I would like some information about a knife I ordered this morning, but I cannot seem to Register on the forum. Your Confirmation Code is generator is broken…
Anyways, I placed the above order this morning for the Tim Johnson Nakiri: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/riar21gywcuh1.html
and would like some additional info on it. I know this is a bit ass-backward asking for info after I got it, but when I saw that Nakiri, I just had to have it. I was too afraid someone was going to snatch it away from me.
I do own a Carbon Blade knife, albeit a pocket knife, so I am ‘sort-of’ used to the care going along with it, but my questions are more towards the maintenance (keeping the edge) of it. I am by no stretch of the imagination a knife sharpener, but I am trying to up my game so to speak.
Would a Edge Pro, with the Shapton Glass Stones, do a sufficient enough job to maintain this knife’s edge, or would I have to learn hand sharping? (I have some Wusthoff’s to practice with first though)
How do you know if a knife has a nice Patina, or a dodgy ‘Stain’, or are they the same thing? (I did see someone saying to put a carbon knife in a Rare Roast to get a nice Bluish Patina, good idea?)
Well, thanks for your help and an excellent website.
