    i haven't tried the JKS 10k, but try the kitayama after the 10k stone, next time. i'd be interested to hear how it works for you, as i, like Dave, find that it works very well after a 10k (though i often follow my green brick with the Kit, too, and end there).

    What do you mean by "faux kasumi?"

    i'm assuming he means knives that have been machine frosted and polished. i had a Yoshihiro Blue wa-gyuto that had been frosted and polished to look like kasumi, beneath the kurouchi cladding. it looked much better after i took it to stones.

    That's cheap kasumi method from maker, I think. With cladding, no need for faux, can go real.

    Yeah- that. The frosted bead (sand?) blasted area between the kurouchi and the edge. I have a couple of Tojiro shirogami knives and a Zakuri with this finish.

    Abundance!

    But not easily replicated at home ... So go real on stone is just one option.


    Hide's videos, part of the process I think:

    Nice review! I've been eyeing one of those for awhile. I have one of there boning knives and have been very happy. I also removed that stupid faux kasumi sandblasted finish, but I noticed that it was much less obnoxious than the finish on the tojiro ITK (which was very rough and hid some very deep grind marks.

    Do you know's being used here? I'm guessing the '#1500' is some kind of polishing paste (diamond?) and the two bits of wood are probably on the soft stuff (balsa?).
