  1. Thanks for the positivity Marc.. yes I'm clearly not set on fighting the urge. I know I have more than I would need for the amount of food prep I do but I am totally enjoying having the knives themselves. I will definitely give them some use as well but not buying on a need basis for sure. I will def keep you guys posted as it grows.
    I guess I'm moving along at a good pace Matt. I saw a Shigefusa 210mm nakiri on one of the threads which inspired me to get one. Then I came across the Toyama Noborikoi I figured I'd give it a go. It sure feels hefty in hand and I really like that. I can't wait to cut up some kale and romaine heads with it.

    Mark, sorry I missed this. I only used it for a night before it went in for a re-handle. Now that the handle is finished I will put it through the paces.

    From the one night I used it I really enjoyed it. It is a slightly thicker knife than we are generally used to with J knives. In addition, it has no true flat, just a long gentle curve from heel to tip, albeit a lower tip. As long as you have a slight forward push with your action it cuts well, chopping, not so much. Proteins, most veggies were easy, thicker roots were a bit of a struggle.

    The blade is beautifully crafted and the finish very well done.

    190mm Chinese knife (cleaver)......... Hitachi blue 2 core, 410 stainless san mai. Western (kite style) handle, blue dyed stabilized maple burl.

    If this is not the best cutter I have ever used, it's pretty darn close. Amazing heat treat & edge retention.
    Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.

    IMG_6591.JPG Made this one for myself and has been lots of fun to use. Purple box elder, blue lapis insert, silver carbon fiber twill bolsters. 250mm CPM M4 steel is beyond amazing. There was a stubborn irregularity in the edge at the belly and I struggled to get it to comply before heat treat. I ended up texturizing the whole edge. Rockwell 64.
