Re: Next knife-of-the-month passaround?

I would be interested for the Yoshimitsu b#2 240mm.

Interested to see how it stacks up vs. the Shibata AS (almost same weight, but different profile and steel)

New resin for wood related projects

I just finished a bottle of Artresin. In the past I have used West System (105 with 205 and 207) with good results. Any other brands or products that I should be looking at? The Artresin was a bit viscous for my liking. It must be thin enough to penetrate voids and to avoid too many micro bubbles wh...

Re: 240 Gyuto recommendation

Is it possible to get the Kashima and Kotetsu AS in the same photo? or a tracing of profiles for comparison? Also, is the AS 49mm tall at heel and almost 250mm long? The Kashima that I sampled was 47 mm tall and 245mm long Edit: Now that SteveG is back, is there a review video of the New Kotetsu AS ...

The moritaka ks that I tried was more in line with the Doi interpretation than any other KS attempt.

Re: So, I think I am a 240 convert.

First, I wake up and see my mother in law cutting carrots and potatoes with my 270 Sakai Yusuke gyuto.
Then I read this...

My goodness! Where is this world heading at?

Congratulations Kit! It was about time! Lol!

Re: Jikko Akebono, 240mm Gyuto

Ryan, Yes it is. Currently, it is my favorite non-custom knife and the first I would replace if anything happened to it. I like it so much, that I also got the k-tip version of it. Also an excellent performer! I have only used the White#2 back in 2013 from the Konosuke Fujiyama series and I would da...
