Western style Japanese Chef Knife bolster

IMG_2718

The picture of the chef knife is Ikkanshi Tadatsuna (all Ikkanshi Tadatsuna western handle knives are made the same way), and it is one body from the tip to the end of the handle.

The bolster is normally welded, but this one is not welded. It prevents to be over 1000 centigrade again by sparks.

It is also clean looking and no sanding marks or welding marks around the bolster.

There is the way to put together the handle and blade by welded.

Tesshu Mizu Honyaki Wa Gyuto 240mm white II steel blades w/ Mt. Fuji Hammon made by Mr. Shiraki, Kenichi

The top one is Mt. Fuji Hammon version

The bottom one is normal wavy hammon version

They have still laminated plastic sealer that need to remove by lacquer thinner.

I should take some pictures for better shots, but I do not want to give scratches on the mirror finish blade, so I have to save the sealer until install the handle.  After removed the sealer, it should be much better looking.
