    I'm not trying to be rude here, but having used 4 of those other brands that you mentioned - if you're going to be spending equal or even less than you did for a MAC or Global, you're not really...

    A discussion on asymmetry would be much appreciated! Especially if you could talk about asymmetric bevels in relation to asymmetric grinds... I find that can sometimes be confusing, especially from a...

    It's definitely pronounced.

    I don't know if I'd say they're too asymmetric, it's treated me pretty well, but if I had to do it again as a lefty, I would get something different. Food release is...

    I've owned a Sakai Takayuki Damascus Wa-Gyuto 210mm.

    It felt very... plastic. Not just the handle but the cladding & even the core steel itself. I was extremely disappointed and returned it.

    Do you like hard stones? And how important is feedback to you?

    I have both a Shapton GS 1k & 4k. AFAIK, there's only the 4k & 6k so those are your options for that grit range.

    I actually like...

    I'm with you about preferring softer stones & toothy edges (and keeping an eye out for the next sale! :D).

    That's surprising to hear the synthetic Red Aoto is so soft. Especially with your...

    It's my favorite mid-grit stone. I love it.

    It's kind of a tricky stone in that I was originally sort of unhappy with it. It takes a little work to really come out into its own. It's fairly crusty...

    I've seen your Instagram. You probably have more than most of us combined :D Can't say I'm not jealous...

    I'm still slowly working towards bringing my edges to that next level, but one thing that...

    I think it all comes down to technique and practice.

    I'd love to hear some of the more experienced (and professional) sharpeners here chime in on the subject.

    Nice stones will certainly make it...

    I wouldn't over-think it too much. I was gifted a Shun Kaji (also SG-2) and it's nowhere near as difficult as it's being made out.

    You could sharpen up your Shun on a King 1k (one of the slower,...

    That's strange.

    It sounds like you've tried using it without a DMT slurry & still had that problem. Are there any lines in the stone that might be causing it?

    FWIW I have the same issue with my...

    How is the reactivity of these two? Do they need a (forced) patina to settle down or can you let one form naturally w/o it affecting product?

    It's funny, when I started out it was Global/Shun/MAC...

    Good to see I'm not alone on that.

    It's a fun knife to play with. I know that I've seen Dave Martell say that they seem to be coming in a wide range of thickness these days. Mine was definitely on...

    I think this is a pretty rad deal.

    If you look at what people pay for other high end stones (natural or synthetic), or even knives, I definitely feel like you'd be getting your money's worth.

    He uses a Kikuichi 210mm petty.

    You can do all that with pretty much any knife but a longer petty is just plain fun because they're so light, thin & nimble.

    At home I don't use anything larger than 240mm. I just don't have the space.

    That said, at work, I definitely have been leaning towards larger knives. Using a nice 270mm gyuto is a revelation. My...
