Re: Shiro Kamo R2 Damascus 210 vs Takamura Damascus R2

Well it seems like the Kamo has unanimous support while there are no comments on Takamura. I asked Mark if he could get one and he cant. Ill add the Kamo to the bucket list since i just had to snag the tall nakiri Kalaeb just listed in classifieds. And then there is that Toyamo I want...Well you kno...

Re: WTS sukenari zdp 189 damascus 270 gyuto.

Hi So I'm super interested in this gyuto bt I can get a brand new one frm yoshhiro for 500 so is there any wiggle room so to speak??? Wiggle room between 520 and 500? Since you dont have to pay tax more than makes up for wiggle room. I cant find a link for a 270 damascus Yoshiriro either. This a st...

Re: New Pass Around

Welcome to the forum Josh. While i appreciate your enthusiasm I have a minimum post limit for a good reason. Since most of the pass arounds are initiated by members its their knife that gets around, not Marks. Would you want to send your new $250 knife to a stranger and hope for the best? Enjoy the ...

Shiro Kamo R2 Damascus 210 vs Takamura Damascus R2

I've been wanting a nice Damascus for my collection for sometime now and the Takamura has been calling me, but I see the Shiro Kamo recent addition and wonder. Anyone have any experience with the takamura and or the Shiro Kamo? Here are the links to both: https://www.mtckitchen.com/takamura-hana-dam...

Your friends will do much better with a line knife https://www.chefknivestogo.com/argtgy21.html Actually She wont. 210 is too big and she wont touch it, she will perceive the exposed machi as the knife being defective and a laser is too delicate for a knife beater.

Re: Looking for two new knives

I think a Shibata petty might fit the bill. The big Nakiri I've seen raves about is Watanabe, but I think availability is spotty. Have you considered a Chinese cleaver? Or look at the Tall Nakiri section. While I dont have a tall nakiri as Im waiting for a Kurosaki, I have tried a Makoto tall nakir...

Re: Looking for two new knives

Lots of Nakiris but most are 165mm, only one or two 180 available. Right now I would prolly recommend this Itto-Ryu: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/itryuhana17w.html If you might like a little more weight and height maybe a tall nakiri will work for you. Bunch of these in stock with different handle...

Re: Knife Recommendations

Which length is more useful? that depends on how much room you have for cutting and to some extent your skill with knives. I hate to point out the obvious here but for the same price as the Harukaze you could have that exact knife your brother has but with a nicer handle than the Harukaze: https://w...
