I don't understand Japanese but maybe the attachment change is to accommodate a single bevel? But I've never been a fan of these pull through sharpeners at all..

How come nobody is playing "name that knife!" yet? I can't narrow it down enough.:poke1:

video is too blurry to read
It's not too blurry....
It's from KAI, obivously since it's an ad from KAI.
関孫六 銀寿 本鋼 和包丁 出刃 :headbang:



It's a blurrier picture, but that's what on the deba in the video... Well, an older version of the knife.
The new one has english next to the kanji

Ah, late to the party. I would have recognised that guy anywhere... he lives on TV screens in my local Isetan department shop selling all kinds of Kai products. I bought a manual whetstone from them once...

I use it to sharpen my letter openers now.

But only because I don't want the opener to become too sharp.

while i love the idea that East is exactly like West, i don't understand why anybody who uses a single bevel knife would be a target market? on the other hand, it probably gives reasonable results it's used properly. i would be comfortable doing brain surgery (assuming i had the knife skills) with my knives but that isn't, let's face it, really necessary for most people. hell, i dull the knives that i let my girlfriend use, because she is scared of them. that device would be perfect!

In the last 2 years, supermarkets here have started selling japanese style knives. But they likely have no faith in the local demand, hence have flooded the market with cheap versions.

We are talking about nasty thin steel, stamped out in the shape of yanagibas, debas, santoku etc. Single bevelled, double bevelled... and the prices start from as low as $18-30. So in these department stores, the high end knives with promoters are Henckles and WMF... Perception is reality.

I was using a masamoto 270 gyuto the other day, and my colleague was like, why are you using such a cheap knife? I gave him "the look".

Haha that's very true. Even most chefs over here perceive the big german brands as the top end knives. I get looks for using my Hiromoto at work...From people whose best knives are mirror polished WMFs which prolly cost twice as much as mine...
