Hey guys- I was wondering if anyone has bought or held this new kohetsu. It looks pretty mean. I'm not even in the market for another knife but A) I don't have a kiritsuke style knife yet or B) have a R2 steel knife. The etching the choir the handle all look really well done.

They just hit the site so I don't think anyone has tried them yet besides Sue and I. Shiba sent me one this summer and we've been using it on and off since. I think they'll be popular once people try them.

The Bunka looks awesome, if it performs as well as it looks, they will be popular indeed.

Mark- do you find the heat treat/ steel quality as good as the migaki?

I've got one of the Bunkas on the way. I'll try my best to give you any feedback after it arrives.

For those that have no idea what is being discussed.

(It took me a few minutes and I'm familiar with the CKtG website.)

That whole "kiritsuke" profile just does not work for me, but that's me.

FYI, Kotetsu not Kohetsu.

I'm intrigued. It'll be interesting to see someone compare this to the Kono HD2 Kiritsuke-Gyuto.

Hey Mark, I read on his site that he puts a rough finish to help with non stick properties. Did you notice this the little bit you did use it or can you feel it on the blade?

Smokie, good catch. That won't be confusing at all :-). I'll probably need 5 takes to get that right on the videos. I'll be saying 'Kohetsu....dammit, start over...".
