    Korin Sharpening?

    Has anyone used Korin to sharpen their knives. I have a knife that hasn't had an edge put on it yet and was thinking about having them do it.

    I haven't in years, but they did an excellent job back then
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    I've had several done by Sugai-san. D&R would be my first choice though.

    I can vouch for Dave's skills having seen him work first hand during my training with him. He has a great setup and offers a variety of different levels of sharpness based on your needs.

    Interesting that this should come up...I JUST got a pair of knives back from Sugai-san (Thanks Mari!) on Monday...will do a write-up later today.

    Suisin INOX Honyaki 240MM Gyuto
    Masamoto VG 210MM Gyuto

    Already made a big bowl of fruit salad and did some dicing of japs-n-'maters.

    I have used Dave, (Jon...though only on an initial sharpening of a new purchase) and Mr. Sugai. I would not hesitate to use any of them. If you're fond of single bevels, Sugai-san does a very nice Uraoshi.
