    I have one of the bad examples from Shun, substandard ht here = crap. Shun has a return policy they honor for this sort of thing and I intend to see how good their word is here.

    Just curious what problems are you having with the belt sander? A 220 belt should cut pretty fast and not get you into any trouble too easy, and I should think it would leave you with something you...

    As Jaques' example demonstrates just about any knife can be used for boning chicken. But a 240 suji is a go to knife for me. It is much better than a gyotu for cutting items in-hand (be...
