    Hi. I am looking for a laser gyuto recommendation.

    @josemartinlopez care to explain why is a great steel? Sharpenability, edge retention, something else? Also he forges for many "brands" like hitohira, Konosuke, jns, and a long list. What line are you referring to?

    Inclusions on stone

    Thank you @M1k3 I'll research where I can buy stuff to seal it and probably will come back before applying to see if I have the right idea.

    Inclusions on stone

    That sounds good @M1k3, the stone has lacquer on the sides, looks like a thin layer. Is that enough or I should I use something else? I've seen people using some kind of string or textile around.

    Inclusions on stone

    Thank you @tgfencer, that gives me a bit of relief. The large line on one side of the stone runs across the middle, the smaller inclusion on the other side I'd say that I can work around it as is close to a corner. I just left home atm, but I'll try the stone tomorrow and check as you advised.

    Inclusions on stone

    Hi I have 0 experience with natural stones and went and bought my first one, is an Aoto and when I received it today I noticed sand/ glass particles on the surface of both sides. One side is a big line with more particles than the other side, my question is: Can I still use it? Or is just not...

    First re-handle

    I used the gorilla brand 5min epoxy and takes muck longer to dry than the 5min, I removed before was rock solid, But if I was to leave it I would have ended up with that problem for sure.

    First re-handle

    Thank you for the tip Tim, do you think I can still do it or is not much thickness left to work on? It doesn't bother me much but they are a bit out, good eye.
