Thread: Heiji — appreciation and assistance

    Heiji — appreciation and assistance

    I have wanted a Heiji for some time, and just got around to getting two of them, one from Jon and one from the forum. Great knives!

    I particularly like the large bevel on each side, almost like a traditional Japanese knife, but with two bevels. And thus two questions:

    - could I sharpen the knife, with Jnats, just like a single bevel, that is, flush down on the bevel to the stone?

    - what other gyutos out there have this pronounced wide double bevel? Really like it!

    you can totally sharpen it like a single bevel, but on both sides. However, i would use a microbevel with this particular steel.

    similar wide bevel knives in my inventory include kochi, zakuri, gesshin uraku kurouchi white #2, gesshin kagekiyo, gonbei hammered damascus, and probably some more i am not thinking of right now. However, most similar to Heiji in terms of the way the edge is done might be kochi and hinoura-san.

    Thanks, Jon. Also recently got two Kochis from you, and they are, indeed close — particularly for the money. Wish you had more of the stainless kurouchi clad available! Will check out the others...

    Despite having a bunch of totally competent knives and a severe dread of international shipping prices from the USA, I think I'm going to snag a Kochi when the next shipment comes in if I'm fast enough.

    Jon has been posting Kochi teaser pics via social media and instagram....I certainly hope he expands the Kochi lines.
