Re: Edge pro + Finger Stones?

I suppose you could flatten your blade road with a guided system if your system will achieve an acute enough an angle. I doubt that this is do-able or desireable. Really what you are trying to achieve is a reduction in scratch pattern in a progression to a desired polish. You would finish this on a ...

Re: WTS: Konosuke MM Blue #2 240mm Gyuto

Well, I currently am on passaround for the MM and the FM. The MM I am using is a little shorter at the heel than the FM and I found myself thinking, if the MM were a little bit taller, i think I prefer the grind over the FM. Ashy's sample is taller than the FM I'm currently testing, so I had to at l...

Re: Konosuke MM Blue #2 Passaround

The knife is now in my posession and in perfect condition. I, coincidentally, nor not so coincidentally, also have the FM on passaround. I hope to put both through a workout this weekend and make some comparisons.

Re: Black Friday/Cyber Monday Support Group

I've been looking hard, but I haven't found anything I had to have. I guess I'm getting picky. I would definately jump all over that Toyama 270 if I didnt already have one.

Maybe I can buy some of your cast aways that are surely comming.

Re: Stroping with water stones

Using dry does give a different result than wet. I often like stopping on a dry Kitayama 8k. It gives a bit more tooth compared to using it wet. It is a nice, mud free, quick touch up.

I've not been keeping up with the changes in the fuji line. How is this one different? Is it different enough to try it if I didn't care for the previous version?
It should be different enough jdavid imo.
O.k. then. I'll join if there is room and you'll have me.

Re: Uneven edge bevels

It could be an inconsistent grind on the blade road. If this is the case, you can be doing everything correctly and see what you are describing. This is not at all uncommon and isn't a problem unless you can't live with it. The "fix" would be thinning the knife to even out the grind on the blade roa...
