Thread: Sharpening Before and After

  1. #1

    Sharpening Before and After

    I finally remembered to take pictures... this was for basic sharpening plus chip/broken tip repair. No refinishing (i.e. surface scratches on non-bevel areas were not cleaned up).

    Nice! Is the finish from the Takashima Awasedo?

    nope... its some other stones i have around here... a soft muddy middle grit one and a soft finishing stone (softer than the takashima)

    the edge on the yanagiba is the takashima, the edge on the usuba is the suita, and the edge on the deba is a tsushima.

    Nice work Jon. That usuba looked like a broken window on the edge...

    Looks like you did some 'refinishing' to me.
    Great job, Jon.
