I really enjoy w#2. What knife would you recommend as the best, or at least very very good for W#2?
kiyoshi kato!
Kato felt similar on the stones to me as mazaki, although I have very little experience with both.

Hows the patina on the 240 gyuto?
It’s been kept in check with BKF and Sandflex Super Eraser. I’ve not used it much in favor of Toyama and that in favor of Kato WH - I keep going back to it.

He shouldn't have withdrew it the last time he posted it, I was about to jump all over it. I've bought a couple knives since then and have a couple trips coming up and don't have the extra funds now. :( Quit with the excuses Jeffrey... Says the broke as a joke guy :roll: .

I just don't understand how this is still available. I have a saji ginsan and love it, and this looks like 10x the knife of that.

Re: Steels picky with specific grits.

I didn't care for the gb at first, but I have come to really like it. My 2 cents is it seems to finish at a higher level than other 2ks I tried but also a slower cutter. And I use it as a splash and go. It works great as a final finisher on softer stainless. For some other steels I use it as a secon...

Re: Watanabe Knives

Well I found the Watanabe site interesting... with so many jnats for sell he steers people to synthetics and after trying “thousands of stones” they have settled in on the Kitayama 8000 as a finisher. —- The Kitayama is a good stone but for him it is due to the speed and appropriateness in a produc...

Re: WTS: Mazaki 245mm Gyuto

The “new profile” has a pointier tip, more taper and weighs less. The weight of this one matches old profile. Regardless of weight the older profile has a lower tip than this version. There is more upsweep with this one. I looked at the pic of mine again to see if I could tell anything. Looking at ...

Re: WTS: Mazaki 245mm Gyuto

Are you sure this is the new profile? I was under the impression that all of his new knives were with the new profile, not just for JNS. I still believe this is the new profile as the older profile had a lower tip and more pronounced "beak". I'll double-check with CC. That very well may be the case...

Is this the "New Profile" from JNS?
Yep, this is the newest profile from Mazaki, but from Cleancut.

Re: Steels picky with specific grits.

Is Blue the same as Aogami? I have always wondered about it Yes. White is Shirogami...and folding paper is Origami. :D I noticed :lol: Only issue I have is that sometimes the knives mentioned things like Blue #1 or Blue #2, and some will say Aogami #1 or #2. Aren't they all the same? with different...

This just showed up today, first in awhile. 215 with the new profile? My 245 just showed up yesterday. Haven't had the chance to use it. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Enjoy! Yeah it's the 215. I've got so many oversized 240's I wanted to give something smaller a go, think I'm going to l...
