Re: 15+ inch honing Steel

I've never see one over 14", I'd be very surprised if you will find one longer.

Re: Prototype Gyuto. 200mm

Love the rustic look and the taller profile Dakota! It does look like it would benefit a lot with more thinning behind the edge. I'm a big fan of knives that are a little thick at the spine(3+mm) but get real thin behind the edge. Generally gives a confident feel with excellent performance. Looking ...

I don't begrudge Mark and Sue in any way! He's doing what he feels is in the best interest of everyone and his business.
I was just expressing a personal opinion, nothing more. Not trying speak for the majority or down to Mark.

Re: Marko Tsourkan Knives

Are these going to be the Mizuno style convex grind he's been trying to perfect? He's a really thoughtful and meticulous knifemaker and it'll be cool to see him on the site in addition to some of the other western makers that are semi common here (like Randy Haas and Butch Harner). We're actually d...

Re: Youtube knife/sharpening/jk porn

I mostly flip but do on occasion switch hands given the task at hand. I'm definitively more consistent with flipping though for general sharpening.

Re: What can I expect from a hairline crack in a stone?

You are correct Kit and I'm thinking this might have been one of the changes with some of their stones back when they "improved" them and changed the original names. It's been awhile since I've been on the Naniwa site, looks like I need to go back and research changes to the stone line ups.

Re: What can I expect from a hairline crack in a stone?

...Was your Naniwa a soaker? ... Naniwa does not make soaking stones, they are all splash-n-go because most have a magnesium binder that degrades in water. They don't recommend soaking any of their stones. Several people soak the Naniwa Aotoshi 2K Green Brick before using and get away with but it's...

Re: CKTG Walnut/Maple Handles

One downfall to it is that it will cure in the bottle over time once opened. You can thin it with mineral spirits and it slows the curing time. When mine starts to seem like it's thickening up I put a little mineral spirits in it and give it a good shake. My bottle is over two years old and still g...

Re: CKTG Walnut/Maple Handles

Tru-Oil dries clear and doesn't yellow over time either. It does enhance colors and makes them more brilliant though YMMV depending on the wood. That is part of what makes it a popular choice for a finish. My Koishi had Tru-Oil on the handle when I did my pass around and several people raved over it...

Re: Any reformed smokers?

I smoked for nearly 25 years, well over half my life at the time I quit. After several failed attempts at quitting cold turkey I did like Jason. I weened myself slowly over several months until I was down to just a few a day and now have been smoke free for 10 years. It's much easier to quit when yo...
