    UK Knife sites

    Hi All

    Stumbled across these sites the other day: www.blok-knives.co.uk and http://cuttingedgeknives.co.uk

    The Blok knives look interesting - anybody got one yet ?

    I remember a few members pointing out how similar the Blok knives are to Cut Brooklyn. Not a fan of either to be honest. The other place, well the Masakage Yuki knives are priced about the same as a few other N. American vendors so I guess they are priced pretty well for a UK place. They're out of stock though

    If you are in the uk looking for customs check Catcheside cutlery.

    Blok joined here briefly, I'd be interested to try one but would feel a bit like a fake cut Brooklyn than a custom knife.
    Cutting edge use too much hyperbole for me.

    On this topic, can anyone point me to a place to get good stones from, in the UK? I can't seem to find anything other than diamond stones and king combis for a reasonable price

    I have used:

    http://www.edenwebshops.co.uk/en/ct/...ing-stones.htm

    Not sure if they are actually based in the uk or somewhere else in eu but it doesn't make a difference. No additional large post cost and fast service. Good for choseras.

    Ah, great. Do you know what their own brand stones are like?

    What about somewhere to get second hand knives from? I can only think of ebay but you can't sell knives on ebay.co.uk anymore.

    They still do, but I've heard their stones aren't all that great, anyone able to speak up for them?
