Re: Konosuke MM Blue #2 Passaround

Thanks for the comments Dan. As far as sharpening/edge retention, I think Kevin hit the edge with a Chosera 800 and 3k and that was 3 users before you. That's the only comments I remember as far as sharpening goes. I used the OOTB edge and at the end of the week I just stropped it on leather loaded...

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...
