Re: 240 wa gyuto recos please

I'm assuming a 240? Are you in a hurry or would you be willing to wait for something to come back in stock?

Re: Factory Edge Micro-chipping

Thanks Ken and Greg for your input & responses. I guess that given this is AS & thin behind the edge, I was hoping it to be pretty much like any number of my other knives (including others in AS). Hence my choice of 10dps & a start on the 1k & I wasn't expecting to get down to the #...

Re: Twice in one week!

About 4 months ago I was officially banned from sharpining my wife's knives. She had cut herself twice in a week. Her knives are now getting too dull so she asked me if I could half sharpen her knives :roll: . I was wondering if anyone has any idea how to do such a thing?

Re: What do folks do with their collections?

I think some probably just bask in the glory of their collections (I'm looking at you Ray :shock: ). At least that's what I would be doing. :mrgreen: :D

Re: Stove/Range died - Recommendations?

So my stove/range - that thing with the oven and burners - just died. :x I was baking some potatoes and it switched to self cleaning all by its lonesome; didn't even lock the oven door. And wouldn't turn off! Had to hit the circuit breaker to get it to stop. Take out tonight! Plus that lingering sm...

Re: Chopping knife recommendations

It took me too long to figure out that longer is better for rocking. I'm an old dog I guess.
240 gyuto with some belly (ie a high tip). Other than that it depends on the answers to the questionnaire above.

Re: knife handle from scratch

Looks like I have another project. I just received the same knife. Thought I would like to try a D shaped handle and I was wrong. Its seems pretty straightforward and even if I screw it up its not a lot of cash outlay.
Nice handle BTW.

Re: Magnetic Knife Block

This is a good source. It is where I started. The best part is the graph of magnet sizes. Enjoy!

Re: Magnetic Knife Block

This leaves me with a 1/2 by 1/2 groove the length of the mag bar. I then take a 1/2 by 1/2 square steel tube, cut it to length and drill holes to allow it to be mounted to the wall. 63735250502__A4E5391B-EF18-45A9-8D3C-ABB21B9CE1D1.JPG The mag bar can then be placed over the tube and is held in pl...

Re: Magnetic Knife Block

A wall hanger I made several years ago. It has continuous magnets and routed keyholes in the back to mount it. Problem is it only holds about a 1/4 of the knives I own. I need a few more and the wall space to hang them. 20210313_155938.jpg Very nice. One row of magnets in it? I ask, cause I've seen...

Re: Magnetic Knife Block

I thought there were no secrets on the forum. :D
I purchased my magnets from Jobmaster Magnets up here in Canada. Im sure you can source them in the US of A and likely for less.
These are what I used.

Re: Magnetic Knife Block

This was my first attempt and I am pleased with the results. I like that there are no fasteners visible. BTW thats my forum special upper left. Very nice. Are you using two magnets per knife? I wanted the flexibility of placing knives anywhere along the length of the mag bar so I routed a 1/2 inch ...

Re: Handles - $75-85

I just received my handles and they look even better in person. I have just one problem. They are too nice for the blades I was going to mount them on. I guess I will have to research "best blades with the worst handles". Thanks Paul.
