Re: Show us your new knife!

Great looking knife Brett. ...Nothing faded about the kanji on this one ! That's one of the first things I noticed about that knife. It's been somewhat disappointing seeing how the kanji has been ground thin on most of the Fujis over the last year or two. For me, as vain as it might be, the kanji is...

Re: Removing patina and polishing masamoto ks

A diamond spray or paste from 3-6 microns and a piece or block of felt is the best method I've found.

Re: Konosuke Fujiyama b2 240 Newtype

I'm hosting the MM but would love to try the Fuji too for comparison reasons. Might just buy the MM and forget about the Fuji for now. Things were delayed and I won't receive the MM until Tuesday. Keeping the knife for one week and members paying their own shipping cost when finished with their wee...

Related: For those of us who are not too handy, is there any place where we can get a saya made? In particular, I broke a saya for a 130mm petty -- folks seem to stock 120mm and 150mm, but I cannot find 130mm anywhere....
Most of the handle makers make sayas too.

Yes I think that Mark encouraged them to produce more and he told them that he would increase the price (I remember that from a post a while back)...

Re: Konosuke Blue #2 Fujiyama 240mm gyuto

PS all the additional proceeds over the standard price from the Ebay sale are going to Second Harvest Food Bank. We’ve been contributing them for over a decade and they do good work distributing food to most of the food banks around the state of Wisconsin. This might be a good way to raise money fo...

This might not be "news" but I noticed that 9/10 of the HD2 lineup are in stock. Is it because so many more have been made, or because everyone already owns one? (I'm guessing its a combination of both)
Because everyone is trying to get a Fujiyama. :D

This is getting ridiculous. You’re just gonna make up the rules as you go? Are you planning on sharing the extra money with the blacksmith?

I don't want to get beat up on the phone and by email anymore. It's a buzz kill. This way it's very simple. High price gets the knife. I can totally understand your frustration. May as well just put them all up on the web page flip the switch and be done with it. Whoever gets them gets them. Many o...
