Hinoura Tsuchime AS Vs Fujiwara Teruyasu Maboroshi

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Well, not so much a Vs, but can anyone comment on either of these two?

 

They will be in 210 length, used in a home environment for mainly veggies on an end grain board. I have sharpening stones

 

Pinch grip, I like chopping, dicing and a bit of rocking on big cabbages and herbs

 

From what I can gather the Hinoura OOTB sharpness is mediocre, with one owner saying it needed thinning to unleash its best. 

 

Thanks

210 is short for cabbages

 

Have you sharpened this kind of knife before?  The edge will be shiny shiny when you take it to high enough grit.   But that hazy middle part...  takes some work to make it look like that again.  Functionally doesn't matter, but if you care about the looks, it's some work to bring it back to that every time you thin.

 

Personally I prefer either a flat cladding or monosteel that I can simply sand paper to an even finish.

 

OR a wide bevel

Hmmm... that's certainly something to bare in mind, and I hadn't considered it, thankyou

 

I have sharpened my Tojiro Shigorami which has similar black flat, then hazy bevel. I did a little work on this knife as (as well as OOTB sharpness being mediocre) it had a 'lump' on one side on the primary 'hazy' bevel, the haze has of course gone and as I wasn't bothered about the looks have left it

 

I wouldn't want that on either of the above of course

 

How would that haze look be produced after thinning?

king 800 stone, fingerstones, sandpaper

 

If I was selling, I'd clean it up but normally my way is to not worry about it and let it patina.
