    Vintage Japanese Knives

    Old and used all the time cutting fish so always in water. Most Japanese knife makers do a poor job or don't fill in the open area around the tang and handle with bond or glue. This leads to pieces...

    If it's a deba then it's a lefty. They don't engrave on the back side unless it's small located on the iron not carbon steel. I was thinking a Ryo deba, double bevel deba. The other knife is a chuka...

    Vintage Japanese Knives

    Those can be fixed if you know what your doing. Will take done time if all you have is whetstones and no machines. You can order new handles and re handle then quite easy, but would have to see how...

    I use the sigma 400 a lot but it's more of my bridging stone from a low 110-240 grit stone to a medium grit. It works well there. But as said above if you plan on using it as your main low grit work...

    Starting freehand ?

    I agree with that if you have no level of experience or technique. Then it is all about technique. But if you are skilled tools really do matter. Do you expect your expert craftsmen to produce their...

    Sharpening Scissors

    You do not sharpen scissors the same way you do knives. As they said above thinning them weakens them. You have to remove the pin and sharpen each blade individually.

    Is try to sand or add something to soften it up. Generally harder cutting boards dull your edge a lot faster depending on your cutting/chopping technique.

    Getting a bit discouraged

    It's probably very dull and needs to be thinned. Would take forever on a 1000 stone. Try a 240 or 400 grit stone to thin it out before jumping to your medium grit 1000. Also what steel are the...

    The video you posted is fugu, pufferfish, slicing. It is not a yanagiba but a fugubiki. They look similar to yanagiba but are much thinner in order to cut very thin slices.
