    Touché !
  5. A recent addition to my collection arrived from UK a few days ago.
    8" blade forged from 110WCrV5 (if I'm not mistaken). Somewhere around 62 HRC.


    Thick spine. Thin behind the edge. Rounded where it needs to be rounded.

    Thanks @Dan P. !

    Nice photos Anton. I think I should get on Mr. Prendergast's list before he gets "discovered".

    Beautiful knife, Anton. Severe case of knife envy, right at the moment. :like :jump :cool1
  8. Beautiful handle and photos Anton.
    Steel is indeed 110WCrV5, a name that trips so beautifully off the tongue. Similar to 52100, but with a good dash of tungsten (W) along with the Cr.

    I bought it from JNS during the sales. On of the sharpest OOTB edge I have seen. Far from a laser, it is a substantial knife. I was afraid of the wedging. It is actually very very light for such a blade. Quite fun to use. This is my most "workhouse" knife (so far).

    Got a Forgecraft Forgecraft16.jpg forgecraft14.jpg
  14. Today I picked up an old knife with a new handle. My first japanese chef knife was a Goko 240 and it was the start of my crazy knife collection. That was three years ago and the Goko still holds a special place in my heart. It is a great knife and I thought it deserved something better than a cheap handle with a plastic ferrule. So I let Robin Dalman make a new handle and rehandle it. Birch and reindeer = Beautiful. Thanks Robin! :)

    Here are some quick shots taken with my mobile, so the picture quality is so-so and I had to keep it lores.

  15. Decided to make the photos a bit bigger. Should have used a better camera though...

    Got a Kanemasa 270. JKI had some 240s and I was looking for a 270. JKI had some and I got a deal.

    I'm happy enough with it. I did force a patina nearly first thing but it prepped my wedding rehearsal dinner and the reception food for a hundred straight from the box. Tip needs some love but it still goes through whatever I need it to.

    This is my first knife with a 80/20 or 90/10 bevel. I've sharpened them, just never used them. Noticing it is very much a push to cut and not a push Down to cut.

    Enjoying it greatly. Went through some salmon like nothing. [​IMG]

    Not really a new acquisition, but a reunion:

  18. @XooMG Is that your Fujiwara nakiri that Jon refurbished?

    Yep. Regrind was done elsewhere, though.
