Re: CBN or Diamond Paste

It's apparently quite good...Gopher likes it... I bought this product several months ago, and have stropped many knives with it on balsa.. and it works extremely well!I have tried the Diamond/CBN sprays, but keep returning to Richmond's paste. It cuts well according to the carbon/metal left beind on...

The paste appears to also be water based.

The biggest complaint I've heard over the years about the KS is the height. Those who got them at 50mm were the more satisfied crowd when it came to the KS. When they were 46-48 is when people were less satisfied.

That is why I sold my two KS's and my Kono Ginsan 240

Re: Trying to understand the mechanics of over honing...

Looks like I stepped in it...lol. I realized I forgot to some important info. I keep all my knives very sharp,I don’t mind touching them up on SG4k or Rika 5k because I find it enjoyable. A better question would have been, “At what grit do I take a Henckels to that is used by someone who does not s...

Re: Yahiko Shirogami Hairline 240 passaround

Very good to know! I wonder if Mazaki will make any changes to the Hairline now that his name will be on them... :?: I wonder how the JNS version compares with the version sold by Cleancut. Have heard good things about both. --- I read in a newsletter as a result of Mazaki spending more time traini...

Re: Trying to understand the mechanics of over honing...

I like using combination stones i.e. stones created from various grits similar to what you would get from a natural stone. One of my favorites for softer western steel is the JNS Red Aoto Matukusuyama which is a " Bland of grits 2000-4000 grits, extra big ! ". What I also like to finish on is an Ama...

Re: Yahiko Shirogami Hairline 240 passaround

The Hairline gyutos are thinner than Mazaki brand knives from JNS. The thicker Kato'esque blades perform much better.

Re: looking for a new knife

Thank y'll! The money I intended to spend had to be less because I bought a sous vide instead lol... But after some reading about a good knife (without my preference) I ended up buying Misono Swedish carbon and hope it will turn out good. My chef has a Misono 440 (?) and it felt kinda good in the h...

I would never think to upgrade the handle of my Munetoshi (butchery is so messy) but that looks really nice.

Re: WTB Chosera 800/1000(or other med grit), finishing stone, cheap W2 240mm gyuto

I’d recommend a carbon clad nakiri or santoku (knives with height) or a semi-stainless Kanehide TK or PS60 to learn on. This will give you rewarding experience and a quality knife with height as you will lose some with repeated sharpening.

Re: Mould/mildew on stone

An acid wash should work. Straight white vinegar, let it dry then brush off under running water. The vinegar is not toxic but the mold can be hazardous if breathed but brushing under running water should reduce the risk.
