Just curious what you like about them?
I'm finding it harder and harder to justify buying new knives but I've been neglecting my sharpening set up for a while and just making do so I was thinking about picking up a natural or two to replace my mid range kit; a broken shapton 1k, a very thin shapton 4k and a king 1/6k, which I like, though it's just a little small for cleavers imo. I'll continue to use a kitayama to finish.
At the moment the work kit is a mix of stainless and carbon (white 2, blue 1, cpm 154, mizuno stainless, gin-3) and all fairly high hardness, basically all cleavers with a few single bevels in there, though I'd like to slowly replace everything in the kit with carbon. With that in mind, do naturals work better with certain steels or geometries i.e. single vs double bevel. Is there any notable difference in the end result or is it purely the aesthetics of the finish?
Cheers in advance,
