I have a pretty good sized list of restaurants that I give to visiting friends and family. I can send that to anyone that wants it as well.

California is our number 1 state for revenue so the longer they don't require it the better for us and our customers.

Re: Nubatama 6k Platinum review

Are the ridges a result of a diamond plate flattening?

It looks like it loads up quite a bit; can you show the stone after use and a rinse?

Is that price right? $170 USD?

Re: Mazaki Watanabe comparison

I have a JNS Mazaki 240, not a new style and though it is smaller compared to the Watanabe it feels nimbler and is an overall better cutter. I have been curious how a new style Mazaki might compare to the older model.

Re: Mazaki Watanabe comparison

I have a Mazaki 240 (the formerly Yahiko one) from here. I’ve been eyeing a Watanabe Pro 240 as my next acquisition. Anyone have or used both and can offer some direct comparison comments? I gather the steel and hardness and whatnot are different, but they look pretty similar to me otherwise based ...

Mine is Japanese of course: Mac MK-40 This is a unique paring knife that was designed for many purposes. It functions as a normal paring knife but has an extra-thin (~1.0mm) blade which makes it flexible for spreading butter and jam. The blunted tip fits nicely in the corners of jars for scooping ou...

It varies due to a 1mm steel glued to a 10mm aluminum plate but measured less than .04mm...wouldn't make a noticeable difference on a rubbing block I'd think. ref. http://www.leevalley.com/US/Wood/page.aspx?p=70346&cat=1,43072 The diamonds are electro-bonded to a stainless-steel sheet that is mounte...

Re: Sharpening Aogami Super

The thing about using a coarser stone (e.g 150) is that they are messy, have a tendency of scratching up the blade face, are thirsty, dish fast and then you need an even coarser stone to flatten them...just use a diamond plate. Alternatively I use https://smile.amazon.com/stores/node/13664526011?_en...

Carry a blade only of legal size within your state to avoid unnecessary hassles with police, even if used in self defense.

Re: WTS Saji Rainbow B#2 Damascus Gyuto 240mm Like New

Understood, the Kato knives are some of my favorites.

I like the Zero! Very good performance, on par with the best out of Takefu Village; it reminds me a cross between an Anryu and Kurosaki. The fit and finish is also top notch.
