    I don't bother. If I'm concerned about consistency of dice, I do radial cuts.

    I've been wondering about this knife for years. I'll be very interested to see what it's like.

    That's about the amount of curve I like too. It is flatter than most cleavers I've seen, though.

    I think that there are indeed practical benefits to flatter profiles, and I myself prefer very flat profiles. That said, I think that we here tend to fetishize knives and knife skills, and thus self...

    My guess is, we here are a hyper-specific minority of the knife world, and even those in the broader majority with the best knife skills don't obsess as much about the minutia of their knives.

    Nice job. I've got a 270 Mizuno in the same condition (in fact I almost bought that very one). I've still yet to work on it, but I look forward to getting it into shape. The Mizuno was the one knife...

    If anyone can't get ahold of shellac, I've had good luck with this lacquer: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?cat=1,190,42942,45092&p=45092. I like that it's clear, and so preserves the...

    I'd be curious to see pictures if you wanted to post them in your sub forum. My white #2 gyuto is ground differently than any other Fujiyama gyuto I've seen. The bevel is blended like the other...

    Aoko and ginsanko have wide bevels with sharp shinogi, shiroko have narrower blended bevels. Never seen one I would describe as thick though. My white #1 sujihiki is thinnest at the spine, followed...

    I couldn't tell you how many tips I've reground, and I'd still rather change edge profile any time. Sure, it'll require some thinning to restore the geometry, but that's a normal part of the...

    There's nothing exactly like a KS except a KS (or HS). The most unique part of the design isn't actually the flatness, but the pointiness of the tip. Misono is the closest I've seen in anything...

    I can't speak for Zwilling USA, but I wouldn't expect them to understand what the problem is. Unless you can show the issue to a rep and have them personally take a knife out of stock and check it,...

    Thanks, I figured as such. I don't do a lot of either salmon or trout, but I can see how deba would be clumsier.

    Yeah, I use both in conjunction. I use MX for establishing a base scratch pattern, and after progressing through the MX series, use standard Micro Mesh for higher polishing.
