Re: Newbie to sharpening, wondering if I should practice first and then take a class

The guys at Bernal have a great class. I would recommend learning the basic concepts and trying a little yourself before going in. It will accelerate your learning and understanding much more than going in blind or with just surface knowledge. Personally, I don't think you need a class, but if you a...

WTB: Takeda 240mm gyuto (Classic, NAS)

Hey guys,
I've been wanting to try a takeda for a couple years now. Interested in both the regular and taller sasanohas(53+mm). Don't really care about NAS or AS. I'm located in CA, USA. A Saya would be a big plus as well!

Cheers!

Re: Sharpening Stones

Lots of pros find 3-5k the sweet spot for sharpness and toothiness/bite for an edge. I only really go up to or past 8k for single bevels. 8k and overstropping on your .5um strop can refine the edge too much and make it harder to cut waxy things like tomatoes

Re: My fault or flaw in metal?

It is definitely fixable, it would become a short chef/gyuto or petty though. Reach out to local sharpeners to get it reprofiled if you want to save it. If you just want to replace it, feel free to send it my way :mrgreen:
