Re: Tanaka Sekiso Wa to Yo handle conversion

Very nice did you solder the bolster on? No, although I already bought a torch with MAP gas for it. After a bunch of reading, I find many blade smith suggesting JB Weld with a pin instead, that’s the way I went with. I spent a lot of time to minimize the gap, I am very happy with the decision & out...

Re: Tanaka Sekiso Wa to Yo handle conversion

How does it feel using it in a pinch grip? Does it feel natural & comfortable? Feels pretty good, I can rest my middle finger on the bolster for finger grip comfortably. But the blade is very short as a 210, only 202mm so I don’t do finger grip, I use hammer grip on the handle & pinch on the bolster.

Tanaka Sekiso Wa to Yo handle conversion

I am posting this as Mark asked me to show him the outcome. Mark was very kind to gave me a special deal on the blade for this project, much appreciated. It’s about 80% done. The bolster is Damascus Made from pieces that I cut off from my dammy Axe. It still needs etching to bring out the bolster pa...

Re: WTS: Marko Tsourkan 220mm WH Gyuto

Same as the Toyama Ion clad Dami listed separately, $550 + shipping, US only.

However, only one of the two is for sale. If the Toyama Dami is sold, Marko will be withdrawn, & Vice versa.

Re: WTS: Marko Tsourkan 220mm WH Gyuto

Thanks! The Marko is made with 52100 mono steel, I’ve only seen it from custom knife makers & it’s known for high toughness, very necessary since Marko here has a very thin tip section. Here is a video about 52100 toughness: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=emb_title&time_continue=271&v=jec74YHKU...

Toyama Dami 210 Ion clan Gyuto - CLOSED

Picked up this Gem during JNS April sale, amazing cutter, identical performance to my Ion clad Toyama but with much more style while cutting. Super duper cutter, out cuts my Shig Kasumi & looks as cool as Ketaji with the dami in lite finish but plenty pattern contrast. Lightly used, slight natural p...
