Looks pretty cool! And since i had the PA knife i know they cut pretty damned good To bad that i am completely broke because of jnats But nice that you start 2017 directly with some exclusive offers here.
Hi Brian.. Too much ) Around 4-5 per month at least for the last months. But since i have 4 good suitas i am looking for softer medium stuff like Hakka/Takashima and super hard finishers .. mostly grey/green stuff that is used by barbers. i will have to update my pictures once all stuff is here.. i guess i will also sell some because i have too mach jnats
Ahh interesting that you really love Jnats and use them from the Start on your knifes! For the lower Stuff i have a gigantic Orange Thai Binsu from Miles.. i love that stone and my grey binsu ,Ikasrashi and Aizu next. But ill get a Watanabe #Ai1000 soon and that stone is simply sick
So thanks for sharing what stones you use! Best regards, danieL!
Wow that knife was gone very fast! Yes this "pertrichor finish" sounds interesting.. side of the blade looked more glossy and shiny than the PA Gyuto i was able to try. Sc145 gets insanly sharp and this handle shape and size was very comfortable (well better late feedback on the PA than never *G ) )
