I love the high grind on it. I think I'm down to that or a Tanaka Blue Nashiji. Your review sounds pretty perfect though.

I also like the Tanaka but the Ryusei sports a higher grind, nicer steel and better performing tip...I like the looks better too.

Re: Show us your new knife!

Gladius, Nice Makoto Ryusei! How are you liking it? Its one of the knives I'm currently considering for my next purchase. —- I got it Thursday but after few days using it feels like an old friend. A finely crafted knife with great fit and finish. Everything you’d want: tall grind, useful profile, g...

Nice. Milk paint ages well and looks good distressed. It does not peel like modern latex paints.How much you going to sell those for?

Inspired by the onion post, I made zucchini and onions.

Re: Onions, and how they SHOULD be cooked.

II used to slow cook weekly a batch of red onions in olive oil, add a little salt, sugar and balsamic vinegar and enjoy with beef sandwiches and beer. This post inspired me to slow cook some tonight but I added Zucchini and it came out fantastic. Thanks Nick! 9C5797D3-C5E4-47A6-AFA3-DD32F7927C98.jpeg

Re: Carbon Skillets

That chainmail is sexy. What about it do you like better than DeBuyers? —- It reacts to heat quicker probably due to the thinner lighter gauge steel, lighter and easier to handle, has developed a nicer more uniform seasoning (see my ugly DeBuyers http://www.chefknivestogoforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=...

Re: Carbon Skillets

I bought a Matfer soon after I saw this post - how could I go wrong it's only 20 bucks. It has been a fantastic pan and like it better than my DeBuyers. I lightly coated with lard, seasoned stovetop and simply started using it. Clean it with hot water and chainmail. https://i.imgur.com/WSWcbLm.jpg

Re: AEB-L ON NATURAL STONES

The Masamoto KS stainless maybe 19C27 and not AEB-L but both sharpen up well on naturals. I put a nice edge on my Konosuke Swedish using Binsui followed by Coticule. They are effective though not as aggressive as synthetics but can be as fast as they do not produce large burrs you need to spend time...

Re: Advice on Sharpening Kit

I think you will like the stones. I sharpened some German & Sabatiers today using the 300 & 800 stones wondering if you were going to give them a go. I also sharpen a Mac with them and finished on a Rikka. Post a reply after you put them to work.

Re: Advice on Sharpening Kit

I took a look at the reviews, and I'm definitely going to give the Matukusuyamas a try. Since they ship from Denmark, I'm not sure they solve my short-term problem, but I'm very interested to try them. Thank you very much for the recommendation! --- You might be surprised.

Re: Thinking cheeks

You can polish the shoulder where the grind transitions. Using spray, paste or emulsion (1-3 micron) on balsa works fine for this. Polish the shoulders until wedging is reduced.

Re: Looking for a new gyuto

The Kohetsu HAP40 Wa Gyuto 210mm (consider the $205 240mm instead) is a great choice with good performance and quality steel that can take a very keen edge and hold it a surprisingly long time, better than the rest you are considering. It is also carefree and lowest cost in your list.

Re: Advice on Sharpening Kit

Here are a few to broaden your horizon. They should easily address atrocious knives ( chances are not high quality ) at a good price and place nice working edges on them. When the assignment is complete they can be used to fill in your set at home. CKTG 80 Grit Diamond Plate $30 https://www.chefkniv...

Worth waiting for restocking or consider the JNS 800, a really great stone.
