Possible bargain!

I recently ordered this Kanetsune 210mm gyuto. The price SMKW offers is roughly half the best price I've ever seen on this knife! The few initial reports indicate this knife is pretty darned close to a Shun for right around 1/2 the money- if this is so we're talking a bargain!

For the price you get V-Gold 10 steel clad with 33 layers of Stainless Damascus steel. They claim the hagane is Rockwell C 60+. I purchased the 210mm for $60 with free shipping!

I'll keep you posted!

Looks very good. Might be time to invest in those DMT bench hones I've been wanting to round out the order...for the good of the economy, I mean.

I think it's a sale. At those prices I wouldn't wait- you snooze you lose!

There's an aphorism about hot iron and timely striking that seems entirely relevant to this. I think I might have to act on that maxim...

Well said! I might choose something besides the DMT benchstones- think "waterstones."

Definitely for finishing. I usually use diamonds for rebeveling though.

Yeah, I agree that can work well. I sometimes start with my DMT Dia-Sharp XX8 if a knife is reeallly bad.
