Re: Determine Ceramic Stone Grit?

I'm still can't wrap my head around why when refreshing the same knife on my 1500 stone is very difficult to get any slurry and the 3000 stone I get it right away. Is not the 3000 double the coarseness of the 1500 stone? Where does the expensive 1500 stone fit in my sharpening "routine"? The Debado...

Re: 210 gyuto workhorse and 240 upgrade recommendation

$135 Kanehide PS60 Gyuto 210mm (Out of stock)
$205 Masakage Yuki Gyuto 240mm

Combined these are within your budget, easy maintenance, easily sharpened and both are great performers.

Re: Looking for a shallow egg pan

That deBuyer should work well. I have the Matfer which is my egg go-to pan. I use a fat pat of ghee for my three egg omelettes and no issues with splatter. It is rather light weight too.

Hi Gladius. A-ha, another piece to the puzzle I hadn't considered. Just as a clarification for me, do I read into your post that the "Swedish" simply refers to country of origin, rather than anything else?

Thanks

Yes that is correct, country of origin.

Re: What is "Swedish" Steel Exactly

The iron ore is sourced from Sweden which is a very clean ore low in phosphorus and sulfur. It has been world renown for a long time as being very high quality.

Re: Stones for an odd knife collection and a temporary home

Not much fun (what do you consider fun...) but I like Shapton Pro stones as well...220 & 2000 should work well for this setup and both in stock.

A Suehiro tray over shelf lining on this polyboard on which a Suehiro Deluxe Stone Holder goes. This is an ideal setup for me. Here y...

Use your thumbs! Place thumbs on the spine to stabilize the blade as you move it back and forth. You can also use shorter strokes for more control.
