Good Day All,
I'm Brian from Singapore. I have a few questions to ask, so please pardon me:
1) Besides chuboknives, are there other websites that provide international free shipping/affordable shipping?
2)I'm looking forward to buy a Honesuki online, however there are too many brands to choose from therefore could someone kindly advise please. I'm left handed and do not have a particular preference in handles. My budget is maximum 300USD including shipping if any
I have short-listed a few Honesukis:
Takeda AS 150mm
Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef 150mm
Tojiro DP 150mm
Hattori HD 150mm
Am open to any other brands as it would be my first Honesuki
3) Have read reviews elsewhere and seen a lot of people not favoring the VG-10 for a stainless knife. Why?
4) I have gotten very interested into sharpening, currently I have the Naniwa Superstone 1000/5000/10000/ 800(Chosera), are there other brands that I should look out for and should I progress to a higher grid?
Saw quite a few regarding Shapton stones, but do not know what is it like, could someone please enlighten me?
Thank you all so much for your help!
