    Just got our first shipment of Ginrei knives... its a new line we're having custom made for us... solid 52100 with a kurouchi finish. If all goes well, we will be able to get them on the site tomorrow, but here's a teaser in the meantime ;)





    Pricing will be from $240-560 depending on size and shape

    Very nice, Jon. Is that the 210 gyuto in the photo?
  3. Not a real fan of kuroichi finish but I have to say the finish on this knife is pretty unique!
  4. +1

    Not normally a fan of hammered or kurouchi finish but the combination and execution on this one looks great!

    Cool stuff. I'd be all for one, but I'm still sore from another deal that didn't work out so well, so I'm scared.

    So, a lot of people have asked about this and I figured it would be time to put it out there.... These are the first knives we are carrying that aren't made in Japan. A very good friend of ours who trained under one of the same guys I train under every year. We worked through the design, grind, etc with him on the development of these. He uses Japanese tools in the making process (Japanese power hammer, water wheels, etc). Because they are made by a Japanese trained smith in the style of knives he learned there, we thought they would be fun for our customers. We've been testing and using prototypes from him for quite a while now and we're pretty happy with how everything turned out. Hope you guys enjoy. We've been waiting for this guy to start knife making for a long time, and a lot of my close friends have heard me say that if I were going to carry American made knives, they would be from this guy.

    They look really nice, Jon. I wish I didn´t live so far away :)
    I´m looking forward to hearing some reviews.
