Hey Dan-
When did you pick up the Ashi 180 petty? I've been dying to see how one fits me in-hand.... I might need to stop by your place for a beer soon.

Ben!! I bought it for my wife, but she just loves the Mizuno and this one gets neglected. If you like light, you'll love this little devil. Come over for a beer whenever, you have my number!

(The knife you need to try, though, is the Shi-Han 255. It's magic)

[/quote]...I would have to say the biggest surprise in the bunch was the Mazaki. It can hang with the best of them and I seem to reach for it the most as an everyday knife...

I'm with you on Mazaki. I own three (I've also sold three that didn't quite make the cut). They're all very different knives, with very different profiles and very different grinds, and they are all very top-shelf. One if them (the latest profile from JNS) is by far my most used knife.

So I thought I would post my knife bag collection. These are my everyday work knives and I'm finally happy where I'm at with them. A few beauties and a few beasts.

Hey I recognize that 240! ;) Nice collection. You still have all unique sizes and types so it’s not a full blown addiction yet and there may still be hope for you. It looks like you’re well on the way though :lol:

Excellent variety in style and steels! About another dozen more knives and you can join our J-knives Anonymous Club. ;)

Here's some of my collection, as a home cook I preferred stainless steels and most of my knives are made from AEB-L, Nitro-V (my favorite), SG2, Ginsanko, CPM-154, CPM-20CV, CTS-XHP, M 390 and of course the noob trap VG-10. I have 7 more in the drawer but too lazy to pull out my secret weapons =)

That western handle, bottom row, looks sharp. Who makes it?
Awesome setup, both storage and sharpening

Great looking collection! Love the variety in both handles and blades. Can you comment on why Nitro-V is your favourite? I haven't heard a ton about it. Comparisons to other steels? Cheers!

It just a another version of AEB-L , feel good on the stone for stainless steel(not as good as carbon), I like it at 63 HRC and able to sharpen at a very low angle. Also it's a good steel for the price comparing to CTS-XHP and CPM-20CV.
