Re: kiritsuke vs Bunka

Traditionally, a kiritsuke is a single bevel knife with a lower tip than a yanagiba, which gives it a flatter edge profile. I think what you’re talking about is a kiritsuke tip (K-tip) gyuto, which has the same kiritsuke shaped (and lower) tip. I always viewed a bunka as a K-tip nakiri.

Re: Knife steel statistics

The nerd in me totally appreciates this information, but the carnivore in me would like you to redo this using non-vegan software.

In all seriousness, nice work man!

WTS: Fujii Keiichi Stainless Clad W#1 270 Gyuto

I picked this knife up from Tower Knives when I was in Japan a year and a half ago. It’s stainless clad W#1 by Fujii Keiichi. I polished and etched the knife, which brought out some unexpected banding in the stainless cladding. I knocked off the stock ho handle and replaced it with a nicer rosewood/...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Why is it that whenever I try to trim down my collection, I end up finding a knife that I can’t say no to?!? 2020 is the year that I’m supposed to shift some funds towards other hobbies, but I couldn’t turn down this Yoshikane Tamamoku V2 Suminagashi 270 when it was offered to me. I don’t like laser...

How about making it so we could post photos direct here. I can't use sharing sites (government dictated) but I can upload photos to sites direct.
You should be able to attached files. Go to the “full editor” and then click on the “attachment” tab under the text box.

Re: Show us your new knife!

Been trying to slow down on new purchases, but I finally broke and got my first knife in 2020: a Konosuke 180mm ginsan wide bevel nakiri. Been after this one for a while so it was pretty easy to break my resolution. https://i.imgur.com/faevJyD.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RbdkKIR.jpg https://i.imgur.com/...

George, could you post a few photos? I’m curious to see how the cladding has held up in terms of patina over time.

WTS: CII Bladeworks Diff Hardened 240mm Western

Sadly, it’s time to whittle down the collection so I’m reluctantly putting up my Carter Hopkins differentially hardened W2 western handled gyuto. The handle is made from gaboon ebony, brass snakeskin carbon fiber from FatCarbon, brass & black G10 spacer, and brass pins. The saya is made from a nice ...

Re: Polishing, Kasumi Finish & Etching

This pair has been a great combo in the kitchen: Raquin 270 KT and 80mm kogatana. They get a lot of use, especially this past week so I decided to give them a post-Christmas spa treatment.
