    I can't speak for everyone, but I know I'm willing to wait for a quality product. I'll wait as long as it takes.

    Yeah, some of the stuff people do to their knives here are just... ugh. I've got a couple people coming to me for knife sharpening now, and while they are paying me for it, I'd do it for free just so...

    I did exactly that. Started on a 500 and the bevels are completely new. It's definitely sharp, but the edge feels wrong and it shaves arm hair poorly.

    it's not how they cut, it's the edge itself. I can't actually test how they cut since I have no available food where I sharpen. I dropped back to my mid grit stone and back up to the 5K and it's...

    What am I doing wrong?

    So I've gotten pretty proficient at sharpening my current knife, a Mercer, and have the sharpest knife in the kitchen as far as I'm aware. People have noticed this, and one of my coworkers asked me...

    There's 3 (I think) different grit scales. Generally this forum uses the Japanese ones, but I think there's an American grit scale where 1200 would in fact be a fine grit, equivalent to 4K or...

    Factory edges are often mediocre, and sometimes downright poor. Korin's sharpening will likely give you a better OOTB edge than you would otherwise get, though I can't personally attest to their...

    Best way to flatten stones?

    I have a bester 500, 1200 and a Rika 5k. Would an atoma diamond plate work for all three and if so what grit? What other ways are viable to sharpen stones?

    As a side point, I'm not super worried about having to replace an expensive knife in a few years. If that happens, oh well, I got my monies worth and have an excuse to buy a new pretty knife.

    Gesshin Ginga is probably top of the list right now, anyone here have any experience with the Yoshikane ones? They look real pretty, but I haven't heard...

    I'm getting a Tanaka 240 mm R2 damascus.

    I would be carving on a buffet, why would a carving knife be better for that?

    Hey guys, while I'm waiting on my gyuto to get to me, I figured I'd start looking for my second, so I know what's ahead. I'm probably going for a suji here, though I also want a petty for more...

    Where do you get compounds for stropping, Dave? Any particular suggestions? I made myself a few strops and want to get some compounds for them, but I'm not 100% sure which ones are best for what.

    They already are. I've seen some pretty terrible stuff, including a kitchen lead taking a serrated knife to a grinding wheel. There were no serrations when he finished.

    Yeah, I'm out of ideas myself. Just asking on the off chance someone here knows how to get in touch with either Tanaka or a Japanese distributor that would have these knives.
