CN santoku and JCK combo whetstone ordered from Koki today, im quite qurious about the stone. Koki claims they are smoother then Bester and King and they have a nice price. (Dad is getting one as well as i broke one of his :rolleyes2: ).
Hopefully the postman doesn't bring a customs bill with the package. I got hit up with one of those recently for a non-knife purchase. I had ordered from the vendor many times with no problem, but it looked as if customs just did a random inspection and deemed my package to warrant a duty.stuck in customs, aperantly they enjoy cooking to...
Ditto to what everyone has said about the FKH. My first J-Knife was a FKH 210mm Gyuto, which is easy to sharpen and takes a keen edge. Just make sure you cut some medium rare beef early on to set a solid patina.Be patient! My last purchase sat in customs longer than the rest of the trip combined! No fees though.
I've got a FKH Suji on the way from Koki, my first carbon - its hard to be patient!
