    Ah cool, I'll be bugging you for feedback on that stone- its on my shopping list

    Any reason for changing the honesuki? I'm the process of making one after forging the blade before Christmas and want the edge to be 99/1 so I can skim the bones as close as possible without catching. Will be something I experiment with too though

    I will let you know how it goes ...

    I just don't like the 99/1 on the honesuki so I will change the edge geometry. If it doesn't work out it won't be a big deal. I just got a small double bevel deba that will handle the same jobs as the honesuki - at least that is what I hope. Tomorrow I will test my new little beast on a couple of chickens

    I've messed with the bevels on my Fujiwara honesuki for the last 1.5 years, and have settled on what looks to be a 75/25 ratio....it works great for all its intended tasks, and it is a great petty to boot. Turned out to be a very versatile little knife.
