Re: Nubatama Stones?

Nubatama was a "house brand" for Ken, a name he came up with, just like Mark uses Yahiko. There is no actual Nubatama brand or company like there is with a name like Shapton or Naniwa. Ken took the secrets of who made his Nubatama stones to the grave.

Re: Some days... (rant)

This is where practice, repetition and experience comes into play. I remember the days where it seemed like I sharpened my fingers more than the knife but now days my fingers never touch the stone.

Re: Noob wants a 240mm Kiritsuke....Recommendations?

The Harukaze AS is Blue steel. AS = Aogami Super = Blue Super. It has the highest alloy content of the Blue steels making it more wear resistant and the least reactive.

Re: Knife Sharpening Customer Questions.

Very sound advice Grant. One point I have always tried to drive home to people is you don't move to a higher grit stone until you get your knife sharp on your low grit stone. Higher grit stones do not make the knife sharper they refine/polish the edge from your low grit stone. Higher grit stones do ...

Re: Kohetsu HAP40. How are they made and where?

Also I would like to ask, is this an asymmetric grind on this Kohetsu Petty? It's difficult to tell without a jewler's loop. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohape181.html (Kohetsu Knife I mentioned at first) It seems that this knife has a nearly flat grind on one side and a steeper grind on the oth...

Re: Practice knife

I bought one of the very first DaoVua leaf spring knives sold buy Mark. I found it to be a very good knife to practice sharpening with. A good knife to practice thinning a knife with too.

Re: Looking for a 240mm Gyuto

...The harder steels are way sharper... False. The HRC of a steel has no relation to how sharp it can get, harder does not mean sharper. White steel at 60 HRC will get sharper than AS steel at 65HRC. Softer Euro steels can get just as sharp as some harder Japanese steels though it may take a little...

Re: 20th Anniversary 20% Off Weekly Deal

The knife is definitely in the laser class. Very thin at the edge, ground fairly high and what looks like the slightest convexing on the right side. I believe it will be a very good performer ghosting thru soft produce. With such a thin knife and grind I would expect wet product to ride high up the...

Re: Don't try this at home

Thought I'd just watch a few minutes and all of a sudden it was a half hour later and the video was going off! :?

Really cool video Mark, from the making of the knife to last cut breaking down the tuna. I got lost in it! 8-) :ugeek:
