Re: Kohetsu 800 on Closeout

Bought another one. Love these stones. And the discount? Worth it.

If the crack concerns you, laquer the sides and bottom. I have stones with slight cracks laquered. And IF it splits you just have 2 thinner stones. 😀

I'm with Ray. 3% shouldn't break a sale. If you need the clams just price adjust. Easy peasy. 😀

Re: Matsubara Ginsan Damascus

Finally got mine in. Love the looks but my copy was a lil lacking in the handle dept. No big deal for me since I make handles ( for every knife I own :) ) Looks like it wasn't installed all the way in or they missed finishing the "machi" grinding. Then the glue was messy to say the least. F&F was ac...

Re: New home

I'm thinking I like that even better than my wife's "frame in the wall" idea. Very nice looking!

Re: How NOT to ship a knife!

Agreed: Sellers like that should be outed. As bad as getting stones in nothing more than a shoebox. Disrespect for the buyer is exactly what I said when I got burned. Well, until I got my $$ back. I felt no remorse whatsoever for the seller.

No doubt in you and yours Mark! Never had it happen so had to share. I’m giggling about it now. 😀

USPS Brain Fart

EVERY time I order from Mark it goes something like this: Find knife, order said knife, knife shows up in 3 days. MAX! ( a lot of times 2 days but that depends on where I am at the time. ) And then there's this time. Heading to the lake for a week so great! Order a Matsubara to get aquianted with wh...

Re: Geology of Jnats

That definition seems a little strict to me, though certainly nearly necessary for a stone to be used in the Japanese style of sharpening. At the very least they would be good criteria by which to gauge an unknown stone if someone wanted to try to pick up a random rock. Do awasedo that require the ...

Re: Tanaka VG-10 Damascus 240mm Gyuto Re-handle

Good catch!

I'm doing 3 at the moment. 2 blue 2's, 1 dammy, 1 nashiji and vg10 dammy.

Must have had that vg10 on my mind 😁

Thanks!
