    WTS Manaka western gyuto price drop

    I know what you actually meant, but this made me laugh too much. #AcidFlashbacks

    Sharpening..and knife lifetime.

    Personally I never got along with my Green Brick. Hate the feel, and loads up easily. If you’re looking for a 2000 grit soaker, then look no further than the Gesshin 2K. It has replaced my 1000 grit stone at home completely.

    Home Use Suji - Preferred Length?

    Great reading about your journey! Anything new on the horizon? Or at least any thing that caught your eye next?

    The collection

    Is it just the picture, or are the Konosuke handle installs crooked?

    Kurouchi or not.. what do people prefer?

    I agree, the river jump is a far superior knife. You don’t have to enjoy the aesthetics of the Yoshikane, but it’s been a highly regarded knife for years. You aren’t missing anything. Just a piece of hot garbage that cuts like a dream.

    Epicurean Edge Sale - Now thru Sat then big Sun/Mon

    I completely agree. While i do not prefer as tall as many here do, where 49-52mm is my preference, these are pretty short. Definitely usable, but usually get more action as a suji at my house.

    Kurouchi or not.. what do people prefer?

    My guess would be the Yoshikane Black dammy is an etchant, or something. I am no expert for sure, but from the Riverjumps/Unryus i have seen/held they look about as true Ku as you can get (Most definitely could be crazy wrong here, though. I know there have been conversations with makers on...
