Just received my first 2 new Japanese knives from CKTG. Very fast delivery (FREE). Ordered on the 31st of July...arrived today (4th of Aug). Well packed.

Initial impressions:

1. Tojiro DP 170mm Garasuke: Good build quality for a $100 knife. Hefty for a knife this size. Weighs in at around 8oz.. Handle felt fine in my "medium" sized hands in a pinch grip. Don't see why some claimed the handle feels "too square" (though, they were talking about a gyuto). Sliced through paper easily and cleanly (OOTB sharpness). Has a sort of "single bevel" edge (one edge convex and the other flat). Will be interesting to see how sharp it will feel and perform once I buy water stones/strop.

2. Konosuke Fujiyama 180mm Nakiri: Very nice fit/finish. Handle seems larger than I expected though not uncomfortable. The paper saya (included in the box) that is around the blade had some "paper dust" on the blade. Bought a Kono wood saya (includes black pin) nicely. Quickly ran my finger over the cutting edge of the blade. Felt more than sharp enough that I didn't bother bouncing my finger on the edge. :) Didn't get to sacrifice any paper to it yet. I'm sure it will cut through it easily w/ OOTB sharpness.

Will probably post again later when I actually put them to use.

Boning: Tojiro DP 170mm Garasuke (VG10)
Gyuto: MAC Pro 200mm (hi-carb/chrom/Moly)
Nakiri: Konosuke Fujiwara 180mm (W#2)

Can't wait to hear how you like the Kono Fujiyama! They look like great knives.
