    I've always wondered if some kitchen knives I've got are in some way inferior to the MS knives in terms of edge resistance. I don't think I could chop a 2x4 in half with my knives and then still...

    I pried my stone off the plastic stone holder. Didn't like how slippery the feet were and I like my stone holders more. It's stuck onto the plastic holder with four dots of contact cement which can...

    I just read the other day why the Japanese handle makers use their soft Magnolia wood for the handles and the explanation on one webpage was that "it wears to the user". I guess these handles are...

    People that make teak floors usually have boards in suitable widths. It's not at all expensive if you can manage to find/buy single boards. Maybe ebay could help? Totally waterproof if oiled!

    The one I got is the Super Stone 10000, I think it's green? How's the kasumi on that? If it's not too soft it might also polish the softer steel?

    Here's the back! Hard to tell from the image but it's really really thin in the edges.
  13. Japanese stone very thin - reinforcement needed?

    I just got a new japanese stone! No idea what it is but it creates a mirror finish so must be good!
    The only problem with it is that it is extremely thin! About 6mm in some places, like the Shapton...

    I've got a shapton glass 220. Very fast! Might be a bit rough (although it's so hard it won't make deep scratches), so you could get a 320 or 500 or 1000 too. Cheapest ones are from 330mate and...
