  1. Yeah, you have to turn the piece over to look at it more, but you get used to the process. If the block is stationary and you move the piece, you're using your whole body to do the action more, which means you get less fatigue. I guess that must be why they do that in Japan!

  2. You can always try mounting the sanding block, and move the piece over it, like the Japanese do with swords. I often get hand/wrist fatigue with my sanding blocks, but never when polishing a knife or sword using stones.

  3. The red handled one is pretty cool. Love the handle. Very clean execution too!

  4. And a couple more. The grinds are getting more complex even though it's not really visible All the distal taper with sturdy heels and almost flat grinds in the back quarter but the thin out fast with almost imperceptible hollows above the edges and the flats are convexed both towards the edge and the spine

  5. Basically these. When you lift the top gravity drops the lock into position, lift up and push a lever and it folds down. The set we bought is rated at 500lbs, I think the end of the cabinet will fail first, though I reenforced everything pretty well. It worked a treat for dinner last night. Geoff

  6. i'm just an old farmer. The more tools you have the easier your job is(one should hope). Granted, common sense tells you your 'investment" should make you worth more. NOT TRUE, Bullkachit ! You can have 300 grand in tools but if you can't use them your work is useless. I can think of a couple of BIG RICH "kife makers" who crowd that group. OTOH. If a dude builds a blade that affects you more than a big dose of Viagra......using a chainsaw file, an old Nicholson bastard and uncle Ferdies Weber/ Kmart grill ????/ What blade is worth more ? Picasso didn't even have a lint cloth or mineral spirits . Understand ? Product is worth way more than process.
