    Knife identification - Tetsujiro gyuto

    Stone collection, next step in usage (and possibly purchases?)

    This is a long-ish stone multiple part question, partly to gather my own thoughts, but also to get any feedback from you wonderful experienced people. I am an amateur and mainly sharpen my own knife so unless I do something stupid I don’t expect any one stone to be worn out in my lifetime. The...

    Munetoshi Kiritsuke Gyuto, how's the tip?

    Since I do like my Munetoshi 165mm Petty from JNS (the mini Gyuto), I've also started looking at a bigger knife in the same style. JNS also sells two different gyuto styles, regular and a kiritsuke style. Do anyone have experience with this k-tip version and can comment on it? I mainly think...

    Possible scam?

    I've been contacted by e-mail by a person calling himself Austin Mc****** from Groupbuilder / Cultural Media claiming to be some sort of advertisement salesman for KKF and wanting me to advertise here. The whole conversation gave me a bit of a strange vibe. Is this an official campaign of KKF...

    JNS 6000

    I'm looking for a JNS 6000 Matukusuyama stone, and before I shell out for a new one I just want to check if anyone here has one for sale? I'm based in Sweden, so inside EU is an advantage for tax reasons.

    Gosh darn

    I just realized that I have more knives than I'll ever wear out. And stones of sufficient quality not to replace any before they wear out.. which again will take many years. Time to cancel my paypal account before I buy more stuff? :scratchhead:

    I just wanna say

    I just wanna say that learning to sharpen a japanese knife on a whetstone is really really fun. It takes a little while, but is pure meditation. Working with your hands Getting results. Mindfulness. And you end up with a screaming sharp edge *looking at bandaid on thumb*

    I'm new to this game, but I'm starting to learn to sharpen some carbon steel knives on whetstones. However, I just saw Benuser write this in another thread (that I don't want to derail): Since I actually have a VG-10 knife that have not yet shown to the stones, perhaps someone here can...

    Ohishi, the brand or the company

    When I started getting into J-knives I was quite oblivious to brands - I couldn't tell the various japanes words from each other and didn't really know the difference between famous blacksmiths, factories, "normal brands" or store brands. I'm slowly getting there by googling and reading and ...

    You'd think.... people are stoopid

    You'd think that if you were a scammer trying to fool someone by replying to a WTB ad, then you'd use a clean e-mail address. Now when I got a PM saying "contact me by e-mail", the first google hits of the e-mail adress were to other forums where the same e-mail was used in attempted scams...
