    That sounds probable. I've got Shapton pro 120 and 130 that I don't love, but have used a lot to spare my old 400 plate. If those don't move some steel I'll bite the bullet.

    Wow, that's a looker!

    Looking forward to hearing how it performs in the kitchen.

    Haven't used it much yet, I like it but that handle has to go! May be a good candidate to test out my first handle build.
    Nice... in general I'm not a fan of ho wood handles either, but it can help bring the balance forward for lighter and/or shorter blades. Some people really like the added grip when the grain raises a bit when wet.

    I'm really curious how heavy those red ebony handles are. Are they lighter than reg ebony?

    My only reference is the Tanaka Ginsan Migaki with a black ebony handle and compared to that I'd say the red ebony is lighter.
