    Help me polish a honyaki

    When the grind marks and abrasions are removed from the surface of the knife (surface is more uniform), then refinished with hazy kasumi finish, the reactivity is significantly reduced in my experience. Did this with both of my Kato's and allowed a nice patina to reform. They are largely non...

    Help me polish a honyaki

    I can't confirm but suspect that they are using stones on the flat sections around the convex geometry, or simply using finger stones on whole blade. I don't see how you can create an even finish on a convex surface with using a flat surface. Either that or the stones need a concave surface...

    Help me polish a honyaki

    It has been my experience that using a progression of sand paper up to #2500, then moving to finger stones achieves the greatest results. In effect taking a blade up to near mirror polish allows you to see any remaining grind marks or scratches and thus be able to remove them. Once that is...

    Depends on which Kato. The 270 suji WH is outstanding

    WTS 12.6" Demeyere Atlantis Proline 7-Ply Fry Pan (new)

    Out of curiosity, is the Silvinox treatment easy to maintain? Is cleaning the pans difficult? Can you use barkeepers friend on them? What about scratching and wear and tear over time? I am interested in these as new cookware but am worried that my family will abuse the pan and thus I should...

    Withdrawn Aizu (Found)

    Aizu is a good choice. Just be prepared to learn the stone. I was a bit disappointed at first with how slow the Aizu is to work up a slurry. Couple quick passes with a diamond plate and the Aizu is arguably the most useful natural stone around for Knives. Maybe ping @Badgertooth see if he...

    Pasta Sauce

    Thought I'd chime in on this. I'm an Irish American, that was fortunate to have married into a wonderful Italian family. My mother in laws "gravy" is lights out. Gravy is not marinara, rather that rich, dark dense sauce you will often find in old school Italian restaurants. The secret is over...
