Re: Best bang for the buck knife brand?

Im going Kohetsu blue 2 all the way baby! I picked up a 210 for a "line knife" but found myself grabbing it all the time. I thinned mine a tiny bit and jesus christ it drops through product! And it will hold an edge all day... Like all day.... Like 14 hours with my 200 lb frame slamming it into pol...

Re: Yahiko White #2 Hammered 240

Hey guys. Got the knife today. Man this thing is gorgeous. I’ll give it a good workout this week.

First impression, definitely thick! Nice grind. Almost completely even on both sides. Comes to a nice thin edge. The KU is very smooth. Feels like th Takeda KU.

I’ll let y’all know more soon

Re: Best bang for the buck knife brand?

We should t be overlooking the Yoshimitsu Fugen line here. Yes the handle is shit, but you get a great hand-crafted knife in W1, stamped kanji, durable KU, and just all around unique cool offering. IMO, they perform great...well at least the bunka did. Easily slid through plenty of stuff. Much bett...

Re: Affordable S-Grinds?

Maybe I'm sharpening my Takedas incorrectly? I'm a vegetarian also If that makes a difference, my takeda definitely has average food release on things like onions, zucchini, etc. I wouldn't say it's any better than my other blades as far as the release. It's a fantastic knife for sure. Not sure abo...

Re: 180mm bunka recommendation/food release vs laser

I like food release over laseriness, and would not disagree with a Takeda. If you use it right, it will offer cutting ability that is plenty good. If you want full on laser, I’d follow jbart and get a Shibata AS. Two fantastic options, and I can say I’ve used both. Best in class for what they’re bu...

Re: Be nice to dishwashers

You got lots o’ options if your budget goes as high as the ux10! I’d say give him something with character. Nice kanji and aesthetics. My thought would be to get something lasery for sure. It’s gotta get hard doing prep at that age. Good story J

Re: Looking for my next

It seems like the perfect budget “laser”, though I have no experience. Always been interested. I’m sure others will chime in. Seriously though, at that price, just get it. Sell if you don’t like. No harm, no foul ;)

I am looking for some VG-10 and have had no luck does anyone know where to get it? Any help would be appreciated.
Some context might help your query, though you should probably post it on the general discussion page, and not on someone else’s knife rec thread.
