CGuarin1987-

First of all, excellent year.

I really like your choice to do the knife angles in a slow rotation video rather than the stills from the Kanehiro vid. But either way, thank you again for really SHOWING us the knife.

May I ask, which do you prefer from the two Nashiji Gyutos:

Kanehiro
Or
Yuki

I realize the steels are different and each hold their own characteristics, but which did you like better as a whole?

Thanks again for the videos

Fantastic! I'm really impressed with your production skills on top of your knife skills.

That knife sure performs well out of the box - seems very sharp.

Nice demo dude!

Thanks guys! Trying to change things up to keep the creative juices flowing.

MowgFace - Haven't spend too much time with either knife, but based on the short time I've used them I prefer the Yuki. Thinner, sharper OOTB (didn't touch-up either one), has a SILKY smooth handle, is a smoother rocker. On top of that, the convex is done slightly better as it transitions up the blade. They both have the same finish, but the Yuki is smoother. The Kanehiro seems to be built a lot tougher though. Haven't used them enough to judge steel characteristics, but I'm sure they'll both satisfy expectations. At this level of craftsmanship, the difference is steel characteristics aren't a whole lot different IMO, but maybe someone more knowledgeable can give you a better view on that.

Sukenari ZDP, Masakage Kioshi & Takamura SG2 videos coming soon.

I'm looking forward to the Takamura. That knife really impressed me when I played with it.

Chipzaroy:
Thanks! Yes, the Kono is mine. I am considering putting it in the classifieds though. Made it's way out of the rotation a while ago. We'll see...
