Nice job with the deba. Consitent bevel all the way and nice finish. Huge difference!

What's going on here around the 2-minute mark? Looks like a small natty you might you to build slurry along the sides of the knife.

My first thought is that you turned three knives into one. I was like, "What is this, Zelda?"

Then I noticed the ferrule notch on the Deba and chuckled to myself. I've got one of those!

that's not how I expected you to use the big wheel...I thought you would be using the curved side and wondered how you would keep surfaces flat/convex vs concave.

What were you doing to that blade? Looked like you were maybe polishing/rounding the spine at one point?

JBroida

i had to reshape the blade... thats what i was doing.

Everyone asks about the stone and why i use it this way. In japan there are two types of stones used in knifemaking/sharpening... one vertical (like what you had in mind) and one like mine. The vertical one is used more for rough shaping and the ura. The one like i have is used for the bevel and preparing for final sharpening. Its also used when makers do sharpening or repair. Since i'm not making blades here (yet), i use this stone.

Would you call this a deba with mioroshi hatsuke? Recalled you talked about this a while ago.

not quite... what we had talked about was mioroshi with deba hatsuke, but this is more like an ai-deba.

Loving the stone action. I am just wondering how you keep it flat. Do you use a DMT, like with a stationary stone?

JBroida
09-12-2012, 06:03 PM
no... keeping it flat is a skill in and of itself... i use an axe ;)

JBroida

Permanent google hang out would have been easier, wouldn't it?

Gosh... pretty soon he'll have Broida Hamono going, with his own Gesshin Broida line commissioned.

Morning now, over here in Seoul. I wake up, check emails, and find the sharpening livestream is on! Very soothing. Time to make coffee.

I myself like Justin.tv. The only draw back I have against it is they cater to Iphones.

google hangout limits the number of people that can interact and also it goes 2 ways, so i also have to pay attention to people instead of just sharpening... maybe if they make some new options i will go that route... quality on google is better for sure

This live stream thingy.... I have to censor Jon's language so much. Every time he curses and use F words, you guys should come and slap him!

how about cracking a whip? or a side of a wooden ruler on a knuckle?

HAHA, that is awesome. I'm gonna watch more, if for nothing else, to hear some cussing.

heh....sounds pretty typical for back-of-the-house types...Gordon Ramsey proves that (sarcasm...kinda).
