    The Boardsmith made a 52 slot maple block for me 3 years ago. It's perfect for daily knife use. My wife has a place for her preferred knives and I have enough room for my collection of daily users....

    Is this the knife you use on a daily basis? If so, why worry about scratches? I get the knife aesthetics thing and like mine to look nice too. But my daily knives are all scratched up from all...

    How do you know it is the asymmetry and not the grind or the thinness behind the edge that improves cutting ability? Short of a controlled experiment can you know?

    I am left handed and have been using Japanese knives for about 10 years. I can't honestly say I've ever had a problem with any gyuto I have used. Even ones advertised as 70/30 grind have been fine,...

    Dave recommended this stone (can be found here: http://www.bladegallery.com/shopexd.asp?id=80081 as well as other places) as a rapidly cutting coarse stone. I use it to thin double knives and it is...

    I am also on the East Coast. I never had a problem with them, though it has been a while since I ordered from them. As someone else said, I'd rather support the vendors who support KKF.

    I don't know, maybe I'm a lot less motivated. There are so many knives out there why buy one with a strong righty bias? I can see making an assymetric bevel on a 50-50 knife but to try to...

    Dave PM'd me that if I wanted to be surprised I shouldn't click on the link he provided. That decision took about 2 nanoseconds. Those handles look fantastic. Stefan, you are indeed an artist. ...

    I got a reply today in 6 hours from Koki. The time difference maybe a factor in reply times.

    Anybody know how thin the spine can be on a yanagiba? I assume there is a limit beyond which the knife can not be made.

    As Dave has often pointed out, it's not just the edge but the whole blade that is asymmetric. I too have put lefty biased edges on some of my knives but I think this does little more than make me...

    I am left handed also. I don't notice a lot of difference between the 6 gyutos I have as far as steering or cutting goes. I stay away from the 90-10 righty biased knives, but 60-40 or even 70-30...

    Any recommendations for brands of kombu, the seaweed used in this broth, and katsuobushi, the flaked dried salted tuna? Anybody use the instant dashi powders or concentrates? Which do you like?...
