Quote from: WolfY on August 27, 2016, 12:02:18 AMBy the way, if I'm not mistaken, this "Made in Japan" is only referring to the steel. There are knifes like this, made in China and costs about $40~50USD on ebay or Aliexpress. I have one and like it very much. They are light and holding the edge pretty nice. HRc should be about 60-62http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=AS_20160826140032&SearchText=xinzuo+8+chefAlthough IKEA has nice knifes too and are very cheap. Got them too.
Quote from: Jan on August 27, 2016, 10:23:59 AMRecently I was sharpening a knife made of Japanese stainless steel VG-10. I have noticed that the magnetically attracted steel fillings were different from fillings obtained by sharpening milder steels. The gathered fillings derived from the VG-10 steel had granular character compared with the fillings from milder steels which usually form a bulge above the magnet which resembles hedgehog spines. I was wondering if the powder metallurgy could be the reason for it. Jan

There were a lot of interesting discussions with their sharpening staff and their sharpening master. Their handy work is just amazing and their machines looks quite different.
