Is that soap stone? Nice TF too 😂
Yes it’s soapstone. All my counters and island are in soapstone. Totally impermeable so no staining. Needs no finish and if you scratch it, get some sandpaper and sand it out. Great stuff.

Thanks re the TF. Happy with it. Whether it will cause me to sell a bunch of knives now is highly improbable.

I've been trying to talk my wife in to soapstone for a dozen years.

Finally got my Kochi Honesuki. After using it exclusively for a few days I have to say that this is one of the most versatile short knives I ever had 😊.
Wha? Honesuki? Versatile? Woah.

That choil shot is impressively thin for a honesuki.

My first true Japanese knife. My others are American makers of mono steel.

My initial impression is nice blade and sharp. Fit and finish of handle and bolsters is the complete opposite. I heard a lot about Fujiwara but if I were him I would be embarrassed to put my photo on the box this came in. I am just going to use it and I hope it performs better than it looks.
