up stone at work ...

Re: Nonlaser stainless-clad 210 that can rock

Ive used the tanaka nashiji, though only the 240. It was ground very thin, the tip was very agile, it rocked really well, just like the other tanakas that ive used. I really liked it, the steel waa veey good as well. It doesn't have the convex grind of the sekizo line, but it is thinner behind the e...

Re: Pro seeking 210 Gyuto

Many of the knives in this site will do very good in a pro setting, all of them will be better than what ever you are using now. That being said, id like to share some general considerations if you are looking for a main knife. make it a 240, specially if you have good knife skills. Make it semi or ...

Re: Looking for a knife recommendation

Hi. I have or had most of the knives on your list, the koishi I had was great, nice profile, great steel, very thin and agile tip, really thin behind the edge. I have a kurosaki r2 that is my daily driver, it doesn't really excel at anything, but it doesn't lack either, not too thin, not too thick e...

Re: “Need” another knife, maybe two

Rather than brand names, or individual makers, I would concentrate in regions. You have an echizen mid weight, and a sakai laser. I think a Sanjo knife would be a great alternative, the yahikos are from sanjo, as are mazaki, yoshikane, kochi, shigefusa, wakui, etc... while they are very different, t...

Re: Petty Recommendation please 135-150mm

I really like tanakas knives, but I wouldn't buy the b2 iron clad version of his petty, although not as bad as they used to be, I still find them reactive enough to be a hassle for a knife that will be seeing lots of acidic food and will be used for multiple tasks as petties normally are, they are a...
