    Yukihira nabe

    I'm not sure if everyone knows this pot but it's a traditional Japanese saucepot. My wife really wants one and I admit they look neat and feel nice in the hand. I've seen the Yoshikawa one in person and it's stainless. My problem is stainless doesn't exactly move heat around well or evenly and...

    WTS Naniwa aotoishi 2k for sale for Canadian buyers

    Up for sale is this stone. Probably not worth it to a US buyer. Stone is a few years old (bought from knifewear) and used lightly. Still 54.5mm thick and comes with original box. $90 CAD shipped in Canada. If outside of Canada we will work shipping out. This is a nice stone. Cuts as fast as my...

    Sigma power 1k & 6k

    Hi. I know there was a pass around on Sigma stones but that was their select 2 line. I'm curious about what people here think of these two stones if they've used them. I know they bring high praise from the wood working community but not much with the knife sharpening guys. I'm mostly curious...

    Cheap diamond plates

    Ok looking at ebay you can find some pretty cheap diamond plates. I found a set of three for $8. Now I know these aren't going to be high quality like atomas or DMTs but I was thinking of ordering them. I won't use for sharpening but I was thinking for slurry creation and possible flattening...

    cleaning a strop

    Hello all. I use a leather belt on my belt grinder for stropping and deburring after using the stones. It's currently loaded with veritas green chromium oxide and black from all the impregnated swarf. I'd like to get it clean like new and try some diamond or CBN. I'm not sure how to clean...

    Carbonext gyuto

    I know these knives have been discussed a lot here but I have a couple questions. Are they really as easy to sharpen as carbon blades? I know that's a loaded question because some carbon knives don't sharpen so well but on average. Also I'm under the impression jknives are superior not only for...

Not sure if there'll be duties to ship to america but the shipping rate is a flat rate to Canada or the States.
