Re: Show us your new knife!

I picked one up as well. Here it is next my Black Lotus. Mines even heavier at 463g :shock: I’m a big fan of this knife. The grind works really well. Impressive food release and it doesn’t even crack carrots. The weight really makes it power through ingredients. 66B5A67A-C5B1-4DCB-A983-735F26CC81E9....

Re: Home Made Saya - Any Tips?

Also, be careful about which kind of glue you use. I made some with titebond iii only to discover it will rust some blades due to its low pH. I haven’t tried it yet, but titebond i is supposed to be more appropriate.

Re: Asymetric (60/40) vs Symetric (50/50) Bevel

Lefty here. I’ve tried both and for me asymmetric is usually the wrong way 40/60 though I’ve used lefty biased 60/40 too. I don’t notice much difference and don’t think it’s worth worrying about. Either way, you can adjust it while sharpening pretty easily. The way the overall grind is biased has a ...

Hopefully more 300s than 270s, just saying 😁
This! I have a 270 that I really like. It just needs another 30mm 😁

Re: Is the Toyama worth the tag?

Here’s my watanabe 270 though now that I’ve done some digging I’ve had it since mid 2018, not 2019. My toyamas looked almost exactly like Steve’s 3rd pic. For the wat I was looking for something lefty friendly as most of these knives have a righty bias but I got lucky C846CD22-054C-44D3-A5DE-6FE0619...

Re: Is the Toyama worth the tag?

I had the same experience. I had a 240 from late 2018 and a 270 from 2019 and they were too light for my taste. I got an ironclad watanabe 270 in 2019 though and that one is amazing. It’s a heavy beast though. It was 270g or so I think before i swapped to a custom handle and made it even heavier. I’...
