It's about finding that next group of core players we can win with in the next 6, 8, 10 years. Let's face it, it's hard for 20-, 21-, 22-year-olds to lead an NHL team. Look at the playoffs.

Sorry, forgot i posted in this thread. Its a Vogue brand - friend who ran a kitchen at a masons lodge (i.e. virtually unlimited kitchen budget with gently caress all oversight - why yes, i would like a 2kg log of wagyu eye fillet and a whetstone for free) gave it to me as a present

What kind of knife is this that Brad Leone uses? I've seen some large cleavers or butcher knives that look close but they all seem to have a more curved edge.

Looks like one of the Almazan Kitchen knives, or similar.

I got a double sided whetstone, one side is 1000 grit, the other is 6000. They are not labeled but one side feels more... not rough exactly but more friction. Am I correct that side is the 1000 and the smoother is the 6000?

Those look a lot like Brietos under another label. Seems like the core steel is the ubiquitous unspecified "Mo-V" steel.

If these are the two knives (210mm gyuto, 150mm petty)
http://www.tomishin.jp/products/det...?product_id=119
http://www.tomishin.jp/products/det...?product_id=127
then they're about $376 new for both.

Can someone suggest to me a 1000/6000 stone? I've never sharpened a knife before and my knives are stupidly dull. I can literally press my thumb on my knives up and down the blade and not be cut. Amazon would be great.

You could try ordering from amazon.co.jp but I'm not sure how much international shipping will cost you. I got a Shapton 320, 1000, and the Kitayama 8000 for about 90 bucks total, not including shipping.

If you've got nice knives then you might as well spring for stones because you only buy them once, basically.

Or, you could get something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tri...r/dp/B004HIZKHE

Or just get one of the cheap pull-through sharpeners. Not great for your knives and they don't get all that sharp, but they are much cheaper.

edit: Forgot to mention, you could probably do okay with just a 1000. If it's really that dull, maybe you want a coarser stone as well, but generally a 1000 edge is good enough for cooking.

You asked earlier in the thread about a stone to practice on "crappy kitchen knives" and you just said you've never sharpened before. IMO start off with cheap but good quality and figure out if you even want to commit time to learning the skill before you go off buying more expensive stuff (and possibly getting frustrated, quitting, and not using it).

I think a good inexpensive starting point is something like a Norton Crystolon or Norton India.

They're inexpensive and you can still get a quite sharp edge off of them - certainly sharp enough to make your arms hairless and cut newspaper.

And if you decide you want to go further into sharpening they still work just fine for doing grunt work like restoring chipped off tips or establishing a new edge on a very dull knife.

That's what I figured, just wanted to sanity check. Found a nice lovely knife to practice on before I risk my good ones, time to learn.

This is the 1000/6000 stone I got, it was the one recommended on Junskitchen's knife video and I figured he knows what he's doing.

This bevel that people talk about when moving to one side to the next is so hard to feel, I literally have to close my eyes and move across so slowly. My knives are getting sharper, but not nearly close enough to cutting hair. Does the high grit make it sharper? Like 1k to 6k to 8k?

Yes, though 6k to 8k is probably not noticeable.

It doesn't hurt to have a 9$ beater but imho just swing by an Asian grocer for your first. I'd also not trust an ambiguous steel hacking at bone but it's probably Chinese 304a or w/e tool steel.

I use this one daily: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003HESNR8/

I know it's technically not the best knife in the world, but it holds an edge for ages, has nice balance, is sturdy as hell, and costs less than some burritos.

SubG made a bunch of posts about cheap chinese cleavers earlier this year.

I got this one (SBZ 210-1) that's $23 at Aliexpress and it's been great so far. They have a huge selection of similar Chinese knives that are pretty solid for the price.

Just grabbed one of these too ended up being less than with a coupon. Had been eyeing a CCK for a long time but couldn't stomach the price increase. Looking forward to it showing up in a couple weeks after I've forgotten about it and being surprised. You're welcome future me.
