    After using the one you sharpened for my saute cook, yeah I'd consider it this time. Maybe a suji.

    Wait. You're doing the thinning again? I thought you were through with that?

    Well I have done some lately but I have to get the customer's permission to leave it sort of crappily finished. You see the problem with doing thinning work on the Hiro AS's is the finish work it takes to remove the scratches from the crappy cladding is HUGE.

    Basically you have two choices here....1) Use fine belts to thin which doesn;t make deep scratches but takes forever and is easy to burn the edge...OR......2) Simply thin as normal and do your best to remove the scratches but ignore what can't come out. If you try to grind out the deep scratches you get from anything 120x or coarser you burn through the cladding exposing the core in spots. It's a no win here unless the purpose of thinning is performance over cosmetics and then it's worth considering.

    So yes I do thin them as long as you can live with some grind lines.

    Alright!

    For me, a matching set - petty 150 and 240 Gyuto

    I hope you get lots of interest!

    The lines were only visible upon closer inspection. Like, "Oh yeah, there they are, now I see what Dave was talking about." And really only those who know what work was done knew they were there. Most of the time the knife just looks so badass that you don't really notice it.

    But yeah, I want a suji!

    Yeah it's not very noticeable but it bugs me to have to make that sort of decision in my work and to have to mention it to the customer. The Hiro AS's are thankfully unique with this problem.
