Limpet's knives

Post by limpet » Fri Oct 27, 2017 2:38 pm

My thread on the old forum: http://www.chefknivestogoforum.com/limp ... t7368.html

I post a lot of photos of my knives on my Instagram account, but I've decided to start posting collection photos here as well. Well, embed IG posts, that is. So I'm going to spam this thread at first with old photos starting at the beginning of 2017.

Feel free to ask any questions about my knives, in this thread or via PM.

That's it. The last photo was taken today. I decided to only post photos with at least three knives in them. ;)

Not to your level yet in terms of quantity, but on my way. Unless she catches me! I am still at the "Is that a new knife stage" not the "Oh hell, another one?" stage yet. LOL

How do you like the Hiromoto? Hell of a good price for a Honyaki but I don't hear much about them and what I have heard has been mixed.

Hey Limpet thanks for doing this.

I love that magnetic vertical knife block. Never seen anything like that. Where'd you get it?

Just hang in there! ;) As my kitchen cabinet suggests, I have no girlfriend, but the big problem is storage. :)

Yup, it's mixed, as you can read in my post (and some comments from others) I did yesterday on IG.

I presume you mean the striped one standing on the counter? It was made by a small company called Wood of Sweden, but the seem to be out of business now. Magnetic on both sides and in the middle you can let smaller knives hang straight down between the blocks of wood. Here are some old pictures.



Similar blocks come and go, but I've never seen the construction with space in the middle. I know Piotr The Bear makes magnetic blocks and maybe he could make a custom with this construction?

Beautiful collection Limpet. One of my favorites is your heavily swept hammered bunka in the 10th photo from the top. I don't recall ever seeing anything like it. Looks wicked. Almost like a scimitar. Do you use it much?

Well, I use it. I've got too many knives to use any single one of them "much". ;) It's the Akifusa AS Hakata 170 made by Masami Asai who passed away a couple of years ago. It's a fun little knife that looks bigger than it really is on that photo. I recently compared to another hakata made by Hinoura and posted about it twice on IG, so you can read more about it there.
