That Hitachi white steel is great stuff, takes an amazing edge and holds it. You will not be disappointed. The Tojiro knives that DMP bought are knives I have sorta kinda lusted after for a while now.
Yes it was not my intention to take away from your post to DMP, just wanted to air my frustration when it comes to not being able to hold something like this in my hand.
I have a large end grain board I really like, but my wife does not like it because is is very heavy, and takes up a lot of real estate on the counter, the bamboo was out so that is what I used.
I will see about the pics of my improvised Wicked Lansky but a cautionary warning, it ant going to be perty.
