Re: Looking for a new knife

How about a saji?:)
Or go up a little bit and get a nubatama black steel :p

Re: Looking for a stainless clad carbon gyuto

Thank you kind sir jsgillis. Sorry I haven't been around contributing much. Our previous chats and banter has resulted in me still loving my TF Santoku :) After I sharpened it, just a quick touch up on natural resulted in a crazy wicked edge. His steel is voodoo magic man. Haha. And just like your r...

Re: Santoku recommendation

@steveG wonderful insights and recommendations as always! Yeah jsgillis is another big fan of the kanehiros. If not for the xhp petties of butch, making the decision very tough for me, I would have pulled the trigger on one of those kanehiros long ago already. :) Yeah it's a pity the TFs are so inco...

Re: Santoku recommendation

Hope I don't get too much heat for this, but initially after I did my research and asking around I eventually went with my gut and got myself a teruyasu Fujiwara santoku. which has been my workhorse for a year now and I'm still loving it. Yes the fit n finish is not all that consistent and clinical ...

Straight razor - rescaled and honed shave ready

I got this hart steel straight a little while back but it arrived in less than shave ready condition. Much thanks to butch who helped me to fix the rough grind, fix the wonky bevel edge, and rescale it as well. So it is effectively a hart customized by butch now:) Have tried to get into straight sha...

How long would a 5/8 quarter ground straight go before the grind needs "thinning"?

So I saw the recent sale on classic shaving for hart steel straights razors and made the plunge into the world of straights from my current de setup. Got me a 5/8 quarter hollow grind with round tip. (Also interesting that ever since this forum moved over the shaving threads have all died. :( Where ...

How much of a jump is it going from a DE to a straight?

Hi guys! I know this topic was likely covered in some great detail over at the old forums. But I never previously joined in those discussions so thought maybe I'd ask this over here. I only started using a DE razor (custom handle with a muhle straight bar R89 head. Currently using either kai or merk...
