    The 5000th stone recommendation thread

    Thanks @M1k3, I‘m sure I’ll figure it out, I know it’s not the stones. Apart from only using edge trailing these days, my method is the same as yours. I wonder if I dulled the knife too much and just got impatient. Entirely possible. How often do you use the naguras? And is it preferable to...

    The 5000th stone recommendation thread

    I'm doing something wrong. I dulled a Wusthof and put it on the JKI 1K until burrs etc. and then the 8K. Couldn't get it sharp. Took it to the SGs and sharp in minutes. I'll try again soon. Obviously pilot error, but any tips/quirks working with these stones?

    Looks great. And I just tried to wipe the water droplets on your CCK cleaver off my iPad screen. 😂

    Great advice from @Jovidah above. Re: stropping, I recently ordered the magnetic-backed kangaroo + diamond spray kit from CKTG (url will be obfuscated but it’s easily searched). I haven’t received it yet but heard good things here and on Reddit.

    I have used it and I like it. With stropping it gets things “standing receipt slicing” sharp. Maybe the 4k could too, haven’t tested that. The only thing I have to compare it to is a Norton combo 4k/8k and the feedback and speed are significantly better on the SG.

    🤣 It’s not good. And I haven’t even been to Korin yet.

    I swear I used to be good at food photography. 🤣 Chicken kathi rolls on homemade paratha from Ethan Chlebowski who @Michi introduced me to yesterday. Thanks again Michi!

    Thanks @inferno and @M1k3. I did notice the water beading but just rubbed the water into the stones with my hand which seemed to help. I’m assuming that after sharpening a few knives I have removed any coating. I love them, they are so fast and I love the feel compared to my previous setup. I...

    I went to MTC yesterday and now have six SGs (and JKI diamond 1K + 6K arriving Monday). Very likely redundant, but I got a couple of the SGs earlier in the week and was so impressed that I figured I should take advantage of the great sale. I sharpened a couple of my neighbor's knives today and...

    Roy Choi's Kogi Dogs are a favorite in our house. I make them with veggie dogs.

    Had not heard of this fellow. Great channel, thanks!

    The 5000th stone recommendation thread

    The triple Bs look great, but between six SGs and the JKIs I think I'm certainly set for a while. I'd never thinned a knife before, but I just had a go on a $100 Kohetsu (known by many names, see a previous post if interested) and it got ridiculously sharp very quickly. I was too lazy to make...

    Why @Knivperson, why would you do that to me? 😀

    The 5000th stone recommendation thread

    I just got back from MTC. Good sale + nice day for a ride on a vintage Honda + poor impulse control. I now have the 220, 500DT, 1000, 2000, 4000, 8000. They are so fast compared to what I was using previously. Also I reckon my DMT diamond plates are pretty worn out and after experiencing S&G...

    Not much to look at but I've been addicted to this hot & sour soup since discovering the recipe on Food & Wine a few months ago. I make it pretty much weekly. Lots of chopping and an excuse to visit the giant Chinese supermarket for ingredients like lily blossoms and the delicious sounding...

    I really appreciate the insights. I’m going to play with what I have for a while, as I’m already getting into gear that exceeds my skill and knowledge. But I am filing this away for the future. These SG stones are really nice. Thanks again!

    Thanks! Dammit. Now I want them all. I already have the 2K for the Wusthofs (assuming that’s what you mean by crap German). Most of my good stuff is white 2, AS, or 1095, so 6/8K might be worth a look. But I’d still love to know the benefits of these in addition to the JKI 1K+6K diamonds.
