I have a Hiromoto Tenmi Jyuraku Aogami Super Series 210mm Gyuto AS Carbon steel in great shape, I have used it for 6 months and the patena is really starting to look great. I love the knife it's...
I gave it a vinegar bath and then julienned 6 gallons of onions and it finally started to patina in a stable manner. How long is your 270 in real talk?
Both look great . What's the steel on the Catchside?
Could also be very thick behind the edge as well, so even if very sharp will cut poorly in firm or hard materials due to the thick blade wedging badly
Item: JNAT - Hideriyama.
Description: This stone is originally from JNS. It is a fairly soft stone and muds up quickly. Great for blending
