Re: Sanituff cutting boards

They have been brought up a few times in cutting board threads. Generally they get pretty positive reviews if using/needing something other than wood. Yep. +1.

Re: Reprofile handle

Well, it may depend on the metal you are sanding. When I did that Dojo handle I used the power sander with frequent breaks to keep it from overheating, and I didn't get any discoloration on the steel. Sage advice is always to go slower than you think, and take more breaks.

I was thinking all hand tools. Hack saw and various files. I prefer not to use power tools. Safer and less likely to mess up.
If it is full tang, you'll have to cut or sand metal to shorten the handle. It is 'do-able' with hand tools, but will take a long, long time.

Re: Reprofile handle

You need a power disc sander (big 10" or 12" ideally) to shorten if it is full tang (see metal all the way to the back of the handle). You've got to get rid of metal and handle material. Hand sander would be possible, but likely pretty dangerous and imprecise.

Re: What grit to start with

LOL. I didn't mean to imply that one should live by a pressure scale or any other metric.

Best advice I got was to be consistent with my angle and to taper off of every stone with fewer and fewer strokes with less and less pressure.

Re: Looking for first fillet knife

Salmon come from middling to huge. They would benefit from different knives. You could do salmon well with many sujihikis. You just need something durable enough to pop through the ribs. A Kanehide Bessaku sujihiki would be great. There's a Tojiro on closeout right now that I think would do well, t...

Re: What grit to start with

I don't know if this helps anyone, but I put a stone on a digital scale, blanked it out, and took a look at exactly how much pressure I was using. I was told 5lbs is about right. I was using a lot more. Kinda eye opening. Doesn't take much.

Re: Forcing Patina on Takeda

stab into the middle of a rare beef roast and let sit for a bit, check every couple min.

Also had good luck rubbing cooked fat off a boston butt right onto blade and letting sit for a bit.

keep away from acidic stuff like onions and citrus until you have a patina set in.
