    I was on the newsletter until a few weeks ago, then I just stopped receiving. But as I said the news I was receiving included very few kitchen items. I almost pulled the trigger on some Carter...
  2. Murry Carter no longer making kitchen knives?

    It's just idle curiousity but curious never the less that for months now Carter Cutlery has shown very little on the site in the way of kitchen knives. Are they all being sold in his new store?

    OK, if this is a wire on my shun's edge then it is the biggest, thickest damn wire than can be, but I guess that is within the realm of possibility.

    Well Jay no offense but you are being a wee bit of a wanker here. I wasn't knocking vg10 in general, I was knocking shun for the inconsistent quality of their vg10 and various edge qualities which...

    This sort of complex geometry would benefit from solid modeling and machining on a cnc miller or surface grinder to produce consistent curvatures and benefit the development process as well. Couple...

    I dunno about that, I find a polished edge stay sharp longer, particularly with my crappy-heat-treat shun vg10 that acts as if it had internal stresses alone that bend the edge. It would also seem...

    I have a Shun in vg10 and it sucks. The edge stability is very poor, due to bad heat treat, and the edge deformed with just a few passes through a steak. Sharpening it a dozen times to a fresh edge...

    Given CPM technology I don't doubt we will eventually see a truly never-before-come-close-to all around performance in a knife steel. We will likely even see ceramics with the plasticity/toughness...

    Commonly in knife stropping one uses leather, or balsa which I...
  15. Anyone tried loading mylar sheets with stropping compounds?

    I haven't used them yet myself, so has anyone here had good success loading mylar sheets with water-suspension diamond or CBN?

    If so then how course a grit can you do this with?

    I've designed a...

    Devin I'm glad to hear the abscess was on a toe, that's a far better situation than if it had been the bottom of your foot.
