Looks like one of these

They reminded me of when Homer designed a car
Iron key drives can be set to 'Self-destruct' whereby they'll erase the data and encryption keys after 10 failed attempts. The enterprise ones also allow for extra features like geo location of use...
As it is an oily wood oil finishes take longer to dry and stay tacky for a while. Sanded to a high grit and then polished with a wax blend gives a good finish IME
I've got a takamura gyuto I picked up in Japan, takes a great edge and keeps it well
Don't forget the follow up "intelligent design" anti stab knives
The comment regarding 17 bladed weapons, I have no idea what they are referring...
Nice vid of the forging of a kitchen knife by a UK maker. I went on a course with Owen about 3 years ago and made my first knife which really taught me a lot.
Those would polish up nicely, the main thing to watch for is pitting, especially near the edge
I reckon my takeda and some of my Carter's are close to 10
Might have something that'd work, I'll send you a pic
The treatment of the steel during the knifemaking process is also slightly different e.g heating to forge welding temperatures to stick the layers together, and the potential for carbon migration...
I love the way you've put that together, a lot of technique and skill but still somehow understated elegance.
If I hadn't just bought a house I'd be asking how much
Almost certainly something nice. I often trawl eBay looking for pieces like that to pop up. Are you going to rehandle it?
Have you found a carving knife yet?
IIRC Salty requested the profile specifically when custom ordering from Kramer.
A lot of old Sheffield knives were made from Silver steel, but the tolerances for the steel would not be at closely defined as with modern steels, so there were large amounts of variation between...
By rotating the stone you can use the stone evenly more easily then square edge stones
What knives are they? If they're typical stainless a decent 1k stone and some micromesh (in whatever grit you fancy) stuck to a board as a strop will get you decent edges.
Something like a bester or...
I've done it quite often. Wrap them well and label the package as sharp in case they do search your luggage.
Just note if they do search your bag they may not rewrap it as carefully as you did, I...
Good to hear he reworked it for you, hopefully when it arrives it'll perform.
Brisa may have some
Go for a stacked leather handle, the end result will be much better than wrestling with trying to fit scales, there are plenty of tutorials online
Don't have experience with it as a combo stone but I like the 1k bester I have. The king 1k 6k was my first stone and is generally recommended as a good starting point. However it is relatively slow...
Wondered about them for a while, but the cost and lack of reviews has always held me back from getting one. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has used one
Thanks for taking the time to write that up, really interesting
Good luck with it. Did a similar thing a year and a half ago and whilst it took a bit of adjusting to, everything is going well now and we're glad we made the move. Wish I'd stockpiled more wine...
