Re: WTS - Tanaka ironwood 240 gyuto

It looks like it states WTS in the title. Stay safe Ray, we pulled our people out of all the islands a couple weeks ago and how to return the first week of May. Kind of crazy.

Re: No service interruptions.

This is pretty awesome Mark and Sue! Given all the negativity it’s refreshing to see a positive / charitable act!

Pretty sure mine is a Shigeki. Thanks to all who helped figure that out. Back for sale. 950.00 shipped priority.

Thanks for the patience.

So is this an older Ironwood you got or one of the new ones that you got from Mark about 2 months ago? Thanks.
It’s an older one. A friend bought it while in Japan.

Re: Tanaka ironwood 240 gyuto

I’m not the guy to explain this simply because I don’t know much about it. Apparently Kazuyuki Tanaka made the original ones, the older ones. Shigeki Tanaka made the later ones. If this isn’t right please feel free to explain this or correct this info as you see fit if your reading this. They look a...

Damn, knew I should have just snatched this up! :mrgreen:
I’m not sure it is Jeff, trying to figure it out. My luck usually I sell it and then find out something like that. :D :lol:

Re: Tanaka ironwood 240 gyuto

I’m gonna withdraw this. I’m being told that it might be a Kazuyuki, if it checks out I think I’ll keep it.

No sense in having them if they are just going to be packed away.

Humm, how do we fix that?

Re: Tanaka ironwood 240 gyuto

One time price drop to 950.00. If it doesn’t pop I’ll have to put it back and pick another one to sell. Getting hard to do that, they are all keepers.

Xerxes gyuto

Just picked this up. A friend had lent me his Xerxes, a forum member, and I loved it so I went after this one. It’s a wonderful knife, his attention to detail and fit and finish are some of the best. The edge is 262mm, heel height is 58m. I’ll attach the specs off his page, listed is the steel and t...

Re: Field cast iron skillets factory seconds sale

There are those among us who really know vintage cast iron. Maybe we should start a thread “show us your vintage cast iron”, it would be a way to learn more. When you look on Etsy and EBay there’s always a load of them with price ranges all over the place.

Re: Field cast iron skillets factory seconds sale

Here’s a fun comparison. A Field number 8 compared to one of my favorite vintage skillets, a Piqua Ware #8. The Field skillet weighed more at 1992 grams, the Piqua weighed 1642 grams, which really surprised me. Both are finished about the same as far as quality goes, they act much the same in use to...

Re: Field cast iron skillets factory seconds sale

Thanks. I used to keep an eye out on ebay for vintage pieces that weren't collector material; after a while you get a sense for which ones might be good daily users. They make good gifts. Demand seems to be rising and it's not as easy to get a good one for a reasonable price. The smooth texture's a...

As much as you cook I think it’ll fast become one of your favorites. They are so well done.

The first pay it forward thread I ever saw was here and it was Steve giving away 15-20 items. That really left an impression on me, one the good guys for sure!
