Went into a local knife store just to shoot the shit and get a second opinion on some product. The store in question is Tosho knife arts in Toronto.

After a while they showed me their new pride and joy, a kitchen knife made by the sword maker Hiromune Takaba.

This knife is made with sword steel, so tamahagane. They also had a chunk of the steel on hand which is wicked cool.

The finish is 3D by all means of the word. It has ridges and levels and is outstanding to look at. Not sure if I would ever take this thing near food. The finish would probably create a ton of drag.

They had a cleaner piece that might belong near produce :)

The picture don't do the knives justice, they are crazy beautiful in person

Similar(?) gyuto and petty for $1,150 and $900, respectively:

The finish in the pictures larry linked to have the look of peeling paint on crumbling walls in those pictures of decaying urbanscapes that are becoming popular. It is a really...haunting effect.

I didn't personally get to look at those ones, as I was really focused on the gyuto.

But I did get to look at another petty. They are all so very different, the finish even when the knife is made using the same batch of steel, same timing, same clay bake. It's crazy how different they are.

I would have loved to get some choil shots, excellent grind.

Thanks for sharing Luna.
Considering the price a sword would go for, you may consider a knife "cheap"
