Congradulations on pulling the trigger, but I believe what you need to be saving for now is an idahone and some sharpening stones.

Looks like it to me.

 

There are a number of cultures where sending a knife without accompaniment to someone would be considered as "cutting off relations".  By enclosing a coin with the knife, it signifies that the sender is only sending the knife in friendship.  I can well accept that a seller wanting to signify that the knife was sent in friendship, especially if the seller would appreciate future business from the purchaser.

 

On the other hand, some cultures do it differently.  In Thailand, the recipient is expected to return a token coin.

I don't know. I am not familiar with coins of Asia region/Japan. But would be cool if its so.

Thanks man. I currently have IB8 (Combo India Coarse and Fine), 1.2K King, 5K Naniwa SS and 8K Imanishi. And I strop on cardboard and felt instead ot "steeling".  I am in process of making my first leather strop; just bought some piece of leather today :)

Also I am thinking of getting Sigma 240x to learn how to re-profile the edge and how to thin a knife.

This forum was a great help to get familiar with all the "paraphernalia", now it's time to practice and get better.
