I have 2 others in the works. Kaneshige and Tojiro are doing them.

Hmmm....

My buying is done, but how about an entry-level, single-bevel deba ($75-125?) in a Richmond line?

I have seen the Ashi Hamano knives in person and they feel, at least to me, like a budget version of the Konosuke HD2 pieces. I think that's a good thing if you can position them at an attractive price point without adding more confusion to the mid-range offerings.

Check out my Richmond Damascus Suji. It's eerily similar to the Yoshikane....


VERY nice!! I hadn't seen that one before. Time to start saving :)

Thanks Mark!

How about a sharpening and repair service. Lots of your competitors have one and also will convert knives to left handed when they are not 50/50 for an extra fee. I bet their is also money to be made on this.

I'm with thyde there.

I'm a lefty and converted my righty Goko to a neutral.... Was a serious amount of work without the right equipment. Learned a lot, but would definitely pay if I had to do it again.

Visit Sharpener's Corner. I'm sure you'll find several more than capable sharpeners willing to take care of all your sharpening needs.

Hinoki cutting boards...

I've been wanting something light yet functional and haven't found a good source that isn't going to cost me a small fortune to get shipped to the US.

Ideally at least 1"/25 mm thick, wouldn't complain about 33 mm, uniform grain, sanded, but otherwise unfinished. I personally would be interested in a fish-for-two-size board (somewhere around 18x36 cm or 21x42 cm??), as well as something big enough for a 240 mm gyuto (12x18" ~ 30x45 cm or so).

While I don't break salmon a lot, there might also be a market for a board of that scale. I know an 11# King or Sockeye doesn't quite fit on an 18" long board. I manage reasonably well, but there is a lot of counter cleaning to do before and after when I do.
