Re: On what grit/stone do you finish HD2?

My favorite edge comes off a Shapton Pro 1k, followed by a Belgian Blue Coticule - about a 4K grit that is burr free with a bite. You’ve mentioned this before. I have the Belgian blue, use it for straight razors, gonna try it on a knife. —- I usually have it handy and use a coticule bout to generat...

Re: Knife for processing lots of Chickens

Using a 1-2 lb cleaver for doing 100+ chickens a day will give you big arms quick. --- The DP weighs in at just under a pound. Weight can be used as an asset: less muscle is required as the weight of the blade is used to power through the bones... It is amazing to see the skill of men who do this a...

Re: Newest knife

In carbon knives, those made of Aogami Super have some of the best edge retention.

Re: Knife for processing lots of Chickens

I think your current knives are perfect for this application; however, as a change of pace I might suggest a cleaver. I personally use an 8 inch wusthof, 10 inch carbon artifex (no longer in production) or a cheap, heavy cleaver not as nice as the one I linked. https://www.restaurantsupply.com/dext...

Re: Your preferred stone progression

I haven't used any Choseras. I'll get one eventually. I've acquired a Shapton Glass 220, 500 and 400, with a 1K and/or 2K to come. To my surprise I like them better than the pros. I thought they wouldn't feel as nice, but they feel just fine. --- You will like the Choseras, they " feel " better tha...

Re: first real Japanese knife recommendation

Greetings and welcome to the forum.

Start with a gyuto for the most versatility: a stainless clad carbon is recommended.

There is an Anryu 240 gyuto in the classifieds that is a very good deal.

It looks like there are no restrictions now but as recent as a few seasons ago I could not buy new Adidas Copa Mundial boots because they are made from kangaroo uppers. Kalifornia is crazy overboard with restrictions.

Welcome. If you are willing to go up tp 300ish, get the Sugimoto Cleaver #6 and enjoy great performance for many years to come.
