    The Tojiro DP aren't known for being particulary fragile. And even when neglected to some extend, the core steel will still work. Nothing to worry about unless you're a heavy rock-chopper.

    I'm sorry, Michael, but I can very well compare the Hiromoto, Carbonext and Global as far as edge retention is concerned. I must humbly admit I've sharpened them myself, so, I won't refer to any...

    It wasn't me that compared these very different blades. It was you. And saying they were all professionally sharpened doesn't impress. Any sharpener would put an extremely conservative edge on a...

    Just curious about your compairing of edge retention by so different steel types. I do believe the Hiromoto at 25 degree inclusive will retain its edge just as well as the Carbonext at 35 degree, and...

    Wire edge? Apply some pressure with your coarse stone to make sure you're pushing the debris over the edge instead of staying on the rounded edge. Any jig system involved perhaps?

    A few suggestions: look for a heavier gyuto (I have the Hiromoto AS and Masamoto HC in mind), eliminate steering by proper sharpening, loosen your grip and speed up your motion.

    @Mangelwurzel: that vendor is a honest guy. For Western kitchen and double-bevelled blades even 2-3k could be the limit. I use 5k only for deburring.

    AS is quite stable once a patina got installed, what happens almost immediately at use. This one after one day of home use:

    I would second Erilyn75 about both the size question and the value of both Hiromotos. Both have a remarkable steel in their categories. Just curious how she would compare them to the Misono 440...

    I love bread, love my gyuto, dislike bread knives, so I use a cheap but thin one, by Henckels International. I'm not going to use a fine gyuto edge on a hard crust.

    The Hiromoto 190 is a great performer. Keep it away from your roommates, and make sure to warn them. They will cut themselves.

    The proportion 60/40 does not refer to the angles but to the degree to which the edge is off-centered. A 50/50 has the edge in the center, a 90/10 has the edge very strongly off-centered to the left,...

    The CN isn't especially thick behind the edge, so carrots shouldn't be a problem. What you describe may be caused by improper sharpening, by not respecting the blade's asymmetry.

    I you hold the knife with a lose grip, and cut into a piece of copy paper, does it cut straight, or does it make a curve?

    This is really funny. We don't know anything about the OP's mother, but people advise knives they never would buy for themselves, a Shun, a 180mm gyuto, a Henckels set.

    Some brand new stones seem inactive as long they haven't been lapped, as if the particles should get freed.

    I read that rock-chopping and walking are the OP's favourite actions. Why looking for a flatter profile and harder steel?
