    Unhappy people are the most sharing people in the world. There's no need to accept what they offer.

    Advice: introducing different coarse/med stones in my lineup

    King 800 Deluxe is the classic synthetic matt grey kasumi polisher. I'm not a fan of the Naniwa "Green Brick". Has a weird plastic feeling feedback and leaves a big mess of green pigment. As the swarth breaks down it will polish too a finer finish so i remember not achieving an even finish. Gave...

    Out of the stone loop

    Japanese Knife Imports Gessin 8000 is a soft feeling high grit stone. I tried one when I visited Jon a few years ago. I would have purchased one but it was out of stock at the time. It has a creamy feel and cuts very fast. If you like the feel of the Rika 5000 you will get similar feedback from...

    Good non stick fry pan

    Had to replace some pans when I got an induction range. Got a Madein cookware 10inch non stick frying pan(not ceramic or PTFE). Best non stick cookware that I've used, Use mostly for eggs and searing fish. After about a year and a half it still performs like it did new. Think I'll get twelve...

    Hurricane Lane

    Good news, looks like the hurricane is being sheared apart by high level winds. Still facing possible high winds and heavy rains in some areas but the chance of us being hit be hurricane force winds is much less probable after the latest observations.

    adding an 8000 stone

    I tried the Gesshin 8000 when I visited Jon last year. I really liked the feedback and the speed of the Gesshin 8000 and would have purchased one but it was out of stock at the time. I subsequently picked up a Kitayama 8000 and found it to be a pleasurable stone to use. Both of these stones...

    Single bevel gyuto

    This Sugimoto 270 and Naozumi 240 are both flat on the back and convexed on the front. The Sugimoto is actually very slightly concaved on the backside and has a 5mm bevel on the front edge. I put a micro bevel on the back side and they both hold their edge well in home usage. They don't seem to...
