    Takashima Awasedo Videos

    Here are a couple of videos we shot yesterday with our Takashima Awasedo:

    On stainless/semi-stainless:


    On carbon steel:


    Enjoy.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks Jon,
    Enjoy using this natural stone, esp. with carbon knives. It is the most used stone at home.
    Unlike my father-in-law's old natural stones which he used to sharpen tools, the Awasedo achieves good results quickly with my kitchen knives

    I'm absolutely loving this stone.
    Leaves a cool misty finish, a toothy edge and it produces a pleasant scent while sharpening.
    In short, I'm looking for excuses to break out this stone.

    I've had some people ask for a closeup shot of what the finishes look like, so here's an example on blue #1... this was a quick sharpening, so please excuse the lack of dark color at the top of the bevel

    I am interested in this stone as final finish for my kitchen knives, but I am wondering if I can go from the Chosera 3k straight to the Takashima Awasedo or is that to much of a leap?

    It should be just fine... you will need to spend a little more time on the takashima than you would if you did a smaller jump, but no reason why it wouldnt work. What kind of knives are you sharpening?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I also have the Chosera 5k, but I am not very happy with this stone, therefore my question. I will be sharpening Blue, White and C105, so only carbon steel. My stainless knives only get a 3k finish + chromium oxide.

    just curious what you dont like about the chocera 5k (FWIW, I love the 3k too)

    Anyways, the takashima should work just fine on those steels coming from the 3k... a little extra time, but not too much. The stones cut pretty fast all considering.

    Yes, the 3k is a great stone with very nice feedback and that's the problem with the 5k. I get no feedback at all from it. Works very well, but it's just no fun, if you know what I mean.
