    Very nice but... don't know if it's the way the photo was taken but that Shun looks scratched and chipped. Apologies if I'm wrong.

    @Marek07 Yes the Shun is indeed scratched and chipped. It is my first ever japanese knife and i have been using it for over 7 years now. I have to say even after all this time, I AM still an amateur to knife sharpening. Only recently bought a King 1000 for my daily sharpening.

    I'd be happy to give you free sharpening lessons if you want em and you're close by (I'm in Essendon).

    I also have a Shun from a decade ago that was all scratched up and chipped. You can fix em up real nice if you can spare a little time.

    The coarsest grit you have, basically.
    I sent you a PM with more details.
