    I am not sure whether I would use different stones for stainless than carbon - maybe in the case if the stainless is of low quality (soft german knives that may be hard to de-burr at times) I would...

    I have this one too since recently. I guess it needs some sharpening as it cuts just OK. The blade geometry is good, but I find the handle too chunky (for my rather small hands) what makes the whole...

    After 10 years with 1.6i Skoda Octavia we got Subaru Outback 2.0D CVT last autumn. I really enjoy driving it even if unpaved roads are scarce in Germany :)

    I had the stone for a while (I just tested it briefly) and really liked it. Surprisingly smooth feeling for 800 grit. Thanks to being on the softer side it leaves rather smooth finish without deep...

    If you were to do it all over again.

    It seems like many of us are in a never ending cycle of testing out different knives and our knife rack is never "finished". I have played down this game a bit since my loving wife started to show...

    I am a home cook and while I did replace 210 gyuto with 240 because I found the 210 a bit too short for slicing, my most used knife is Carter Funayuki 167 mm (which I love dearly). Had it been 180 it...

    Thank you Maksim. I have one question left - could there ever be a lighter version of Kato gyuto (like 'non workhorse'), or is the current design simply the way Kato forges his gyutos and does not...

    It seems that this thread would be a good place to ask the following question - are all Kato gyuto knives available via JNS designed as 'workhorse'? My concern is the weight as 270g is definitely...
