Re: WTS: Fujii Keiichi Stainless Clad W#1 270 Gyuto

Holy cargo pants, that's a great looking blade there. If it were more in my size preference I'd be slapping myself for missing this

WTS KONOSUKE FUJIYAMA FT B2 240

This knife is still new in the box. I keep planning on using it, but just haven't gotten to it yet. It's absolutely gorgeous, and one that I really don't want to let go of. However a custom is up and I need to create funds for it. Price is $480 shipped conus (PayPal included). Shipping outside of co...

Re: WTS: Sayas

Brilliant idea with the drilled holes and leather strap. I may have to borrow that concept

Re: Show us your new knife!

Medium carbon Damascus clad 52100 core gyuto with forged (and super thin) distal taper from Tobi / Metal Monkeys. Very impressive F&F, and performance. That looks incredible! How tall is that? How do you like the D handle on it? It's about 53mm at the heel. The handle is more a western wa hybrid wi...

Re: Show us your new handle

Just built my first handle to go with a Konosuke Fujiyama Funayuki 247x53 blade. I used the existing blonde buffalo horn and attached it to a fun piece of ironwood. I'm quite pleased with it, but it was making me nervous during the process.
Handle is an octagonal hybrid, with the top portion rounded.

Re: WTS Fujiyama FT

Didn't Kosuke mention in the Konosuke thread that they may not be making more FT style knives? If that's the case I'm quite pleased I have one.

Re: Show us your new knife!

Ethan, I think just about every yo shig kitaeji I've seen has some sort of curly something wood for the handle. It's like an unspoken rule or something. I say break the rule. Buck the system. And speaking of buck, find some beautiful buckeye burl. That would compliment the pattern of the blade nicel...

Re: Konosuke Updates

What surprises me though is that the W1 240 has been in stock for a while now. Of the FM series, in my experience, the W1 is the better performing in the FM series
