Question for those following, how often do you have to use Bar Keeper's Friend or something similar to remove rust? I find that my Fujiyama gets a bit rusty after each use even if I'm wiping it every onion I go through.

I grind up a bit of soft stone and use a felt pad with a little bit of water or tsubaki oil.

You just made me want a HSC right there
I have 3 HSC knives and I can’t say enough great things about them. Harbeer always hits the sweet spot on heat treatment, fit finish, material selection, etc where you end up with a top performing knife at a great price. My favorite is a 230 mm magnacut gyuto I recently purchased from him

No disrespect, but there’s no way it’s rusting if you’re wiping it as much as you claim.

Edit: are you rinsing the knife when you’re finished and wiping it dry? Or are you cutting onions and just wiping?

Smedja Aspen 26c3 honyaki mirroring the white skies. Polished off some of the higher patina, which wasnt really blue, just kind a like a film of light yellow. Went a bit too low on one side. But still, never seen patina like this on my other knives. Maybe it's the mirror polish and steel.
