Re: KS Asymetry

Thanks joe and kit. @joe, i get what your saying about referring to grind. It just seems when ive come across knives that have an asymetric grind that they often seem to have asymetric edges or at leasy it causes me to pause and think about this aspect, when approaching them to sharpen. Where as kni...

Re: My next step knife suggestions please

Thanks. I'm sure I'll be sanding it soon. Yeah, its super easy. I procrastinated untill it peased me off enough to just do it. Just curious.... did it leave a bunch of scratches? Any tips on how to avoid that or will all be just fine??? +1 to what the others said. You can also tap the blade and the...

It depends on who you ask. The guy who bought it probably thinks it's appropriate :) . When i was thinking of selling mine, i would of sold it at $235 maybe even $240 and it has the kono ho wood handle

Good points, in this situation it is actually both.
Your bevel was asymetric too, right?

Re: Cleaver handle opinion please!

The radious is just too big! It accordions everything. I wanted to like it as it had the greatest edge I’ve ever had on cleaver. If takeda ever comes out with a Dead flat or slightly eased in the front cleaver then I’ll give one another shot, but as they are now I have no use for one. The takedas d...

Re: Cleaver handle opinion please!

Takeda and moritaka cleaver handles are massive and nice, the cleavers not so much. Takeda cleaver is not nice? Been on my bucket list for awhile, why do you say they are not nice? The radious is just too big! It accordions everything. I wanted to like it as it had the greatest edge I’ve ever had o...

Re: WTS: Masamoto KS Gyuto 240mm

According to Mark..this is it for a while...possibly longer. The knife was priced at $350 which to my knowledge is what every one else was charging, so I don't think they have been inflated. I was hoping to get back all my investment and have the buyer pay for shipping, thus my price. It is pretty ...

Re: Cleaver handle opinion please!

Short and fat makes sense, although my moritaka had a longer nice rosewood handle that i liked. That was a very heavy cleaver though.

Honestly, I do not put much effort into angles and just go by what feels right. Has never seemed to be an issue.
You do, do the left side more obtuse for a right handed knive though, right? I was planning on just following the original geometry.

Re: WTS: Masamoto KS Gyuto 240mm

Actually shocked this is still here given the firestorm that preceeded it. Most reviews have been very positive, I know I really like mine. Yeah i can understand why that dont resonate with some, and others be like wow i love this knive. For me the knive lives up to the hype so far. Although they a...

Re: WTS: Masamoto KS Gyuto 240mm

Im curious if these are going to get hard to get again or if retailers will restock regularly. I rememer mark saying thats kind of it from him. All the other places that had them for a bit are all sold out, except one retailer and the price got quite inflated- hate it when they do that. Im glad i en...

Re: KS Asymetry

Yeah, it probably isn't 50/50 but it is closer to 60/40 than 70/30 if I had to guess. Nowhere near as noticeable as something like my Misono which says it is 70/30. I guess the thing is that sometimes a 70/30 is closer to a 60/40 and other times it is closer to a 80/20 or even a 90/10...lol. That i...
