    Suerhiro Cerax 6K vs Suehiro Shiramine 6K

    yeah... in magnesia and resinoid stones, they are fired at lower terms and dies and coloring agents work. Ceramic stones are fired at higher temps, where those colors burn off. Chemical additions create color changes (i.e. cobalt for blue stones), and those chemicals tend to effect performance...

    Suerhiro Cerax 6K vs Suehiro Shiramine 6K

    Stop permasoaking without stones cracking

    it really depends on the type of binder they use with respect to how to dry them best. If they are resinoid stones, slowing down the drying process with a damp towel works well. If they are ceramic, ther's nothing to worry about. If they are magnesia, you're kind of boned already, as...

    Sadanobu 貞信 Unagisaki Restoration Step by Step

    just a few notes... the shinogi line is far too high for a knife like this. The bevel angle will be more acute as is, thus making this more brittle than it should be for the use of this kind of knife. Also, the back could have been saved a bit better. By flattening this much, you've...
