"We are currently in the process of transitioning our Yoshihiro knives to Gesshin Uraku."
With everything else I'd read, that line is part of what was tripping me up. I couldn't tell if he was renaming them, or what, since he was talking about how they'd come up with the name for "Gesshin". That made me think maybe they were renaming the line to make it more personal. But the quality control had me thinking they were replacing it. Then, the part about them getting rid of the brand and making Gesshin instead was making me think there was supposed to be no such thing as Yoshihiro anymore. So him talking about "other people making Yoshihiro" was making me worry I'd gotten a knockoff or something. Anyways, thanks.
-something coarser or finer along with the 2k?
But really, I'm 99.999% getting the 2k regardless, and then I'll just pile more on there if needed.
2k is a great stone. what stone would you use before the 2k? what stone would you use as finishing stone? what types of steel are you sharpening?
I also have two that are VG-10, and will probably need the most attention.
the 1k side of that shun stone is actually pretty decent...i recently sharpened several shun elites. i used gesshin 400>gesshin 1200>gesshin 4k progression and i was pretty impressed with the edge i got. i do love gesh 2k on stainless though.
