i have read many times, that some people like to remove their Naniwa Chosera stones from it´s cheap base but nobody gives a good answer to them.
I have removed three stones from it´s base without any damaging. Today i removed another stone from its base and made a tutorial video of it.
I've been sharpening knives for several years now but i have much problems with yanagibas. Most times i get some high/low spots at the bevel. How can i fix this spots? I tryed a #400 grit stone for one hour but it won´t work.
Maybe anybody has a good tip for me. Thank you very much...
