    Having sharpened a number of these, I've yet to see one that didn't require significant thinning. I'll bet that's the case here.

    The short answer is, all of the above. Use marker on your bevels, pay attention to the original geometry, and thin as you go, and you'll be in good stead.

    I've had a few of these, and although I don't use it much these days, it's consistently been one of my favourite stones. It definitely benefits from a long soak, but because it is very susceptible to...

    For synthetics, 3000-6000, depending on knife, steel, and which stone I want to play with that day. I usually finish on naturals though, so that's a different story.

    That too. Like at the tip, people are hesitant to put their finger right on the point.

    Agreed. While I have seen some cheaper knives with genuine holes in the edge straight out of the box, which were the obvious result of poor grinding, many people seem to expect too much. High and low...

    I would imagine that if the grinder grinds from heel to tip, it could result from a slight hesitation after putting the blade to the wheel.

    In the case of knives with bolsters, it's the product of...

    Just a word of warning, sharpening on that plate is going to wear it out in no time. Soft, gummy stainless just loves to pull diamonds off of plates. Stick to flattening with it, or consider it...

    To be clear, I wasn't suggesting Chinese cleavers are going to become the next Kramers. Rather, they're inexpensive knives with the potential to increase in price relatively significantly. As you...

    Knives like your Henckels are unpleasant for anyone to sharpen, beginners even more so. Despite being soft, they're somewhat abrasion resistant, and being so thick behind the edge, it takes a long...

    A little different than what others are thinking, but I'm going to suggest Chinese knives. With rising income, higher expected wages, government encouragement for people to consume, and increasing...

    Quite stiff. The blade flexes slightly at about the halfway point if bent by hand, but that's using more pressure than it would see in use.

    For what it's worth the KS sujihiki runs long. The 240 KS is roughly the same actual length as the average 270, 250-260mm. It can be ordered as a 270 as well, which is around 280mm actual length.

    I had always thought that the kaede series was ginsanko. I'm not sure why, actually, as I've never really looked into it.

    Excellent. It reminds me very much of the best Ohira renge suita I have. Very fast, very smooth, on the hard side of medium hardness. Leaves a deeply hazy finish with good contrast. Quite a lot of su...

    Somehow I've ended up with four Takashima, of both suita and tomae, ranging from very soft to quite hard. Great stones, all of them. Very consistent in quality and feel. For an introduction to...

    You'd have to ask Koki about height and stiffness, but I'm thinking Itou or Saji at JCK. If semistainless is acceptable, Heiji might fit the bill. There don't seem to be that many interesting santoku...
