    Serious Project: Maboroshi thinning

    of the coarse stones i've tried they all wear fast if they remove metal fast. the only exception is the 500 double thick glass. its relatively slow wearing yet very fast. also you can use the 220ies with lighter pressure but then they wont be really fast imo. maybe a coarse or medium SiC...

    the 3k cerax/ouka is very nice for kasumi if you want some contrast but still refined and smooth scratch pattern imo.

    Cheapest Project knife

    i saw a vid dao vua posted. they basically put the very edge into charcoal so the lowest few millimeters get glowing, then dunk it in water or oil or whatever. and its seems that was basically it. quite questionable HT if you ask me. i'd say it would make a very bad project knife, unless the...

    Serious Project: Maboroshi thinning

    the hc is only available in 4/6/8k they are gray. just as hard. polish a step or 2 above their stated grit (the white stones don't polish anything at all). is a little slower on all steels. both the gray and the white stones does all common steels. its mostly bs this carbon/alloyed steel...

    Looking for a 210mm gyuto from an European shop

    that it looks the way you want. the AS hinouras from CC are stainless clad if you want SS.

    Serious Project: Maboroshi thinning

    only the 500 is available in double thick =10mm but its more like 12 mine was at least.. also my 220 glass was 7-8mm, not 5mm i'd say a 220 glass will last about as long as a 220 pro. give or take.

    it doesn't exist. the coarse stones are faster because they release more abrasive. maybe king 300? the shapton pro 120 is also very fast.

    i would get the juuma 2k instead. it does everything the bester does but a bit better imo. and its thicker, and maybe a bit cheaper too.

    Another WA handle

    also if this is an oily/fat wood you might wanna clean the holes with brakeclean before you fill up with glue. glues dont adhere well to oils and fats. try it on a scrap piece first.

    dont know to be honest. the epoxy will probably be more durable in the long term. thinking heat/cold/chemicals/oils etc.

    Here is my little review of the bester 2k its a soaker. very hard. release little or no abrasive. doesn't feel super nice and creamy but not bad. no problems with powder SS. if very very careful it can create a fairly good kasumi contrast. usually it removes all contrast though! (can be seen in...

    sand off some wood dust with fine sand paper, then mix with CA or epoxy and fill the holes.

    asking for some advice to restore some old(?) knives

    if you have a flat surface and its actually not really flat you can either make it truly flat with stones/sandpaper, or if you dont have the time or the will to make it flat, you can use sandpaper, but just rub the blade with it. i usually fold the sandpaper a few times so there is some flex...

    asking for some advice to restore some old(?) knives

    you probably want something hard backing the paper. otherwise you will create a concave or convex surface on the steel. and then when you move onto stones it will come out quite bad since your stones are flat.

    asking for some advice to restore some old(?) knives

    depending on how flat the surfaces are you might want to start out with something way coarser than a 1500. 220 or 500 or so. or sandpaper.

    you can also simply wrap sandpaper around a flat stone, put in the stone holder, and just grind away. this is best done dry. 180 is a good starting point. 80 and 120 might wear out too fast and/or create too deep scratches.
