    Split leather. I've done it with Aogami Super, Blue #1, VG-10, and Konosuke's mystery HD2 steel in the kitchen.

    Outside of the kitchen I strop a lot of S30V, S90V, 3V, CTS-XHP, ZDP-189, Aogami...

    I like to use 6 and 3 micron diamond paste loaded strops to upkeep the "fresh off the stones" feel of the edge on my gyuto. It won't replace a stone in the same grit range, but it does making...

    About the Murata Blue #1 Nakiri (which I picked up for $75) I'll copypasta from a post I made elsewhere:

    It'd be hard to say for sure without having a yo-handled version in front of me, but just...

    I'd really like an AdHoc Goliath pepper grinder, but I already have another pepper grinder that I couldn't part with for sentimental reasons. Besides, what use is a 20 inch pepper grinder other than...

    I'm a lefty but ambidextrous, and end up using my right hand for kitchen knives a bit more than my left.

    I have a left handed Shun paring knife and a right handed Shun pairing knife. The...

    For the first few years I had my Shun Santoku (sp?) I was probably taking off too much steel when I sharpened. I sharpened on DMT diamonds for a while. Then I started getting into ceramics...

    Yeah, a good percentage of the time there's a small microbevel on the Shun. Whenever I sharpen it (usually every three or four months) I'll form an edge with a small microbevel and maintain it with...

    I had hoped you would have had greater insight into what may possibly be giving me the chipping issues I've been having with my Shun Classic santoku (sp?). I've had it for a long time, and I'd love...

    Ok. Hypothetically, if what you say is true, then shouldn't all knives I sharpen with this method end up with a "chippy" edge?

    My Dad also mailed me a couple of his own kitchen knives (which he...

    While possible, I sort of doubt it. I have a Shun Classic paring knife that gets virtually the same treatment that doesn't chip out. I also never use a honing rod; I strop instead.

    Nope, it is pretty true. I just re-beveled it about three weeks ago (I got a Shapton 2K in the mail and wanted to try it out) and finished it on 0.5 micron diamond paste. I made a salad with...

    Oh, and in my experience with VG-10 Shuns (specifically the Classic line) is that they chip out easily. Several people in my family have one or more, and my first "real" knife was a Shun Classic...

    It was a gift from my Dad. He's well aware of my knife hobby (and sharpening hobby) and has bought me a lot of knives over the years. In the past two years I've probably spent $600-800 on knives...

    Thanks for the replies and the welcome. I guess I'll give Williams and Sonoma a call to see if they will accept it since I don't have a receipt.

    What to do with gifted Shun

    I've been a lurker here for a while, but have recently encountered a dilemma. I was gifted a Shun Hiro serrated utility knife and I'm sort of scratching my head as to what to do with it.
