    Looks great, much more modern and clean. Like everyone else, I think it'd be good to have descriptions/prices on the items before hovering (or tapping on mobile).

    Also, for mobile use: It's hard...

    So, as an update on this nearly a year later: Still loving the Gesshin Ginga, and Iíve gotten to the point where Iím no longer hideously embarrassed at my sharpening ability, which is nice, too. ...

    That was my first thought on the chef's knife -- it's inexpensive enough that it won't be too much of a crime if they destroy it; and the synthetic handle would even hold up through the dishwasher,...

    A non-puppy gift knife?

    My parents have a set of Cutco knives, which they've had for at least 25 years now. It makes me die a little on the inside when I go over there and see them sawing through vegetables, and I'd like to...

    Sharpening - how do you "check your work"?

    So as I try to get better at sharpening, one of the problems I find myself encountering is the lack of a quick feedback loop. What I'd like to be able to do is sharpen up a knife, then test it...
  6. So, it's three months later now, and I've got...

    So, it's three months later now, and I've got some solid usage of the Gesshin Ginga in. With the same caveat as before -- my only basis of comparison is Henckels knives, not other Japanese knives --...

    So as a quick update, I've gotten all my stuff in the mail (and am impressed at how much evident care is put into the package from JKI).

    I haven't had a chance to use the Gesshin yet, except to...

    I, uh, wouldn't complain? :)

    I figure I'm going to be terrible at sharpening at first, so my plan is to try sharpening up my Henckels knives until I'm confident I can sharpen a knife without...

    So, I've ordered some Chosera stones and a thing to go over the sink, and then took tk's advice and ordered the Gesshin Ginga.

    I figure at this point, my choices were mostly between options that...

    Thanks for the link. What would make you recommend it over the Konosuke?

    (Er, not sure why that word got asterisked out? Did I break a forum rule somehow?)

    Echerub, this thread has been really helpful and has gotten me pointed in a lot of useful directions.

    I think I'm pretty well committed to the semi-stainless stuff. The thread has made me...

    So, I am very sympathetic to the idea that I wouldn't want a temperamental, or hard to care for, knife. (That's kind of the premise of the original post, in fact.)

    But I don't think that...

    And I mean, let's be clear about this. I've probably spent a dozen hours now reading up on various knives and sharpening systems and what-not. So it's not like I'm someone who just walked into a...

    I've been able to find most of the things people are mentioning here by Google, but this time I just get Mario Batali knife links, which I strongly suspect isn't what you mean.

    Link?
  16. Ah, thanks! That's a point I hadn't considered. ...

    Ah, thanks! That's a point I hadn't considered. I wasn't really worried about the machine sharpening, because I've read enough about sharpening in enough places to have come to the conclusion that...

    So as I look for those, I see that (for instance) the Sakai Yusuke is sometimes described as "Swedish stainless" and sometimes as "White No. 2 Steel." It looks to me like these are different things...
  18. A high-end no-fuss knife - contradiction in terms?

    Reading this forum has been incredibly addicting, and I've been very tempted by a bunch of the knives that get recommended here, but...

    I know myself. I am lazy. I am sometimes going to cook and...
