    I have had great success using diamond films like fingerstones. Even with diamond, though, high hardness steels, such as the hagane on a yanagiba, are tough sledding. And a higher polish, such as 8K,...

    I own that exact knife and love it. It's manufactured in Japan and in an entirely different league than the Artifex line, of which I have no experience. Small enough to work in hand but with the...

    Holding it against the end of a wall might give you a better glimpse into blade geometry. The end of the box is quite narrow. Either way, I have a 360 which isn't perfectly dead straight but nowhere...

    Everyone talks about soft stainless. And, yes, it has a low hardness. But it can be very abrasion resistant and a bear to grind. Then, after you've put in all that work, the edge folds like cheese....

    The problem is that even soft stainless can still be very abrasion resistant. For any sort of rebeveling or chip repair an Atoma 140 should be considered mandatory. I start with that whenever...

    Arty<> I contacted Gerber wrt steel used in their Balance Plus line of kitchen knives. They told me it was either 440A or 420HC. The only one with 440C was the Yan-Su.

    Cheers,

    So you're the one who snaked that Shimatani 240! I waited a hair too long and it was gone. Glad you like it. How do you like the blade height?
