    Unpopular opinions

    Aoto stones are overrated. Working with them is just cleaning mud or leveling stone!

    finishing at 1k?

    I agree with Benuser, I often go back to Chosera 3K after playing with Jnats - a few strokes for a sharp, aggressive micro bevel...

    finishing at 1k?

    I prefer to end White2 on a 3K stone (Chosera). The blade is pleasantly aggressive and the sharpness seems to take longer. I often keep playing and go to the Ohira Suita ...

    What are your opinions about the most respected knife? (Piece of advice for new comers)

    And when you find the best knife, it will only be the best of the knives that you had. Then you will think how many knives you haven't had yet - you haven't used ...... but you have two kidneys, and one is enough ;)

    What are your opinions about the most respected knife? (Piece of advice for new comers)

    Finding your favorite knives is not the same as finding the best knives. A knife is just a cover, then there is the whole book ... cutting technique and what you cut, board, sharpening, edge repairs, edge maintenance ... Many very good, sought after, praised knives require many treatments, many...
