    I'm such a mess...I just sharpen, and the knife gets sharp. I generally end up a bit asymmetrical but try to make sure it's balanced and centered to control steering.

    They are very nimble knives but they do tend to be tall (the 150mm is 43mm tall)...a sabaki, rather than a thin funayuki, seems to...

    Yusuke, Shigefusa, Takamura, Carter, Zakuri, Zakuri, Carter, Kato, Zakuri. Lots of Zakuri, but it's hard to help myself cuz they're cheap and rewarding if the grinds are OK.

    They asked first if it was worthwhile to get one made of wood. Perhaps it's not in their best interest. I didn't contradict you, I only warned the OP that there'd be funneling toward...

    These fora are generally geared to drive you to specific vendors and products, so take suggestions with a big grain of salt. I use a rubber board because I don't like having to baby a wooden board.

    Depends on the quantities of Cr and V. Some steels have minute amounts of them for wear resistance, high polish, and grain refinement.

    Consider a modern "silversteel" like 115CrV3 (Böhler K510):...
