Re: Show us your new knife!

Did a quick test session and love it. Definitely a keeper. It's very thin behind the edge and feels blade heavy in a good way. The food release is just average though. And I love this AS steel Shibata uses. I had a Shibata AS gyuto in the past and loved that steel. This one feels similar on board.

WTS Sukenari HAP40 Hairline Sujihiki 270mm

I bought this new in February 2020. Used it for a few times. Never sharpened. Just stropped once. I'm letting it go because I got a Takamura Hana 270 suji which I use more often. I'm asking for $285 all inclusive CONUS. Measurements: 265mm*36mm 173 gram Spine thickness is 2.4 mm above the heel Photo...

Here's a new one. Let's hope it's not the start of a new batch of them from this past weekend.

This one is mine and it's out for delivery today! I thought it would take weeks but only 5 days. Lucky me!

WTS Zkramer 10-inch SG2

Bought this new in November, 2019. Used it for a couple of times and sharpened once. Not a pleasure to use I’d say. Potatoes stick to it as fxk. Not thin enough behind the edge either. My original plan was to use it to practice thinning and etching, but I recently got another dammy knife from a cust...

WTS Shibata Kotetsu R2 Gyuto 240mm

I bought this new in March 2020. Used it for <10 meals. Never sharpened. Just stropped a few times. I'm letting it go because it's a bit too big with 251 actual edge length. I like the knife otherwise so I might grab a Kotetsu bunka someday. It comes with a Shibata saya which is a bit tight but it d...

Re: Best Knife for Gifting: Tojiro DP Hammered Gyuto?

I always recommend Victorinox Fibrox 8 to average home cook who shows no interests in learning sharpening. It doesn’t look too good as a gift, but it won’t chip even if you cut 80% frozen meats. And honing it regularly does make it usable for a very long time. For those who would like to have someth...
