Those look great sir.
Howdy. I am in the Hartford area.
I have used a Sawzall before, I did not find it terribly effective and switched to a hand/hack saw.
Yes. All of this.
I prefer coco cola as during pull cuts it gives you the best grip, hand doesn't feel like it wants to slip off the end of the handle.
That looks real nice.
I had the DMT from Marko before I got the diamond stones from Jon. I suppose if I had the stones from Jon I could do without the DMT, but I still like it. It is faster, I use it completely dry, it...
I like to use Jon's 1k/6k diamond stone set for at work sharpening. Splash & go for real (no short soak needed) and you don't have to flatten them. I also have an 8k DMT plate and a felt strop...
Basically, yes. I rolled my eyes at his teflon pan selection and using a bread knife as a slicer, but basically, yeah, that's it.
You aren't doing anything wrong. I think this method makes...

All Kono Fujiyamas that I have seen have this peak or crease on their choils.
I'm in! I have never been to MN, have family there, and would love to visit.
Hey I know that guy ;)
All three of mine (bog oak, ironwood and cocobolo I believe) are doing great, no issues at all.
I like this bone chopper that I got from Maxim:
Don was popular on reddit not too long ago. Maybe the student taught the master something on his recent visit to Murray's.
The chip is no big deal, if that is a crack that is a slightly bigger problem. It goes a little deeper than the chip. But if you have a diamond plate and can thin a knife, you can do this, it just...
I know, I meant to put an "other" in there.
There are many factors, including a sharpener's ability and heat treatment. As a generalization however, R2/SG2 is considered a better steel than stainless like VG10.
