Re: Favorite stones

I've been through alot of synthetic stones and have kept very few. Here is my entire list. Atoma 140 King deluxe 300 DMT 400 SG1000 AI 2K Kitayama 8k Since these are all I have held on to after going through dozens, i guess you could call them my favorites. I use them only to get my knives to the po...

Re: Show us your new knife!

A few recent additions. The first two I've had a while and just got around to re-handling them. The third is yet another addition to my growing collection of Sanjo made knives, the recently discontinued Itinomonn. So far, I like it. https://i.imgur.com/NUrrv9G.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Yfd4GR7.jpg LO...

I'll be in for a gyuto, when do we expect these? It's been an expensive month with taxes and such.

Re: Any one and done solutions for splash and go?

If I could only have 1 stone, I think it would be the AI2000 from Watanabe. Splash and go, super fast, awesome working edge, and great feedback.

Re: When to remove a burr

Also, if you are grinding away enough on each stone in the progression to raise a new burr, you are losing the characteristics of the previous stone. Sometimes this is desireable, often it is not (for me anyway). It just depends on what kind of edge you are looking for.

Re: When to remove a burr

1. O.k. 2. O.k. 3. Not so much. I have used the first two methods with good success, but for a while now, I usually don't use a strop and de-burr on each stone in the progression. With much practice, I can de-burr reliably on 1k and above. Below that, I find it difficult to completely de-burr, maybe...

Re: My most practical "finishing" stone

I pandered too long and did not pick up the one that Watanabe had that was HS 39 and he compared to a 5-6k stone. I don't recall who did get it but I believe it was a regular. I bet that would have been one hell of an aoto but again, probably not near as versatile. Still would have loved to have tr...

Nice, I love working on these old things. I will throw a handle on it if you want. Been awhile since I have done one and I enjoy working on older things. I may have some scales big enough. Shoot me a PM if you want.
I think I will take you up on this offer, Matt. Thanks.

Re: Finding Kato or "something similar"

I have yet to try a honyaki gyuto so I cannot compare the Kato to any one of them. I must say I am intrigued by the love of these honyakis amongst many of the members here. People who's impressions I trust very much. But for me, the Kato occupies a rarified place in my humble collection. It trounce...
