Re: Help Mark choose some gear

Dang, I was going to try to turn it into some supernatural samurai blade. I imagine the difference between 15 and 20 degrees would be 1) harder to grind 15 degrees because more metal to take off and 2) the edge wouldn't hold well because (I think) the Chicago Cutlery steel is softer than that in go...

I used angle guides to try to get about a 15 degree angle.

Use a 20 degree angle guide for that and most western knives.
15 degrees is good for the thinner Japanese knives.

Re: Help Mark choose some gear

The Imanishi stones are a good choice. The 400 & 1K benefit from a little slurry for faster cutting action: lightly scrub the stone with the diamond plate until a little slurry is generated, then while leaving the slurry on the surface, proceed with sharpening. I too use the Idahone ceramic rod at a...

Re: Konosuke Fujiyama 210s Gyutos on Deck

Thanks Jeff and Ray. I have been real happy so far and comfortable using these smaller 200mm's. I previously overlooked them but they are of a very handy size: quick and very nimble.

Re: Paralysis by Analysis - Help Choosing 1st (Flat?) Gyuto/Kiritsuke

I have, and love, the Yahiko that you reference. Very flat, good looking, and the edge retention is really good. Nice tip, but you have to take care of it. My wife bent the tip early on. I haven't really noticed any downsides in edge retention compared to my blue #2 nakiri. It has much, much better...

Re: Burr On Burr Off & Burr On again

The physical change is me actually checking to make sure I am forming burrs on the stones that follow the Primary Burr Stone. (PBS) ...

Re: New Gyuto Help (Takeda, Kurosaki, Mokato, Masakage, etc)

...with a lot of thinness on the edge, a nice precise thin tip, fairly low wedging but also something that will allow for less sticking. Almost laser like but just a bit more meat on it on the upper part of the grind. Would really like Aogami Super I have five of the seven knives you referenced and...

Re: Recommendation for 240 gyuto best for Food release and edge.

Whatever you purchase it will serve you well for a while. After you start finding the flaws or perfection a of your new knife, you will find another to try and it will be either better or worse in your hands. All the knives you mention will be a current favorite of several and will have their own s...

Re: Kiyoshi Kato at work

Through my Googlefu I found that Kato passed away in 2010 and his apprentice Keizo Onishi took over the business and it's now called Onishi Seisakusho. Do you have link(s)? Found bits and piece here and there but it is all summed up in one place on this site. https://www.shokunin.com/en/onishi/pen....

Just landed this Konosuke Fujiyama Bunka thanks to the generosity of a friend, edge length is 203mm, heel height is 56mm. I’m really happy about this one.
Wicked! What era is this from?
I last saw those on CKTG about five years ago.
