That is impressive by anyone's standards!
Thanks Ray! I, all too often, get caught up in the... I need to have XXXXXX (whatever X is) to get my collection to be more desirable. In hindsight, my set is LIGHT YEARS better than what I had two years ago when it was just Henckels & Messermeister.
Quit being so modest Garrick, that is a collection to envy! :ugeek:

No I haven't Dan. I've been meaning to get to that but I've been crazy busy lately. I can't get the wife out of the house either so she doesn't see all my hiding places! :D Gonna need ladders and several tools to find them all. :P

I'll do my best to get them posted by the weekend.

Two questions, what is the 9th chef knife from the top and what is the orange handled yangi?
The 9th from the top is a Tim Johnson custom (highly recommended) the yanigiba is a Yoshikazu Ikeda special. Here is the description from the seller in Japan:


"Yes,I think that Ikeda is worth the higher price.He used old blue steel manufactured in 1953 for this yanagiba.

It is a little durable than modern blue steel but as easy to sharpen as white steel.So this blue steel was very popular.But Hitachi no longer manufactures this blue steel because of the cost...

So this yanagiba is more expensive than the Kasahara suminagashi"
That Yanagiba is super special! :mrgreen:

You crack me up, Jeff :lol:
Of all the folks I missed in that Chicago get-together, I wish I got to see who you are :D
I'm looking forward to seeing the collection. I expect it is proportionate to the number of posts, yes?

Hi all,

Might as well jump in here.
No fancy collection, just a few dialed-in home tools...
Really nice, thanks for sharing.

JB, speaking of desirable... I know there are a ton in your collection that need to be shown! Starting un-hiding them piece by piece. I've already gotten in trouble with the wife after I posted my picture to Instagram. I should have known better but I'm not a smart man.

I'm wanting to concentrate more on handles this year, less on knives that I don't need...although there are three knives I have an eye on right now. :D I only have custom handles on a couple of my many knives. I have to many knives with nice stock handles that i like but it's time to start replacing all the Ho wood handles.

This thread reminds me an old Chuck Klosterman line:

Well here they finally are, as promised. What's in the arsenal right now. Not nearly as impressive as
I'm sure many of you would have thought. Sorry for the crappy pictures.
