Re: Your preferred stone progression

Shapton pro 1k and 2k. That is all I keep around my prep station for synthetics these days.

Re: Favorite kitchen scale

I have been through cheap ones at $10-15 for 11 lbs capacity. They break or chew through batteries. I hate when devices use button batteries when AA will do. I have been using the oxo scale for a while. AA batteries, removable SS weighing pan, and remote screen/dock. Typical oxo quality and you buy...

Hmmm..... Pre-move cutlery garage sale coming?

Just thought I'd ask.....
I am unsure at this moment. More likely stones than knives. All of my knives fit in a single 18 pocket bag (with room to spare).

Nice looking knife i wonder how comfortable is it with that handle?
Missed that. I find it comfy. :) Light, well finished but skinny which might be a turnoff for some.

Have you put it to the stones yet? If so how did it go?
I am going to send you a PM as I tend to be long winded and don't want to go off topic here. I will say that I like this knife enough that I will review it after a month or so of use. But the short version is "well enough".

Re: Top Three (Right Now)

Mmh, hard choice. Masamoto KS (250) If I could only have one J knife based on the knives I have owned thus far, this would be it. It just makes me happy to use. I do wish it was taller though. Well balanced, for me, grind that falls between a laser and a light-middleweight. Kono HD2 (235) This knife...

After way too much time and procrastination, I have launched my C II Bladeworks website. In addition to continuing my custom knife and handle work, I will be listing spec blades for sale on the site....the commerce side has all the standard protections. I appreciate the support that the CKTG Commun...

Re: Need advice: Comparing end-grain boards to synthetics

I would be curious too. After protein I lug mine to the sink and hit it with some dish soap/sponge. What ratio of vinegar/water are you using Kit? 50/50 but since getting the farmhouse sink I lug the board over way more often and do it up with soap and water. After I started scraping my boards heav...

Re: cross contamination between stones

I have a slight variation from Ken's that stems from not being overly concerned if I get some higher grit "contamination" on a lower grit stone. So if I was going to use say a sequence of 1k, 2k and 6k stones that I wanted to flatten, I would start with the 6k and get that flat, then follow with th...

Re: Flattening stones

I agree, I have three of the CKTG 140 and like them all. Two full size and one edge pro size. I use one full size for synthetics and one for naturals and the little one is used as a slurry stone.

Re: Sharpening/honing on the fly.

It really depends. I have a set of edge pro sized shapton glass that I keep in a small drawstring bag and can throw in a fishing/hunting/camping bag and have on occasion. Having said that, I've never really had much of an occasion to use them--lol. If I go hunting/fishing I normally go for the day a...

Re: 210 or 240 Gyuto? Can't decide!

Eh, depends. I like something in the 215-235mm x 47-51mm range. The thing is that knives in that range may be classified as a 210 or a 240 so it really depends on the smith and the region the knife is from. But I think it is safe to say that if you are into knives you will enjoy many knives in the 2...

Re: Favorite non-chef bladed implement

My Opinel is probably pretty close to being my favorite! But I have a fair few bladed tools that I got as gifts while growing up that have sentimental value. Practically speaking though the Opinel takes the cake. However I would have to say my Leatherman PST is right there with it. I don't use it da...
