Hey Jon, What sizes do the pettys come in? Thanks


07-27-2011, 09:49 PM

I keep trying to explain to people how cool these knives are... i think the video does them justice ;)

Great stuff, Jon. The pettys do look very cool. And, I really like everything I see from your Gesshin collection - and love seeing all of the "special" knives these makers can do. When im next down in LA, i will be sure to come by. I the meantime, thanks for the video

Well I for one hate your Ino video. I was doing just fine without knowing how cool looking the Hon-Kasumi gyutos let alone the Honyaki knives. Big note to self, "Don't watch Jon's knife videos." :biggrin:

I have wondered, how do you maintain the polished surface on the honyaki knives?

07-28-2011, 01:53 PM
there are a number of things that work... flitz, adams #2, chromium oxide, micromesh, etc.

Honyaki blades actually scratch less than clad knives due to the hardness of the steel... but mirror polished knives almost always pick up minor scratching.

Didnt salty do a video on this once? I vaguely recall that.
