Re: "New": Is it just me?

Yeah, I've been guilty of that. Maybe just an honest recitation of actual use (5 min. of veggie prep) and honest condition (no chipping or scratches)?

Re: Kohetsu Hap40 210mm, New Handle

Dog ate my handle. Lol. Haven't heard that one yet.

But I'd believe it from Nick. Grade A+ seller. New handle definite improvement over stock.

When the word "behind" is clearly an adjective and not a noun.

Re: Completely confused myself, so I must ask!

Anryu or Kanehiro. I'd avoid any sharpener at a farmers market, outside Ace hardware, etc., until you fully vet them that they know how to sharpen Japanese chef knives, can identify the proper blade angle, have legit whetstones on them, etc. The only one in town (San Diego) that I have found thus fa...

Re: Yoshimitsu blue 2 bunka

Well, my initial thoughts held true. I'd say it's a light middleweight or heavy lightweight. I don't think it's a true gyuto replacement 'cause you can't get high at all on tip. It's kinda become a long nakiri replacement with a more utilitarian tip. Did touch up on stones, and it's just fine. Typic...

I snapped a few before I packed it up for shipping, but they suck. I put less than 5 minutes on it from those photos above.

Re: CCK stainless cleaver

Here's the original posting in part:


Also have a Large CCK Cleaver. It is the same size as this cleaver on the site http://www.chefknivestogo.com/cckcleaver1.html But is it is fully stainless. Don't know what kind of steel it is, but it gets sharp and is thin.

CCK stainless cleaver

Grabbed this back in september lightly used. Large CCK cleaver in stainless. Stock handle. Edge in very good shape. Handle has a bit of varnish removed

Used a few times to try out and is just too tall for me. So catch and release.

$70/obo, CONUS, paypal (add $3 if you don't want to gift).

Re: Tanaka Sekiso B#2 Damascus 240mm Gyuto

Just curious about the requested choil gap. Does this serve a functional purpose or is mostly about aesthetics? Personal preference. The exposed machi is not indicative of shoddy install. It's supposed to be that way. I like a decent gap sp I can get my middle finger in there comfortably. 15mm or so.

Re: Stainless Clad 270 Sujihiki

I have the gyuto. Pretty stiff. Muted feedback. Gets plenty sharp and edge retention is longest for me other than HAP40.

I was getting ready to pull trigger on ebony handle 240 from K&S, but saw this. What's your price?
