  1. Well, the tiles might be ceramic, but that’s it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Depends on cook temp, but at 225°, I’d think closer to 7. I don’t have any problems cooking hotter to speed it up though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Cook it like a brisket. SPG, cook naked until roughly 170° internal, wrap if you like, and cook until roughly 205° internal, but more importantly probe tender. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Definitely not a KK. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I have a bag of jealous devil, haven’t used any yet, and have never tried the kJ brand. I have used the other three, and I’m in agreement with his assessment. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Are you free hand sharpening? If so, it could be nothing more than the way you happen to hold the cleaver compared to others. I don’t believe it’s the stones necessarily, I use shapton glass on all my Japanese knives with excellent results. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah, I did the same. I didn’t realize VG 10 was so hard..I guess that’s why knife makers use it! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I checked out the website, and it claimed a hardness of 58-60 HRC. This will be much harder than your stainless blades. If you use a sharpening angle of 12°-15°, you’ll have a very nice cutting tool that will hold an edge for quite some time. I highly recommend you use only quality edge grain, or synthetic cutting boards, and stay away from bones. It likely seemed easier to sharpen because the harder steel burrs, instead of rolling back and forth, making it harder to actually create an edge. Get a jewelers type magnifying glass and you can see what’s happening while you’re sharpening, or check out you tube..just make sure you’re watching someone using stones.

  12. I’m not crazy about the table clamp set up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What I did was use a Dixie type paper plate, the type with the waxy side. Top hat shaft through the middle of the plate, wax side towards the gasket, use the top hat for pressure..hold the plate to prevent spinning. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. How bad is your current gasket? I didn’t replace mine until it literally came off. If you choose to change your gasket, there are a number of threads on the subject, but if you can’t find one, I’ll be happy to explain how I did mine. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Asahi are great boards, but I personally use hi soft..no particular reason… Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
