I do my Japanese knives & any radical thinning on bench stones so I can attain those low angles.
Here are two pictures of a Yanagi first shows the thinning bevel and second is from my Veho of the cutting bevel.

Nice edge, looks like it would have just enough bite. I've been at the hospital for the past 5 days with my wife (surgery doing good). Can't wait to get her home so I can go back to play time. My weps is soooo calming. :)

May it be speedy recovery.
I must admit I find it hard to not sharpen something at least once a day .
I have officially become a knife sharpening bore I was about to ask a friend what he thought of his knife I had just sharpened and was about to launch into an enthusiast dialogue of how I could improve the blade further and was shot down and asked to talk about other things . Lucky we can chat amongst ourselves on these forums !

I totally get it Leo, I can get carried away at times myself. I'm also glad we have this forum, there are alot of knowledgabe people to talk to here. Sorry Tuffy, not trying to hijack your thread, I still like to see the knives you come across and sharpen. Keep up the good work. B)

I found a couple of things it would appear the Ken Onion series is no longer listed on the Kai Shun web sites .
There is a warranty on them but that only covers damage due to manufacturing defects they do offer a lifetime of free sharpening for the I think original buyer provided the postage is paid . I also read that they sharpen them on a belt sander.
It slightly destroys the myth for me I thought they were closer to how shall I put it more traditional Japanese cutlery .
Still they are attractive knives .

Thanks for the kind thoughts, it has been a rough year for her. She finally got the surgery she needed (had to remove a good portion of her bowel). She is doing really well still on morphine for now but Dr. is very pleased and full recovery is expected. Thanks again, we can get back to talking knives and stuff now. :)
