No need to worry, they all stay at home or work.
Nice, so where do I send my knives to for you to sharpen them?
Haha that was actually done for my by a mate, I'm not that good yet...
Sweet - a knife thread!
Here's a few of mine.
Yoshikane 270mm Gyuto
Takeda 275mm Yanigiba
Some single edges...
Yoshihiro Yanigiba & Deba
My drawer queen - Shigefusa "Kitaeji" 270mm Yanigiba
Very nice, @Jase - we have similar taste in knives.
I also have a Yoshikane Gyuto (210mm), and a couple of Takeda's - a 240mm Gyuto and a 170mm Banno Bunka.
Also love my Mr Itto's.
My Drawer queen is a 270mm Thomas Gerner hand-forged genuine Damascus camp knife, with a copper pommel and brass guard.
@TomG yes it seems we do!
I love the AS steel in the Takeda's - they are scary sharp! But also a bit delicate! I have a Carter Kuro-Uchi Nakiri which is similarly razor sharp and gets a little more use.
I have admired some Mr Itto's in the past but don't own any unfortunately.
I had to "Google" Thomas Gerner - I would like to own a locally made knife at some stage. I haven't bought any knives for a while now - other interests have taken priority! But I still love a knife with a bit of soul!
Ohhh dear, pretty ...
Lord. A shig kitaeji. Let me guess, you wandered over from kkf didn't you.
Look up mert tansu for kitchen knives. I have a few of his.
Lol... i did a bit of hanging out at kkf a while ago.
Damn I wish you hadn't of pointed me to Mert Tansu! Nice!
Beautiful knives (Mert Tansu). I have quite a compact kitchen, so typically use 210mm, although my Takeda is a 240mm.
You are all a bunch of enablers. Droolworthy.
Look who's talking!
