Thank you Mark.

I was curious to know if the Konosuke Fujiyama Blue #2 series is harder to sharpen then say a Takeda. I picked up on some of the reviewers discussions of a “box edge”. What exactly are they referring to?

Also, from the knife photo it appears that the bottom front tip of the Konosuke Fujiyama Blue #2 has less of a radius than some other Nakiris’. I would think a larger radius would be easier to “rock” for say when going through some vegies. Is the photo true to the knife form, at the bottom front tip, understanding the slight variations of a fine handmade knife. Thoughts?


Joined the forum last week so I guess I can start bouncing questions in there as well. Is that your preferred method of communication?

BTW: Just received a Takeda Banno Funayuki and a Honesuki from CKTG. These are awesome works of art and machinery. I’ll post a review after I use them some more. Your business site is great in being able to connect us with great products like these. The videos (yours and others) are great and add a whole other element. Keep up the good work. Now just get those Pro-Shapton 1k stones in. J


Thanks again.

Jim

Hi Jim,

hahaha at first I had no idea what box edge meant but after reading the review in context they were referring to the out of the box edge or factory edge as it's more commonly called.

Yes the forum was started so I could offer customers not only my opinion but also open it up to my best customers to help you get what you want. It's been one of the better things we've done to add value to the site to date. So yes please use this forum. It helps others when the ready good questions and answers.

I'm really glad you like Shosui's knvies. He's a great blacksmith and makes some excellent knives.

The Shaptons should be here any day now. They ran out which is why we ran out.

Mark
