Re: Harukaze G3 Nashiji Gyuto

It's in my cart right now. I agree, how in the world is all this available at $130. Screw it, I'm pushing the button! Hopefully it will be here by the end of the week. I'll report on it asap

Re: WTS Richmond(Kurosaki) AS Laser 210 Gyuto

There was rumor that Makoto was actually grinding those specific knives (the Richmonds) for Yu for part of the run way back. I wouldn't imagine any of the new stock by either Kurosaki would match because I think they prefer different patterns and designs now overall (and Yu is pretty clear that he ...

Re: Show us your knives!

You have a knife for every day of the month, plus some. I think it's time to sell ;) Seriously though, what are you missing from the Kono collection? Looks like you got em all, say perhaps the Kono 210 bunka

Re: WTS Richmond(Kurosaki) AS Laser 210 Gyuto

That's a really good question, I wondered that, especially since the "Richmond laser" is no longer around and Makoto seems to have picked up the pace on the very same knife.

Re: WTS Masutani VG1 180 Gyuto

I know someone wants this to gift someone at least, or use as a line knife. It's perfect for both of those concepts!

Re: WTS Richmond(Kurosaki) AS Laser 210 Gyuto

Minor scratches visible on right side of blade, very faint. Left side of blade, I think I see a little wearing, but it's so faint you can't see it in the pics.

Richmond(Kurosaki) AS Laser 210 Gyuto - SOLD!

This one really hurts, but again, gotta sell before I purchase. This one is about two years old and has actual hand chiseled kanji, not laser cut. One of the best knives I've used and is the epitome of a "Non-laser laser". I cleaned it up with BKF for the sale. It's been used, but gently and has a g...

WTS Masutani VG1 180 Gyuto

Great little knife and heck of a deal imo. Selling to support another purchase. I just put this through a full progression ending with the Kitayama 8000 and it's got a nice polished hair popping edge to it. I didn't use this knife too much but it did see some action. Specs should be very similar to ...

Gihei B2 210 Gyuto - SOLD!

Had this knife for about a year, used but gently. Only been threw one full progression just recently, otherwise just stopped. Has a patina on the core steel right now, I can polish it up with BKF if you want. Other than those considerations, it's got basically the same specs as the listing on CKTG. ...

Re: Chromax food release? Best food release under $200? Chromax?

I have a Chromax 210 gyuto. I don't find it brittle and performance is fantastic. After using a Takeda, I haven't found anything that has that level of food release. That's not to say that knives that are thinner with more of a flat geometry can't have decent food release. I've used the shibata AS g...

Re: Pro chef egg cracking method - curious

As a pro, I've only ever attempted one in each hand. Works well, every now and then I get a bit of shell, but it beats one at a time time. Stupidest thing I've seen was when I worked at a Holiday inn. The chef thread a case of eggs in a large mixer, shell on, with her whip attachment. He'd whip the ...
