    Sharpening Strokes...

    Angling the body to the stone; and most pros adopt stationary stances, although it might or might not be angled to the stones. I still like angling the stone: sometimes makes up for either space deficit, shorter lengths blades, or blade to handle problematic configuration for regular strokes...

    Sharpening Strokes...

    Funny, the only time I breached the tooth or general scratch pattern orientation subject, people were like 🙄 and looking down on the post with half amusement, half condescending replies. Will be eager to see this thread evolve.

    Best blacksmiths for blue #2 heavy workhorses

    At first glance they would, but add CAD exchange, shipping, customs and Tosho isn't so off. But in my book, that's like twice too expensive anyhow. 200-250$ CAD is my spending limit on a less than 180mm and 40mm high blade. Just not worth it for my use. Just not worth it anyhow so I HAVE to...

    Best blacksmiths for blue #2 heavy workhorses

    Indeed... Thought you might like it but you didn't. What can I say...? Except I do not chip thin knives. I got one Tak from BST that came to me chipped though. Listed that way, no harsh feelings. Nothing SG500 wouldn't handle in a couple swipes I believe but it still cut well and I sold it...

    Doesn’t happen to me, but I’m still bowing to one that CAN cut straight down AND up. That’s 180* twisting as you go. Wicked. 😉🙃😊

    You’re evil. Edit: and while it will be a petty review - like I’m going to be an ******* to Wakui - it’s still the Gyuto I purchased. Ahem… the KKF member purchased. And will review. I’m the buyer… shite… narrator.

    Best blacksmiths for blue #2 heavy workhorses

    No one answered the "Is Wakui B#2 good/workhorse/whatever what?" So after pouting for a while, decided to leave the routine story. The illness story. Once upon a time, a KKF member promised himself not to buy iron clads anymore. He broke that promise since... twice. Not so long after, the...

    It was a good sale. 😥

    SG 500 and Similar...

    As @Steampunk said, not a favorite for convexing, although it is possible to get good polish consistency there using very minimal pressure and rocking the angles slowly. Long strokes, of course, but probably most important with a convex on a hard stone. Polishes very well on a flat bevel. Also...

    Which popular knife brand did you absolutely hate?

    Indeed... Ho/Walnut : 🤮

    Takamura VS Miyabi? Help me decide

    Aogami Super is within the line of Blue steel - which are rather high alloyed Carbon steels. They are all pretty reactive, although by no means so difficult to maintain. Super easy to sharpen. AS is loved for its usually better edge retention and higher hardness against other Blue iterations...

    Takamura VS Miyabi? Help me decide

    S. Tanaka is all fine... But needs be to take some cues in: -OP seems inclined to rock chopping -OP prefers more weight wherever its balanced at - although he isn't aware I guess of extremely blade forward Wa handle configs in saying that. -OP listed choices that are Yo handles -I would guess...

    Takamura VS Miyabi? Help me decide

    Ok. FC-61 - pretty much stainless - easy to sharpen - about toughest conventional Stainless steel period. Chromax - low alloy tool steel even easier to sharpen, almost stainless. SG2 - refined SS steel with better edge retention, much harder to shapen, very stainless. Or rather: Miyabi...

    Takamura VS Miyabi? Help me decide

    Don’t look at steels. Nor brands. Nor grind. It’s a matter of confusion. Rather, look at profiles and handles. Pick one that just seeing it you beg to use it. Don’t pick the one that seems « as nice » but somewhat puts you off, for bad reasons like you’re probably not knowledgeable enough to...

    Full Review: Mazaki Migaki 210mm

    I wouldn’t be surprised you get better release if your unit is thicker but also more convexed towards the edge. Choil shot of mine pretty clearly shows that attempt at convexity becomes null last third of the grind towards the edge. It becomes straight and flat there. And many foods suck to it...

    Takamura VS Miyabi? Help me decide

    Breakdown: FC-61/13c26/AEB-L are stainless steels from ingots. Steel was designed to be as close to Carbon steel keeness/ease of sharpening while being stainless. Intended for razor blades. Stainless is barely achieved - they are prone to some very mild oxidation against higher alloyed...
