Re: Show us your new knife!

My small collection of unusual Kurouchi finish TF's Top - Morihei 240 Ku W#1 gyuto and soft iron cladding, finished on Jnats by Morihei. No mistaking that TF DNA.

At home we use a Rancillio Silvia with PID and a Rocky Grinder.
That was my first serious setup but w/out PID. Bought in Italy where I caught the coffee bug and served me well for over 10 years. Still have it as its 240V and used as backup for the main equipment.

Re: Coffee Lovers

My setup
Londinium L-1P permanently plumbed into the mains
Mythos Clima Pro grinder
Freshly roasted beans from Klatch, Redbird or Caffe Lusso

Cramped but everything is to hand

Re: Chef Knife made from 9/11 Building Steel

They make watch cases from U-boat steel too. That is far more questionable IMO. Memorializing the 9/11 atrocity in this way is not disrespectful but to each his own

Re: New Jikko Honyaki Gyuto

Are you sure there's a Jikko-san? I think thats the name of a wholesaler/retail store. I imagine these were forged by Shiraki or Genkai

Re: Suggestion: List Weight in Grams

Everyone should be using metric. Besides the US only Burma and Liberia still use the old system....... I'll leave it at that

When I see weight in oz or blade height, length in inches I have to convert for it to make sense.

Think these are exclusive to Hitohira and whoever he supplies.
Hitohira could be the only distributor at the moment, especially for ex-Japan retailers ;)

There may be other retail sources in Japan although output is probably limited for this new maker.
