You can give JBro a big yell, he had some training at that restaurant with Chef Ueda-san.
suji heading your way?
As far as I know, chosera and super stone are not replaced, but they are now available to Japanese domestic market only. New lines may be the same thing, or not, but mainly for export.
Good to have you here, Barry. I have visited your site every now and then in the past.
You're kidding... that'd be awesome.
Nice to have you on Shig yo band wagon.
Next time, it should be a barbi at someone's place with tons of gidgee charcoal as the main heat source.
I want this for my breakkie.
Do you to be a new carer to my kasumi deba 180?
Small fish, squid, cuttle fish, etc.
Maxim called it single bevel petty, but I do think it is the same as other places where it is sold as general purpose fish knife for fisherman on the boat. It is also similar to ikasaki or squid...
Yes, there are quite a few down this way, I have a number myself.
For single bevel, 270 kitaeji yanagiba, 210 kitaeji diamond tip usuba/kiritsue, 180 kitaeji deba, 180 kasumi deba, 210 kasumi...
Ha ha, for that knife with finger guard, it is in the way of sharpening. The very finger guard has to be ground down to allow full sharpening of the heel.
That's nice. Did you forget to take back your new Marko's knife?
Nice, and you have started modifying the handle already, coooool.
Now that you have already had a bad experience with Watanabe, may I suggest Hide white #1? 270 is just $240, and 300 is just $290 from here, direct from Japan.
Second for Heiji 210 SS Santoku. "So" has both normal and thin versions available right now. Both are in KU though.
Mine is 50mm tall, and so should these.
Oh oh .. you have scratched this beauty. It is not good anymore, call Mert. He will take it off your hands at a deep discount.
Basically, too coarse stone or too hard stone as far as I can see....
Here are some ld posts from Dr.Naka.
Nice. Tip section bevel could be raised a bit higher do that bevel width would be more even from heel to tip. And that would also make tip section a little thinner too.
Thank Len, great to hear that they are different out loud from someone who has handle them besides vendors themselves.
