Having used both a Fujiwara FKM and a CarboNEXT, I'd say that they were very similar in performance. The CarboNEXT does have somewhat better edge retention, and that could be significant when using...
I'm curious to know where you read about edge retention of the Fujiwara FKM. Is it from a knowledgeable source, or just someone "shooting from the hip"?
Thinning is done by placing the blade flat...
Good call. In this increasingly litigious society, and given her attitude, she'd be apt to hire a hungry lawyer and you'd might well have been on the wrong side of a lawsuit.
Dave didn't (or couldn't) mention it, but the JKS 3000 might be what you are looking for:

If you have the budget, get the three-stone "core" set of Beston 500, Bester 1200 and Suehiro Rika 5000:
The trailing edge technique is recommended by several members. There is no downside to it, except for those who have long experience with edge leading, and would need time to relearn edge trailing....

The KitchenAid ProLine is great for both Aeropress and Chemex. I've used mine daily for over six years and it's still going strong.
Good to hear that. How do you like the knife?
Sayas for knives like Heiji and Shigefusa are tight in one spot - the emoto (neck) right before the ferrule. There is little contact of the blade inside the cavity, therefore no scratching. Heiji's...
I suggest that you just let it be, and not sand it at all. It is a friction fit saya, and will loosen up in time. Removing material when it is new will result in a sloppy fit down the line.

If that doesn't work, try bourbon and soda until the stain doesn't bother you anymore.
These stones have become my go to for most all of my sharpening that doesn't require thinning or creating a kasumi finish. They don't require thinning, and a quick spray of water is all that's...
