It's got nice bite. I find the Rika 5K leaves a refined toothy edge. I don't have a higher grit stone yet, except for the Ozuku Asagi, which I don't get out very often.

At some point I'm going to get something to follow the Rika.

Sounds like Something like a Yaginoshima Asagi might fit in your lineup nicely. Just sayin' :)

Meara and a Yaginoshima Asagi would follow up nicely.

Sure, sure, take me down the JNat rabbit hole :-). Actually Ken, I need to have a conversation with you about that Asagi. I bought a red Amakusa and a white Amakusa (or Binsui) to try because they were inexpensive. The Binsui, even with a diamond plate nagura treatment before sharpening, cuts slower than a turtle in a freezer ;-). My Ozuki Asaki seems to cut faster.

I did use the Gassans last evening on a few products and they cut through everything like buttah! Nice edges really do make a difference ;-).

Looks good. Yes the veho takes some getting used to. I still fumble with it a little. Very touchy with focus and lighting. I'm better at getting a good focus than the lighting.

You don't wanna see my scratch pattern :) It's developing more character marks day by day. If it can slice through a soft cherry tomato or other ripe fruit without leaving much juice on the board you know it's a good edge.

Push cutting paper is great too but we can't eat the paper unless it's rice paper.
