Looking to buy a Kajiwara Damascus suji preferably in 300mm but would go for a 270 as well. Hit me up if you have one you want to move.

Re: 210 Gyuto, Home cook, I think this is what I need/want

Sekiso can be quite reactive. If you are not in the habit of wiping down your knife every time you put it down, you might want to pass on this one for now. The blue nashiji is a completely different grind from the sekiso but I like them both very much. I haven't used the VG-10 so I can't comment on ...

Yahiko Sanjo white 2 nashiji 240 gyuto

I'm thinking about sponsoring a passaround of the Yahiko Sanjo white 2 Nashiji 250mm gyuto if anyone is interested. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/yawh2kunagy2.html The hammered version from the same smith was very well regarded when it went on passaround and is currently sold out. This one looks to...

Re: stone recommendations for axe sharpening

Do you have access to a belt grinder? A slack belt will follow the convex and do quick work removing small chips. I refine the edge with a soft aoto and it will easily shave.

Re: TS prof

A friend of mine just got this setup and demonstrated it for me. It is very well made, well engineered, and solid (more so than KME and edgepro). Practically, it will perform no differently than the others and has exactly the same pros and cons as any guided system. I don't use guided systems, so ta...

Worth it just to hard boil eggs. The freshest eggs from my backyard chickens fall out of the shell.

My top 2 kitchen gadget purchases in the last 5 years:

1. Sous vide
2. Instapot

Re: Sharpening - edge retention

Board material is a factor. Sharpening technique is a factor. Primary bevel angle is a factor. Steel type is a factor. Heat treat is a factor. Cutting style is a factor. If you had good success with with a couple of knives but not another, I would lean toward heat treat being a potential problem. Si...

Re: Konosuke MM Blue #2 Passaround

Well, I got Kevin's MM while I had the passaround MM and the passaround Fuji. My thoughts on these were similar to some, and I was thinking "if this MM were a little taller, I think I would prefer it over the Fuji". That is exactly what Kevin's MM is. It is a bit heavier than the fuji while being ve...

Looking to trade this Mazaki / Yahiko hairline 240 gyuto. This is the same knife I sent on passaround a while back. Since then, I have thinned it lightly on the left side to give it better performance while maintaining the food release characteristics (righty bias). I also did further polishing on t...
