    The 7000MC I really do love, but I have to say the brother in law has managed to chip it up a bit. When I need to resharpen it is a fair amount more work than the 7000D. The last time he was over I...

    I never got to try the birch wood Miyabi but I also think they look really nice, and perhaps nicer than the 7000D/MC line. Really I wanted a 7000MCD in 240mm or larger but that is not to be sadly,...

    Your welcome. I will try and pull the post over here but I was running really late last night finishing this up. I am going to try and add more information to Dersnap.com over time just on stuff of...
  5. A Tale of Two Blades- Miyabi 7000D versus 7000MC

    I originally posted this on dersnap.com
    7000Dvs7000MC

    Basically it is a sort of comparison of the Miyabi 7000MC vs 7000D. I could not get clear answers originally when I was searching these two...

    I totally agree with you.
    For years I was sort of looking what machine to get. I had ECM in mind and then they had it at a new Media Markt here in Germany. Demo model, but never used. Of course all...

    So if I understand your basically on a Euro type base also (convex 2)? Torr who I got my tamper base from also said despite VST suggesting a flat base that a slightly bevelled base seems to work...

    That is a nice price. They have it on sale here for 200 euro which is still cheaper than I paid for my 7KD. I sort of wish I took the MC now also for the better steel.

    There is a WMF store here in Dresden who sells their kitchen/house stuff amongst German/Miyabi knives. They hired a special Japanese lady to sell the German knives because most the customers are from...

    I do agree function take first place I didn't mean it to come any other way. It is sort of also my little thing I dislike on the Miyabi blades. One handles, not real choices, second MCD series can't...

    Functionally I guess that works for you, but for looks on such an expensive knife it does not seem to fit. Still if your a pro working, who cares about looks.

    I tried many years back one of the KD series knives off one Chef I worked with. Thing was simply a work of art in every respect. Hard, I think he said a bit tuff to sharpen, sharper than I could...

    Ya I saw Dieter had them and sort of what got my interest. Maybe if there was an Usuba I could go for a smaller size, but not gyuto.
    That was also the thing that sort of bugged me about my 7000MCD...

    I agree the knife is more important than the steel. No questions there :) Still just curious as I see these metals popping up now of days.

    Interesting.
    Looking at the hardness it seems they can get pretty similar. I did notice a HAP72 that can hit a 72.
    I am more curious though in real life if anyone has compared similar knives with...

    HAP40 VS ZDP-189

    What is the difference between these two steels? I can see enough information on the ZDP, but even checking Zknives I could not find how it compares to HAP40.

    Anyone?

    cheers,

    So being a bit over cautious was the problem as I did not give enough pressure on the stones.

    I went back to the 1K with the magnifying glass as I could see the wire edge. Also I took it back...

    Another thing to note if stropping is that the weight on it should be almost the weight of the knife and likely a lot less.

    With a Straight razor it was always known that you used basically the...

    On a side note why didn't Miyabi ever make a 240mm in the 7000 MCD line. I have to say although I don't have that knife here anymore since I left Canada I really liked it. Can't recall any of these...

    So woke up this morning to a nice sunny kitchen. Fresh eyes also.
    Looked a bit closer and I am pretty sure there could be a slight wire edge. It is pretty hard to see, but I suspect its there. I do...
