    You'd have to ask Koki about height and stiffness, but I'm thinking Itou or Saji at JCK. If semistainless is acceptable, Heiji might fit the bill. There don't seem to be that many interesting santoku...

    I'd think that would seem run of the mill to you.

    I've seen that thing in person, never used it though. I have to say it's probably a hell of a lot better of a solution for most people than the average pull through device.

    And yeah, the burr...

    The new one I've seen was ground similarly to the old one I have, albeit a little thinner. To put it another way, they both have a wide secondary bevel with a soft shoulder, but on new ones the bevel...

    That sounds similar to mine, then, which is an older hontanren. At 270, though, mine's a bit heavier. From what I can gather, the wide bevel on new hontanren is the result of a new style of...

    Beautiful, both of them. I've not handled the suminagashi line, what's the grind like in comparison to the normal hontanren? Mizuno hontanren is one of my favourite knives, I'd love to hear the...

    I misread Salty's post, and thought he said to wait until Kramer dies and auction it on eBay. I thought that sounded like cold, but good advice.

    I've never found any stainless cladding to be difficult to thin, just unpleasant. Like Jon says, it feels gummy, and tends to load stones more.

    That's equally possible too. Every DMT I had before switching to Atomas wore like patchwork.

    This photo shows well what I mean: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bwa1j-dlUS25ak00N3dIbzczRFNEYnNSTU1PaHVMN21aUjRz/edit. It's easier to get a smooth finish towards towards the heel, as the blade...

    That streaking looks like what happens when your mud gets too dry, or you use too much pressure. It frequently happens around the curve of the tip, since it's a lot harder to follow the contour of...

    Have you thoroughly flattened the stone and rounded all edges and corners? The streaks or gashes in the finish could be from riding the edges of the stone. I also would try without the DMT. A coarse...

    This too. I'd never realize until there's blood in the swarf. I'm surprised I have any fingerprints at all on my index and middle fingers. Way worse than a cut too, since they don't close up, instead...

    Yep, I've been there, towel around finger and fingertip in baggy. I'll spare you the photos. As an addendum, don't sharpen where someone can walk up behind you and spook you (or with someone who is...

    I don't bother. If I'm concerned about consistency of dice, I do radial cuts.

    I've been wondering about this knife for years. I'll be very interested to see what it's like.

    That's about the amount of curve I like too. It is flatter than most cleavers I've seen, though.

    I think that there are indeed practical benefits to flatter profiles, and I myself prefer very flat profiles. That said, I think that we here tend to fetishize knives and knife skills, and thus self...

    My guess is, we here are a hyper-specific minority of the knife world, and even those in the broader majority with the best knife skills don't obsess as much about the minutia of their knives.

    Nice job. I've got a 270 Mizuno in the same condition (in fact I almost bought that very one). I've still yet to work on it, but I look forward to getting it into shape. The Mizuno was the one knife...

    If anyone can't get ahold of shellac, I've had good luck with this lacquer: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?cat=1,190,42942,45092&p=45092. I like that it's clear, and so preserves the...
