    Well, I've got other knives, mostly carbon, and I'm always one to go for excess :)
    I ended up with more knives than I need, and knowing myself, I'll end up eventually with more stones than I need....

    Thanks for this advice. I actually do strop on leather with 1 micron diamond spray. I notice an improvement on the carbon knives, not so much on this Tojiro knife, like it's doing nothing.
    I'll get...

    So knives and tools seems to be having a sale of Naniwa stones. They don't have the 800 I was looking for, but I did just snatch a 1k at 20% discount. I assume/hope that one is just as good... ? ...

    If you don't play golf, then you don't play golf.
    Golf may be a better analogy - if after 7 years you still consider your skills not up to the standard you require - then maybe you would like to be...

    This has become a very interesting thread indeed. So after all this, and after reading other threads and looking things up elsewhere I'm tossing between Chosera 800 and 3K or JNS 1K and red Aoto...

    I heard they're not consistent, and that sometimes they come ok, whatever happens it will be good practice.

    I think I'll get a Sabatier - they're nice knives, carbon, soft enough, and reasonably priced.
    An expert (e.g. Carter) will always be able to do more with a given equipment - and since I'm not at a...

    I think the learning curve will be in developing muscle memory. After using Edge Pro for a while I think (hope?) that I've at least learned to identify a burr when I get one, although I'm still not...

    Don't think I will start with yanagis just now.

    Wow thanks, a lot of advice coming very quickly!
    Yeah, I know technique is most important, and it will probably take me a while, I'm basically a home cook, so my knives get to be used only so much....

    Starting freehand ?

    Hi All
    So after using Edge Pro for a while I'm thinking it's time to get into free hand. I've been doing free hand stropping with reasonable success so I may be ready for this.
    I don't have a cheap...

    I have one, I try to cut Sashimi once in a while, though I'm 100% sure that it doesn't turn out any nicer than what I would get with a sujihiki, probably because I don't really know how to cut, it's...

    I had polycrystalline which to my understanding produces a toothier edge ? I was certainly happy with what I had, so that's why I was asking.

    The description is like this
    The formulation uses De Beers™ synthetic diamonds, micronised into an octahedral shape for...

    Their mark up is indeed incredible - for example a Misono Molybdenum they sell on their web shop for £240 (380-400$), at JCK it's $134, that's quite a margin that no amount of taxes and customs can...

    apologies for the hijack, I just didn't think it would merit a thread of its own.

    I was mentioned earlier that some knives can be switched from right to left at the edge only.
    I would assume that this is only possible for knives that are symmetrically ground, and only the edge...

    I share the original poster's affliction with way too many knives for a home cook, and much too much money spent, past and future.
    BUT, I will never ever get into razors, this is one thing that just...

    CCK KF 2208 butcher knife 33-34 cm long. I don't even know why I got it, never used it. On occasion I'll take it out from the box, wave it around pretending I'm slaying a dragon and saving a damsel...
