Thread: Takeda Hamono - An Inside Look

    Wow, while viewing for the 2nd time, and checking out the opening shot of the horizontal grinding/sharpening wheel, I realized I could take an old potter's wheel and set it up to do the same thing. It has a rheostat, enabling a wide speed selection, and it would be very simple to set up some type of grinding stone with a water drip, or just adhesive abrasives. Made my day!

    I love using my Takedas - really nice to use at home or at a friend's place - but no, I wouldn't use any of them in a work environment. Not because they're thin, in my opinion, because I have had no issues with flex/bending, brittleness, etc. It's just that I find the cladding needs a bit of babying compared to others. It oxidizes from moisture pretty damn quickly.

    There are stones on the market for these horizontal wheels, don't remember where I saw them but they weren't too expensive.

    Good gravy, someone mail those guys some respirators and earplugs. Sheesh.

    The black loogies are not a good sign, fellas.

    And it sounds like they are working in a tent next to a major highway.

    I love them as well, but I LOVE rough and rustic in most my obsessions lol I would have a full set if $$ where not an issue, and I'd be using them all the time

    Dave thanks for the Vid link

    I like the bottom die he has on his power hammer.

    I have a 240 gyuto that I do use occasionally at work. Oddly enough, I find that the cladding on this knife is the least reactive of any I have. Compared to a Moritaka or Watanabe, this thing is practically stainless. This is an older one, so maybe he switched cladding material somewhere along the line.
