    I used to rely on the Mac black before. Worked very well.

    Welcome to the forum by the way. You're not going to fine a lot of Shun love here, but I also have the 8.5 chef's knife as well as the slicer and honesuki. All of which I very much enjoy.
    Cheers!

    I second for DMT. $200 is several times over what a good ceramic rod sells for.

    If you keep yours in your kitchen drawer, check the length. Idahone also makes a 10" version that fits nicely in an in-drawer knife block.

    I usually just strop on baby unicorn skin sprayed with Medusa tears. Works for me.

    Medusa tears? Dude, that's hard core. Do you have to wear gloves or just give it a couple of weeks for the skin to grow back?
