    Burrfection version Naniwa pro sets

    There so many more lines: Gouken Kagayaki, Watoishi, Kurouto .. I can hardly find any info on them. tbh I'd just trust the "cholera" name.

    Burrfection version Naniwa pro sets

    Do you mean these two? I couldn't find them cheaper. How does Gouken Arata relate to Naniwa pro? Made by the same company, but why name change? Is it a different...

    Takeshi Saji 155mm petty/minigyuto (depending where you look) The handle is smaller then I'd like, quite short in fact. No distal taper, really, and that was a bit disappointing. Kinda sharp spine .. to be honest, expected that rounded. ... that said, excellent at cutting softer stuff, this is...

    Burrfection version Naniwa pro sets

    You might find quite a bit of support here for that. There are a lot of people complaining about certain youtuber, but no one really steps up to do their own content. That might not be enough, ryky says he's not an expert all the time. ... back on subject of these stones. I really looked, and...

    Your favourite Semi-/Stainless Knife

    Shibata Kotetsu Bunka, though doesn't need to be a bunka as all of them perform great for my tastes. Shockingly, second place goes to my Dalman 275 just because it's a touch large to and 180mm is more often what I need.

    Kurosaki Raijin/Fujin... Good or Gimmick?

    I really liked my Fujin vg10. One of the prettiest knives I've ever owned (granted list isn't that long). VG10 is good here, don't listen to haters. It's quite thin behind edge and light. Concave grind, no real flat spot, just a nice continuous curve, if you like that, you'll love it.

    That's an excellent job, very pleasing shape, I love the handle too.

    How did you get here? On this knife journey that is.

    After 10 years of using the same 5.5" cheapo knife I finally decided to "splurge" and get a good knife ... I remember thinking "it can't possibly be that complicated". Being obsessive, all the nuances really drew me in, I was frustrated by lack of coherent information, lots of conflicted...

    I'm genuinely interested in what you think. It seems like a better looking competition to Shibata 180 bunka? Congrats! That thing is gorgeous! Looks to be 55mm ish tall? Is it O1?

    looking for glass or granite for sandpaper

    I used an oversize glass tile for a kitchen backdrop ... sample too, so half price or smth. Used carpet tape to attach sandpaper to both sides (cut from 12x12 sheets). It worked shocking well ... and didn't feel horrible. In fact, the carpet tape provided some buffering and it altogether wasn't...

    Pass Around: Cris Anderson 245mm gyuto, Nitro-V

    The knife is on the way to the next destination as of this morning. Here are some thoughts, though take it with a grain of salt as I expected to really like it .. and I did. I'm also coming from relatively budget side of knife world, previous 'best cutters" being Shibata Kotetsu 180 and Dalman...
