Re: Black Lotus Knives

Just to keep you all in the loop the pony express has not delivered the knife, typical for where I live. I’m hoping to get it Monday and get the handle installed by Tuesday and sent to participant number two the same day, Andreu.

Re: Best food release options out there? gyuto or knife line

I have the Anyru, it does a great job. Out of all the knives I’ve used, the best for food release has been a Kippington fishhook Gyuto, fishhook refers to the grind. He’s a hobbyist out of Australia who has quite a following, I would post a pic buts its packed.

Re: Sanding Choils and Spines

I am not an expert but I am pretty sure there are a number of different types of sandpaper that can be used to sand metal, and the choice depends on the type of metal (I think certain sandpapers have metal particles on them instead of only sand, so they are different than the ones you would use for...

Glad to see this sold. I own a virtually identical knife and it is undoubtedly one of the most treasured in my collection (I think mine is closer to 201). I hope the 240 is at least as good! I'm sorry you couldn't just keep both!
Me too. This going to a deserving home, I like that!

Re: Show us your new knife!

Been a while since I’ve gotten a new toy, but this one makes me really happy. I’ve been on the hunt for an old Takeda Classic gyuto, and I finally found one thanks to the efforts of a couple good friends. I had an NAS, and this classic performs like what I expected a Takeda to be like. The original...

SPF And to those who wrote, sorry about the pricing! I was going based on my notes from a purchase years back and never did my due diligence. Would have noticed that these are now available for less. Fixed the price, and should have a happy buyer. Guess I had a depreciating asset! Still, a very nic...

Konosuke Damascus FM 200 Gyuto - SOLD!

I have a Konosuke FM Blue#1 damascus for sale. I’m the second owner, the first never used it, I used it twice for a couple very easy meal prep sessions. It’s a beautiful knife, edge is 191mm, heel height is 47mm. Ebony handle, original box. I’m only selling because I landed the same knife in a 240. ...

Re: Okeya single bevels

Thanks guys. I really enjoyed it when Steve did a PIF thread. I’m glad I can do a few things too. I enjoy this forum, it’s a great community that gives a lot to us all! I’ll probably have a few more things over the next week.

Good night 👍
