Re: Currently Available

This knife is perfect for someone who prefers smaller compact blades in the kitchen. It is the right size for medium and smaller ingredients, especially small fruits, herbs, in hand work, and of course slicing garnishes for drinks :) This is a collaborative piece I made along with my friend Carter H...

Re: 2017 Customs and WIP stuff

The amount of belts I go through is insane...Anyway, here is a handle I have fit and "locked in" The epoxy is curing right now, I will post finished pictures tomorrow. Tang is extra short on this one, the blade is a fairly narrow 210mm and verty light , the balance is still near the heel. https://i....

Re: Black Friday special

Yes I see what you are saying, the company itself seem to have a thing for using hi tech methods alongside traditional. Thats pretty cool in my book. You get best of both worlds. If its screened it could probably come off pretty easy , it is a bit of a cheesy look.

Re: Imanishi Pink Brick 220

great review Kit. You are really helping me up my game just by reading these. I recently got some shapton Pros, the 2K and 5K are nice but the 320 I got is dishing way too fast for a thinner stone. Lots of mud , so maybe this pink imanishi will be a nice upgrade/replacement for me.

Re: Black Friday special

I would be tempted to pick one of these up if it went on sale: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/taaskeb19.html

Honestly, these look exquisite! AS core, hammered stainless cladding...sweet shape, the list goes on

Re: Knives and sun exposure

Sometimes windows block out UV light? I think its the UV that would cause the most problems. Most woods will change tone/color over time but this is fine/natural imo. You can refinish them with sand paper and oil in a few years.

Re: 2017 Customs and WIP stuff

Thanks Mark! The latest is an absolute laser. 2mm at the heel, full distal taper, ground to zero and 15 deg. inclusive bevels applied. Just a couple strokes on my nubatama 150 raised a burr. Refined with shapton Pros from 320 grit to 2K then 5K, stropped on a 10K imanishi. scary sharp. https://i.img...

Re: Too far gone?

I will post the steps I take right here. It is really not too bad of a job if you have the right tools. Even a knife as abused as this one has a ton of life left.
