Re: These are going to be a hit.

I would love to get one of these but I'm trying very hard to be good right now. I have soooo many knives already I'm trying to keep new purchases to truly unique or have-to-have knives. These look like such a bargain though I could break down at any moment.

Re: Knife repair

Very nice! I don't think I would have the fortitude to do a repair that extensive on stones. As soon as I saw the words "chopping bamboo" together in that sentence I cringed!.... :shock:

Get Mark to flip it around or do it yourself, very easy to do.

In other words you just don't like D handles regardless of lefty or righty?

Re: Is Harukaze a good knife?

Harukaze is a very good knife, punches WAY above it's price point. The couple I have used performed excellent with no damage. The one review on the Kiritsuke makes it look bad but you don't know how that knife was truly being used or how bad it was actually chipped. It may have only been micro chipp...

You have several 8" knives, I'd consider stepping up to a 240mm for your next knife.

Re: Sijihiki size

My suji is 300mm. I have the attitude if you're going 270 why not just get a 300, it's only another inch. I'm just a home user and have no problem using it when I need it. I do just like Rob when breaking down a turkey, separate the bird with a petty and then slice the breast with a suji. I don't us...

Re: Any tips on kitchen blowtorches?

Yeah having a base on those thin tanks can be very handy. I use a torch and the 14oz slimmer tanks a lot for work and use a base with mine. https://www.amazon.com/MR-TORCH-Handheld-Cylinder-Stabilizer-Accessory/dp/B07Q3FYLJ1/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=bernzomatic+propane+cylinder+base&qid=...

Re: Micro chips?

Yes it's not unusual for an OOTB edge on a new knife to have fatigued metal and microchip regardless of steel. A fresh sharpening usually will fix this issue and it won't be a further problem.
