It would take two of the boards to make up enough for my kitchen space. It is awesome and has that wonderful Hinoki smell. But my 165mm Nakiri barely fits on this thing. No big deal thanks to Mark and CKTG customer service.I just have to wrap it up and put it back in the mail.

The Teruyasu Fujiwara is also a bit of a mixed bag. The blade is great. F+F is not what I expected after everyone's glowing reviews. The blade is set in the handle a bit crooked, and there is a big (read, huge) gob of epoxy around the machi and ferrule. I'm definitely surprised. I don't love Ho wood anyway. Maybe this one can go to Taz too with my Gokos when I send them?

Surprised to hear this Dan, the F&F on my petty was near perfect. I guess you must have got a Friday knife.

Haha, that could well be possible. I like the expression. I am willing to fix it myself, it will help me to actually get to know the knife anyway. It has a personality to it. So far, it cuts like an animal. Definitely bumping the gyuto up on my "must have" list

I've almost bought the 210 about a dozen times in the last couple weeks but keep stopping myself.

Here are some photos of the small Wasabi board that Mark is offering at a "Try Me Price"
My wife LOVES IT! She says it is a perfect size for a lot of small tasks. It does not take up a lot of counter space, so we can leave it out where it is handy.
What I like is this board is one solid piece of wood. It is very dense. I gave it a very light coat of mineral oil/beeswax mixture which explains the slight tint the board has. Out of the box it is almost white. I would rather have mineral oil staining, then food staining the board.

Guys, I bought the SS size after a fail with the lrg and I have to say, you can totally taste the wood on the ingredient, that is crazy awesome. I dont mind. It is actually somewhat inspiring.
