Just did this one today... thought you guys might enjoy pics ;)
Nice. Could you tell us the stones used?
Big wheel, gesshin 600, gesshin 1200 prototype, gesshin synthetic aoto prototype, gesshin 4k, gesshin 5k, and gesshin 6k
Nice. I've never seen one with a properly ground ura, they've always had a small but obtuse bevel cut into the back.
Looking forward to hearing about that synthetic aoto you're testing.
Some lucky guy owns that knife!
i'm just waiting on the "synthetic aoto" to get here... i feel like all of my projects are running slow as of late :(
Jon, how big is your big wheel?
I am thinking that the big wheel is like this one http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...500_AA300_.jpg
Liking the faux kasumi finish.
Just wondering from your progression whether 4k, 5k, 6k was just because you had them, or other benefits e.g. Speed, consistency etc?
The stones were all used for different things... some on the backside some on the front
