    Photosensitivity in Natural Stones

    Nice thread, I may have to research my coticules more and see what they are. Boight several slurry stones and they seem to be a couple variants. Two turned dark brown like yours.

    Magnetic knife stand?

    Thabks for the picture! I do like that design. Never messed with epoxy in that way before. Going to have to do a lot of planning for one.

    Magnetic knife stand?

    Who here has made one? I'm not new to making magnetic knife racks, but a stand seems like a different beast due to the size. I'm thinking of making a 16"x12" For anyone that has made them, how did you go about it? Was just thinking of using a solid 1" thick board cutting a long thin strip off...

    Agree, just is a natural combination. Here's mine.

    Have you ever seen a blade this long?

    Surprised that sold for that much considering its only a 12" cleaver that someone put a longer handle on. I have a 14" bladed hog splitter.

    Knife Shipping

    Just don't throw them in a box like some people. It amazes me that some people don't care about anything once they get your money, and just toss your items in a box. If its anything decent I wrap it in plastic wrap and/or put cardboard around the blade. I shake my head everytime I've spent...

    13 inch, nogent, F.Dick chef's.

    I think so. Being an F. Dick sure did help though. This brand name seems to be one of the more collectible.

    13 inch, nogent, F.Dick chef's.

    I was watching this as well out of curiosity. Unique seeing a nogent F. Dick. IMO sold for a lot more than I was expecting. Lots of deep pitting on that contrary to what the seller says. If it wasn't an F. Dick I'd expect half that price.

    I can't believe I won this auction.

    Ha! I never even realized that! I'm now confused and looking up the same thing with no luck.

    I can't believe I won this auction.

    I can feel your pain. I bought a lot on the bay a while back that I paid way more than I should have. Photos were horrible on listing, seller used a bench grinder on all the blades, every handle was split on opposite side of what was shown in photos. I was so disgusted I threw them all back in...

    Removing small amounts of rust on nicer blades

    Here's my secret. Coconut oil cloths used for cleaning. This was a blade I just got today. About 1 minute of scrubbing. Could probably 95% remove the rusting if I kept going longer.

    Umm, huge compound bevel on Harukaze?

    Yeah, I'm going to try to send them back. I looked at the gyuto again and its just god awful. I saw some on the bay(same thing different "brand" and they looked like micro bevels.

    Umm, huge compound bevel on Harukaze?

    Well that sucks, looks like I'll be avoiding them in the future. Thanks for the reply.

    Umm, huge compound bevel on Harukaze?

    Am I being completely ignorant on this? I purchased a Harukaze gyuto and nakiri in Aogami Super. They both are ground with what I personally would call a huge compound bevel. I know these are cheaper knives but this just seems ridiculous. Is this just how they come?

    Bizarre (to me) Japanese Knife

    As was said, its a skinning knife. I've seen them referred to kawahagi? Somewhat similar to western skinners.

    Breaking a handle off

    I've had luck crushing the handles in a vise and splitting them too. Rotate it the opposite way in your pic.
