    Installing my new work shop

    So I have a small collection of knives, a small collection of knives, I enjoy sharpening, next step: making my own knives! I have never done this, so I believe I can do this (some people will get the reference here ;)). I am handy, I have patience, I can work meticulously and I think it could be...

    SOLD [EU] Shapton set 220/Glass 500/2000

    Not much introduction needed, these are well-known quality stones. Thickness is still 16 mm / 11 mm / 16 mm so almost like new, just broken in. These come freshly lapped and with the original box for the two Pro stones. To make shipping worthwile I'd like to keep these stones together as a set...

    WTS [EUR] Shoubudani Suita Aka renge

    This was my first "expensive" JNAT, so I wanted to get a good one and asked Shinichi Watanabe for a good finisher. He recommended me this stone, a relatively soft suita, easy to work with, beautiful stone also with the deep purple renge. It's quite big, 170 mm length, a very practical 80-85 mm...

    SOLD [EU] Aizu

    This is an old stone I picked up from Japan auctions. It is a good sized stone, very clean and pure. I was hoping it would be a midgrit stone, but in fact it is fine, quite hard and slow, so very much a finishing stone and I have already many options for that. The original seller (tontiyan50)...

    SOLD [EU] Cretan (oil)stone

    After reading the thread The Turkish oilstone matter I had to try one for myself. I ordered directly from the quarry in Crete. When ordering you cannot choose the size, only the weight, which is kind of strange. So I got this quite huge stone 202 mm x 102 mm, thickness 32-36 mm. This stone is...

    SOLD [EU] Big Natsuya

    I bought this huge and beautiful Natsuya recently from @Froztitanz , a member here who knows much more about JNATs than me. I don't enjoy sharpening on it, I don't like the feel, it feels hard and sandy at the same time if that makes sense. It must be a personal thing because the seller assured...

    SOLD [EU] Ikarashi

    Nice Ikarashi, about 65-73 mm wide, 195-200 mm long and 46 mm thick, about 1370 gram. I bought it a few months ago from Ikkyu Japan and I'm now selling. I want to try out different stones but I can't keep them all, so I buy and sell again. This was advertised as a 1000 grit stone but I feel...

    SOLD [EU] Cerax 1000 & Rika 5000

    These are the first "real" sharpening stones I bought and I always enjoyed using them. Very nice feel and feedback. However I've switched mostly to naturals now and I don't like to keep stuff that isn't used. I think that at most 1 mm is gone, the Cerax 1000 is 27 mm and the Rika 22,5 mm thick...

    Hello from Belgium

    Hello guys and gals, my name is Wim, I live in Bruges, Belgium and somehow became a little bit obsessed with kitchen knives and other sharp things in general. I would love to state that I'm a hobby cook but truth is my wife does most of the cooking, but I enjoy assisting and I enjoy sharpening...
