    Ahhh....sorry for the delayed answer. The only reason I like it is because I can get a nice matte grey finish on the blade road. It's all cosmetic; never even touches the edge.

    Ahh I see. I may have to give it another run then. For my setup this would become a bridge between the bester 1200 and rika 5k before I finish with the kitiyama on yanagiba. For deba I usually stop at the rika. How do you work this in.

    On topic: Nice addition with the dvd. Very helpful starting out. It answered a lot of questions.

    The Beston 500x is what's missing from the set, we won't have them in until the New Year because some large US knife dealer bought up all the maker had. Sorry about that.
