I had been after one of these for a month and thought it would never happen but..In the mean time I had gotten a Wantanabe and while you can never have too many knives, I decided I would...

Re: Time to spin some birds, help me break them down.

I also have the Gihei 150 that Jeff has and did exactly what he did to it and it gets used alot. Its a nice sturdy knife with good edge retention.

Re: Time to spin some birds, help me break them down.

6)Do you prefer Western or Japanese handle? With a honesuki again, I'm open. I'll probably replace it if it's not stabilized anyways. Am I the only one wanting stabilized handles on butchery tools, ha? Aha, someone agrees with me about stabilized handles! I bought a Tojiro colored series Homesuki t...

Re: Kitchen renovation, butcher block idea

HI Sean; Ive seen alot of homes in my occupation but never anything like that. My first thought would be that you will be always cleaning it cause debris will be getting inside the edges of its cutout. After you use it for some time its going to look "used" which may detract from your new kitchens b...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Wantanabe 180 Pro As Nakiri. This isn't fancy but sure is a good cutter and my first knife ordered from japan where they made it for me. (which was kinda scary but gratifying) The edge just about disappears! Thanks for advice from Jacko9! https://i.imgur.com/X1gx8nP.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Uw2TEdI.j...

Re: recommendation for 180mm gift (first Japanese knife)

I agree a 165 Santoku might not fit the bill for a 180 chefs knife. I also have a few of them and they just aren't on par with a 180 gyuto. Your Kanehiro choice is good. Have the bunka version of that knife and it cuts and looks great. Unfortunately a few of your choices are OOS. Adding to the oos p...
