    howdy from central Iowa

    Hey folks, nice place ya have here.

    I'm just another person who loves to cook and likes to own nice cooking accessories.

    I currently have a handful of individually purchased Henckels and also have a Shun Ken Onion. I also cut way too often on plastic cutting boards, which I assume has done a number on my knives over the years, and I have a shun electric knife sharpener and a chef's choice sharpener. Not sure if the electric sharpeners are able to be used on any knife, but I thought I read that the angle of bevel was different on the Shun... anyway.

    I am looking to start the knife swap out process since I know there are better ones out there. I have also wanted to learn to sharpen by hand because I know that is superior to electric sharpeners. I have an older Norton combo stone 4k/8k i think that may be too fine for knives, so I'll be on the lookout for something a little coarser.

    Thanks in advance for the many questions I'll ask!

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Welcome! It is a slippery slope you are approaching, however.

    Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it...
