PANKO <> The Atoma is a rockstar, and I'm not suggesting against it; I'm saying be vigilant amid usage. A 150 stone & a 140 diamond plate are very different animals.

I have a 140 flattening plate but I think I've worn it down on a few projects. Mostly trying to flatten out a very very dished BIG norton tri-hone. They remove a lot really fast and being diamond embedded are really hard.

I also have a fine and coarse DMT Mini plates for the some of the special projects a full size stone aren't the best on. Figured I'd give an Atoma a go after all the praise.

I own a Henkel MC7000 gyuto... wait to judge, though.

I bought it when CKTG was closing them out(2011?). Wanted to try ZDP, at ~$200 I didn't figure I was going to find it any cheaper. Handle is stupid heavy putting the balance point an inch behind the bolster. Still, wait for it...

OK, now... I actually like the blade quite a bit and wouldn't hesitate to say the blade competes well with many of the $200 knives currently on the sight. That's right, I'm saying a Henkel performs as well as true J-knives. Go ahead and judge away ;)

No judging from me. Its not like Henckles is making the blades, just stamping their name on it. I may judge if you bought it and it wasn't on sale!

Why should anybody judge him, it's his phucking knife and money.

Panko --> all you can do is what's needed for the repair and charge him what you feel is a reasonable price for your work.
