Folks, I am a bit slow on getting these made and getting them out to the public. I was torn between getting a new piece of equipment - a camcorder (already have a digital SLR camera), or get a new smartphone with 4K video capacity. In the end, I went with the smartphone to keep things minimal, and now I am waiting for an attachment for my tripod to arrive so, so I could start producing these videos.
The goal of these videos is to demonstrate geometries that I offer, and also, on my blog I will talk about cons and pros of each. While I am at it, I will talk about my choices of steel, profiles, types of knifes, handle ergonomics, etc.
These are geometries that I use:
- Convex 1 (Carter)
- Convex 2 (Kato)
- Asymmetric Convex (Mizuno)
- S grind 1 (Shigefusa)
- S grind 2 (Koichi)
- Sword grind (Heiji)
- "Chisel" grind (single bevel with a hollow back)
I will post videos on my web site, but will link videos to this thread.
