    Cutting technique...

    rock chopping can be an efficient way to process some foods, but at the same time it can be a bit hard on the knife edge. In that case it might be better suited to using a German style knife with a thicker edge/lower angle that won't be damaged as easily as a thin hard Japanese blade/. don't...

    Why there are always stripe marks on kitchen knives

    mirror polish is better for expensive custom knife which has artistic value more than using knife. On a using knife it will show scratches easily. If you try to polish your knife after it has a handle and bolster you will not be able to reach the area near the handle.

    Knife Newb Questions ???

    The steel of the Henckels will hold an edge better with a 20 degree sharpening than it would if you sharpened at 15 degrees. It won't be hair splitting sharp but sharp enough to get the job done without having to be touched up constantly. Most home users would not notice any problems in normal...

    EKA of Sweden used to make an 8" chef knife in 12C27, it is thicker than the typical Japanese knife but also can take more abuse. Don't know if they still make it, you could do a search if interested. Both steels are still available and widely used by many knife manufacturers. Kershaw used...
