Re: Show us your new knife!

We spent the evening in Osaka. We got there a bit late and all of the knife shops were closing, but I was able to hit up one shop. I was able to snag a cool stainless clad W#1 270mm gyuto (measures 268x50) forged by Kanechika-san & finished by third generation sharpener Funii Keiichi. They offered p...

Re: Show us your new knife!

What a trip. I hope you’ll do a recap of the whole thing when you return. A lot of stateside would enjoy hearing and seeing all about it. Seriously. Well, if enough people would like me to, I guess I can start a thread to highlight some of the places we went to here in Japan. The food has been spec...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Yes, of course. I don't want to imply that I know, either. I think there is a posted list of the chrysanthemum stamp companies, since there are so few of them, so it might be possible to figure out with a few searches. Not that it is important—my assumption above was based on the ABSENCE of a stamp...

Re: Show us your new knife!

That’s very possible. I just don’t know enough about either to really say anything about them with confidence. I don’t wanna be spreading any misinformation. All I know is that I can’t wait to put her to use when I get home. The only problem is that I really don’t wanna go home yet...the real world ...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Is this connected to the Kikuichi brand we are all familiar with here? Or just a similar name? Don't see a chrysanthemum symbol in the kanji. I am not sure if Kikuichimonji is related to Kikuichi, but my guess is that they are not. Both names/brands refer to the chrysanthemum, but the chrysanthemum...

Re: Show us your new knife!

That is so sweet! Nice find. Wonder what the translation is. I just showed the photo to our private guide for the day. She said that the kanji translates to “Registered by Kikuichimonji Company.” A nice tidbit of information that she just told me is that kiku means chrysanthemum, which is the crest...

Re: Konosuke Blue #2 Fujiyama 240mm gyuto

Charity was the reason I wanted it and I had full confidence Mark would follow through, Mark and Susan are solid! I also ended up with a great knife, might be the only way would get one, I’m pretty damn slow on the keyboard. I think this is great. It’s always nice to see good people doing good thin...

Re: Show us your new knife!

We’ve been in Japan for over a week, and I haven’t been able to visit any knife/stone shops until today. I was ideally looking to find some Jnats while here in Japan, but I ended up grabbing this Kikuichimonji B#1 250mm gyuto. The spine and choil are kinda sharp so I’ll fix that once I get home, but...

Re: Show us your new knife!

... Maybe Steve will be so kind to let me on his books and apply some of his magic to it. 1195014D-956F-47E3-A942-747EEEFB2E7C.jpeg This is such a great find. I'm curious as to what kind of magic you would Steve apply to this? I’m hoping we find out Marc. He’s currently in Japan enjoying some well ...

Re: Polishing, Kasumi Finish & Etching

Hey Steve, or any of you other polish pros... What can I use to get that "white cloudy" contrast, like seen on many lines like Mazaki and Toyama among others, as opposed to the more "grey cloudy" contrast. Or does the steel in the cladding have more to do with that? I’m not 100% certain so please d...

Re: Polishing, Kasumi Finish & Etching

Took the blade back to the kohetsu 800, 2k, and ume 8k before going to the aoto kouzaki and mystery stone. I altered my technique on the stones. I started with the blade at a 45 doing normal scrubbing, then I started doing long sweeping passes starting at a 45 and moving to a 90, and ended on each ...

I’ve tried a couple times but I’m too slow. Gonna have to hire a speedster, pd7077 we need to talk.

Re: Konosuke White #2 Fujiyama No. 6 Cleaver

these kono cleavers looks like it's done by the same group of people who does the mizuno ones (same finish, same profile, same length and height, same geometry as far as I can tell from photos). Excellent cutters that would benefit from a rehandle and at 290 usd a piece is an absolute steal! I woul...
