That is a good point, as I said in a later post.
Missed that Kit, I made my comment without refreshing the page.

I am also not sure I have ever cut a thick fresh carrot without a final crack!

Re: Wedging

So will a 35 dps macro bevel from sharpening for a long time without thinning. :lol: Seriously, I agree that it sounds like some thinning is in order. In fact, sometimes even a new knife benefits from a good thinning. At least for me. I am not sure about this advice. I agree with Chip here. No way ...

Re: Bundle pack 3 knives at a great price

Yes, it's daylight robbery more like it.
I will hate myself when they sell for not buying them.
These are all special knives.
Hell...the takobiki is worth the asking. The other 2 are free!
Plus Pedro is a stand up seller and guy.
Someone buy them. Please!!!!!

Re: Wedging

Nice collection you have there!
Some of my absolute faves. I cannot understand why some of those are wedging.
The Koishi and HD should fall through produce. Having said that, Hard products will always bring out the worst in a knife.

It's on hold for someone right now.
If it does not sell I will keep it for a while.
Then make a killing on the re-inflated market :lol:

Re: WTS: Masamoto KS Gyuto 240mm

Ramon...no worries my friend. I did not take your comment that way at all :-) I understood you were talking about vendors which is why I answered that way, not having seen any that were upping the price. It is sad that they do that but it's business I guess. I actually thought some buyers might be u...

Re: WTS: Masamoto KS Gyuto 240mm

According to Mark..this is it for a while...possibly longer. The knife was priced at $350 which to my knowledge is what every one else was charging, so I don't think they have been inflated. I was hoping to get back all my investment and have the buyer pay for shipping, thus my price. It is pretty m...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Have you ever tried any of the knives by Kenichi Shiraki that are sold under the Sakai Jikko Akebono brand banner? Think you might like them. --- Jikko knives are excellent. FYI...Carter is having a sale on Shiraki knives: https://www.cartercutlery.com/product-category/knives/shiro-blowout-sale/ Ma...

^^I do have a Shiraki honyaki from Konosuke and am a huge fan of that knife. I'll most certainly have to check out Jikko.
Jello :mrgreen:
Is it a gyuto? I still do not have any honyaki gyutos. Have to fix that soon.
