Some day I will take sexy pictures of all knives. ;) But here's most of them in some old photos I had. Pretty basic carbon knives - no customs, no collectibles, not a burl in sight. ;)

Image
Knives from left to right:
  • Shiro Kamo Gyuto 240 mm Aogami #2 (kurouchi)
  • Shiro Kamo Gyuto 240 mm Aogami #2 (damascus)
  • Goko Gyuto 240 mm White #1
  • Akifusa K-Gyuto 240 mm Aogami Super
  • Masakage Shimo Gyuto 240 mm White #2
  • Moritaka Kiritsuke 240 mm Aogami Super (double bevel)
  • Moritaka Sujihiki 240 mm Aogami Super
  • Shiro Kamo Sujihiki 270 mm Aogami #2

Knives from left to right:
  • Shiro Kamo Gyuto 210 mm Aogami #2
  • Akifusa Hakata 170 mm Aogami Super
  • Shiro Kamo Nakiri 165 mm Aogami #2
  • Shiro Kamo Kamagata Usuba 165 mm Aogami #2 (double bevel)

Image
Knives from left to right:
  • Akifusa Petty 120 mm Aogami Super
  • Ikeda Migaki Petty 90 mm White #2
  • Victorinox Petty 120 mm Stainless
  • K-Sabatier Petty 90 mm Stainless

The two stainless pettys are my small "beater knives" used for quick "fire and forget" jobs (i don't have to wipe them immediately after using them) and cutting open plastic wrappings etc. :)

Thanks! :)

Hmm, seems I still got problems making permanent links too images on google drive. Thought I solved it this time. :(

Here's a link to the folder with the pictures:

Well, they are all good knives, but some of my favorites are:

  • Moritaka Kiritsuke 240: But perhaps I like it more is because it was sharpened by a really good sharpener who I bought it from. As I understand it he flattened the bevels a bit. He sharpened it full progression, including jnats. It's scary sharp right now. (No more pictures, sorry)
  • Masakage Shimo Gyuto 240: Feels very nimble despite its length and has a great grind. (More pictures)
  • Akifusa K-Gyuto 240: Sometimes it's great to have a heavy, thicker knife. This one weighs 220 grams and feels unstoppable. (More pictures)
  • Akifusa Hakata 170: A favorite because of its unusual profile. The "triangle" area forming the front part of the knife makes it more useful than with an ordinary santoku tip. (More pictures)
  • Shiro Kamo Nakiri 165: A very thin nakiri with great f&f. I have no laser, but this must be the closest thing I have. (More pictures)
  • Shiro Kamo Kamagata Usuba 165: My tomato killer. Perhaps more like a tall petty with no pointy tip than a nakiri. Great food release. (More pictures)
  • Ikeda Migaki Petty 90: Alright, I haven't had many quality pettys in this size to compare with, but this one is exceptional. Thin, with a great edge and grind. (More pictures)

Beautiful collection!! The Moritaka Kiritsuke caught my eye! The Akifusa Hakata is very nice as well.

Love the freestanding magnetic block for the medium knives. Been thinking of building a magnetic holder and don't know why, but I just had it in my head that it must be something that mounts into the wall. Happy to see a different iteration.

Thanks everyone! :)

Yeah, the magnetic block is very nice, but a bit expensive. Cost me the equivalent to more than 400 bucks but I guess that's what it costs with special wood heat treatment and paying Swedish salaries, not importing everything or using cheap labor. Made by a small company in northern Sweden.

Their outrageously expensive laptop case would be nice if converted to a knife case. ;)

Took some more pictures of the block (some new shigs there as well, santoku 165 & suji 220). It consists of two magnetic blocks, so you can attach knives to both sides. Since I have the block against a wall, I don't have that many knives on the back side. I can get to them by carefully tilting the block forward. Between the blocks there is room for some extra knives to hang, no magnets there. I keep three pettys there, 14 -16 cm long. Can't keep 24 cm blades on the block though, as seen on the last picture, but my 22 cm suji made it.
