In this video, I review the Nubatama Bamboo 600 grit stone. This stone is similar in both style and appearance to the 320 grit Bamboo stone, but leaves an even finer finish.
Water absorption and saturation is pretty rapid, making this stone close to a splash and go type stone. Slightly porous. It does retain metal swarf similar to the 320 Bamboo or JNS 320 stone.
I begin by continuing to refine the edge left on a knife after a chip repair on a 180 grit Nubatama stone. This is a 330 mm Tojiro gyuto, a stainles VG10 type steel.
Very smooth stone, fine mud, quickly generates metal swarf. Acts like a fast 1000 grit stone. Doesn't generate a lot of mud - between a Shapton and a Chosera.
I spend some time demonstrating changes in sound as the edge is refined and the stone surface becomes smoother from the stone's initial surfacing. I mention the lack of necessity to generate burr with every stone.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
