Honyaki's!!!

Wed Aug 07, 2013 4:51 pm

2, 240mm and 1 210mm Blue Honyaki gyuto's arrived today!! One of the 240's is mine, the other 2 Honyaki are going to get custom handles made up and sent back to CKTG.

Honyaki's are a little thicker than other knives, but look at the grinds on these!!! Nice convexing and thin behind the edge should make these incredibly powerful cutters!

Congratulations on the addition, TAZ. That's truly a prized jewel...

Now I gotta figure out what to use for a handle!! That may be on hold for mine though, I ordered 3 sets of scales of Blue Mammoth Tooth, so I may be using that!

Decided to use a set of Blue Mammoth Tooth scales and some really nice blue Burl I picked up today. Pics weren't cooperating, so these are a teaser, I will get better ones tomorrow!

Black paper Micarta end cap to the ferrule, 2 layers of Tooth scales, 1/8" blue G10, more Tooth and G10, Black Paper Micarta end to the ferrule, then the really awesome Blue Burl I got today!

Sharpened it up and used it a little today on Peppers and Pepperoni, cut very smoothly!

Excellent handle Tim! You've really picked up your game of late!

Thanks!! I wanted to do this one way over the top of anything I had done before for myself; this knife is my Birthday Present to me :) It was a bit more complex to glue up and drill the various ferrule pieces and work with that type of approach, so I wanted to figure out a way to do that. I liked the stacked tooth ferrule and I will do them in the future but they are pricey!!

Now Aaron is REALLY going to have a hard time topping this handle!!! LOL.

haha. Think much like the "gunslinger" persona, he's in retirement until the time is right. :) The next handle will be classy and elegant. But don't worry, the gunslinger will return ;)

Sounds like a challenge to me.
