Re: What would CKTG members do?

That's a special knife. Were it me, I'd send it off to rehandle. But it all depends on how much you like it.

Re: Best way to sharpen a single bevel?

I wonder if people typically use mid-grit stones on the Ura? I would worry about over sharpening the Ura.

Re: Kurosaki Arrivals

My new 270 AS is on the thin and nimble side -- can't compare it to earlier versions, though. The Kurouchi seems pretty durable, but mine is still new.

Re: Kurosaki Arrivals

Believe it was around 5 years ago that I bought a Kurosaki Kurouchi AS for $250. Today it sells for..... $250, nice! :ugeek: I get the feeling that knife prices have been rising (noticeably) in the last year, which make it an even better deal. Especially in the context of demand for his work and hi...

Re: Best way to sharpen a single bevel?

I wonder if the Tanaka has some kind of micro-bevel on the Ura side that is minimizing steering? Shapton Glass is great for Ura sharpening -- only use high grit stones for that. In terms of a soft natural, look for things rated 2 or 2.5. I use a Hakka Tomae, but there are other options. I think Cera...

Wait a second, this is not a trial, and it is most definitely not a gene altering therapy. These statements are simply not true.

Re: Best way to sharpen a single bevel?

I have seen these knives listed before, and they are intriguing. Be aware, they will take a lot of practice -- single bevel knives steer, a lot. It should be fine for very short product, but even a shallot or apple will be a challenge. On stones, that Ozuko is too hard for what I'm talking about. Ev...

Re: Best way to sharpen a single bevel?

I am no expert here, but I'll go first. What kind of knife is it, and what are you using it for? That would help answer the question of to micro-bevel or not. A Deba you're using to go through fish bones would benefit from one, especially at the heal; a yanagiba you're only going to use to portion a...

Re: New knife, never purchased one

Greetings! If you are used to a 10" Western, I would opt for a 240 Gyuto. This one is on the hefty side for a Japanese knife, but it has a great reputation around here (I don't have one, but I have similar knives and love them): https://www.chefknivestogo.com/gibl2gy24.html I wouldn't use it on...

Re: What do folks do with their collections?

Yes.

No room for a mag block. I have a Japanese stand by my work area for knives I'm working with. I made my own in-drawer storage out of a bamboo box and some cork for things in rotation. Then there are boxes. Travel knives stay in a roll.

Re: Anryu Usage Question

Hard cheese, hard squash, most nuts, I stay away with my good knives. But garlic paste is another issue. You want to be very careful not to put pressure on the handle or neck. Don't have your blade at any kind of angle. Make sure the board is by the edge of the counter and use the flat of the blade....
