    Sujis are narrower than gyutos and will therefore taper less gradually. Not that it matters that much as a blade won't wedge in meat. The sujis I know aren't exactly delicate. Some sharpeners though...

    If so, you better abrade the burr. If it came off it would leave a heavily damaged edge behind.

    Are you sure? I would guess you go rather along -- and not across -- the grain to have grasped some debris.

    I add a 2-3" double microbevel on most of my knives, beginning at the heel, and use that section for rougher tasks.

    Carburundum (SiC) stones are great for removing a lot of steel, and are indeed meant to be used with huge pressure. I use them for fat stainless European blades. Both the Victorinox and the Zwilling...

    They all have a relief bevel at the lowest angle I'm comfortable with, right side gets a minibevel @35 degree or so, the other side a convexed edge ending below 15 degree. I start the minibevel on a...

    I've seen that single-sided microbevel at some 35 degree with soft carbons by Robert Herder, Solingen. Well, microbevel, rather a minibevel, as it is made on the coarse stone. It allows quite a ...

    My Cerax stone works quite well with basic carbon. With more advanced steels, e.g. VG-10 and AS, it seems not the best at dealing with the respective carbides, leaving an unstable edge.

    If I were left-handed I wouldn't go for a Hiromoto gyuto unless specially ordered which is now out of the question. Fairly asymmetric. Expect stiction issues with the relatively flat left face. They...

    I happen to know both the Victorinox and the Zwilling Motion, and both are better off with stropping on a 2k, I believe. Stay away from gadgets, please.

    Don't waste your time and stones with poor stainless steel. Get a simple basic carbon steel blade -- Old Hickory, Opinel, simple Robert Herder, K-Sabatier. And have fun.

    Don't use a rod. It will fatigue the steel, and the fatigued steel has to get abraded with the next sharpening session. I use a Chosera 800 with these stainless, and deburr perhaps on a 2k. For...

    Small factory, small batches, good HT, uneven F&F, decent OOTB edge. Not what I would call mass production like Shun, Global of Wüsthof.

    Hiromoto stops

    Mr Nagao, maker of the Hiromoto knives, has ended production of his regular series of Ginsang-3, Aogami Super and VG-10 Damascus knives, as Mr Koki Iwahara confirmed.

    If I remember correctly, you get your Misono with a highly, overly convexed edge, after factory buffering. A reasonable edge will be some 10-15 degree at the right side, convexed, and a small,...

    From the photos I would say it might be a very slight overgrind, or just a microbevel you didn't hit. Nothing to worry about.
