When the word "behind" is clearly an adjective and not a noun.

You mean to tell me that when someone shouts "Hot! Behind!", you don't say "thanks, I've been working out"?

Re: Advice needed on ceramic sharpening rods

I like them both, black rod seems to be more aggressive to me, works faster and leaves more bite. Idahone feels a little more silky smooth. I like both but for German knives I might go with the black rod.

Re: How to take care of a KU finish

Moritakas also have a pretty thin kurouchi that tends to come off relatively easily, I think with these thinner kurouchi finishes you can extend their lives by not using anything abrasive when cleaning. Also, if you have to use bar keepers friend to clean up the edge or blade road, it would be a goo...

If the juice or flavored liquid does not naturally contain calcium, Calcium Lactate or Calcium Lactate Gluconate is added. There is also a variation of this technique, Frozen Reve...

I think one of the most important things that go towards making one a better cook / chef is the willingness to try new foods. If the foods you eat are narrow, so are your horizons for making good recipes.

Re: Ebony Handle installer?

I love the pictures of their handles and sayas, ^^^^

Personally, I can vouch for Cody Paul (thegingerninja) for handles and sayas.
Additionally, I don't own one but have seen/felt a handle from gopherbroke (way wicked woodworkz) and a saya from Joshigon (wabi-Sabi woodworks), both seemed very nice.
