    That is exactly why I just took the plunge with the Totally Bamboo, neither is bad I'm sure but I hadn't heard of a single comparison.

    Yeah I paid for the faster shipping, it's still so cheap anyways. I just have to try and forget I ordered it, haha like that will work.

    Just an update for those looking at the Sakai Yusuke. Saya's are available (standard pricing), hardness increase to 61HRC is $7 extra, and cost for extra hardness and Ebony Handle is total $270 (not...

    No Carbon but thanks for offer Lefty. I had been considering the Konosuke HH Stainless now that you bring up the brand. I'll leave Carbon for my future purchases I think probably the Yoshikane SKD...

    Forgot to mention I would need to pick up a Saya for the Sakai, I'm waiting to hear back if they carry them as well.

    I didn't see your post before I sharpened again and posted, but at 20 degrees my sharpie mark looked to be coming off. Would a lower say 15 degree angle be better do you think?

    I just chopped up a...

    Ok I just resharpened :biggrin: and using the sharpie trick and Tiltmeter my right side looked good at 20 degrees and my left at 10 degrees. I did a couple strokes and checked and my mark "looked" to...

    In the case of the Konosuke Stainless, Ashi Stainless or even perhaps a Sakai Yusuke (Bluewayjapan on ebay) they are considered "laser" knives right? Would I be right in assuming they are a little...
