Re: Replacement/upgrade for damaged santoku

I'm a fan of the anryu AS but it seems to be out of stock, lots of santokus look to be out of stock right now on CKTG, unfortunately

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:

Re: Sit down knife

maybe a 180 santoku would fit. There are a bunch of 165-180mms in your price range. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/wahasa.html

Re: Worried about my new knife

I've had boxes go all around the US for a two week trip before getting to me. It probably ended up on the wrong truck at some point

if they are rocking, I would get them something in full stainless rather than carbon steel just to avoid any possible problems with chipping

Re: Stones for PM edc folders

Hey, welcome! I've thought about getting a folder recently since lots of my friends have EDCs, but don't know much about em. you have a solid collection going already. The shapton glass will definitely do the job, same with the choseras and shapton pros, all of which are hard stones, and cut quickly...

Re: Breaking down whole fish

I agree that if you can only get one knife for those jobs, a mioroshi deba makes the most sense. Otherwise a regular deva, and a suji would be great

Re: Naniwa vs Shapton stones.

Any of them will do just fine, especially with such soft steels. Either will do fine with harder steels too. I agree with Isboogy, just get a low grit(300-400) and a mid range (1-2k) for now with your current softer steel setup. If you are set on getting a full set, I'd prob say shapton pro for now ...

Here’s some, not all of my dried pepper hoarding. If anyone want a blend of ground hot peppers, let me know. https://i.imgur.com/MTXgu0o.jpg I'll take you up on that too, haha. I've been wanting to get into the chili game more seriously, including some fermented goodies. Maybe some cool seeds I cou...

Re: Bots and buying rare knives

Konosuke Fujiyama Wide Bevel. It is rare because the original Fujiyama sharpener (Morihiro) has not been working on these knives recently and when he does they are released in very limited quantities...like 3 or 4! They are highly regarded and sought after because of the wonderful grinds and high l...
