I use a 4" paring knife, be it brick, tuo, or beeng.

:lol:
I have a few :roll: Japanese knives.

Of course, even a moderately compacted beeng would ruin the edge of your yanagi. (11"? You got a short one. :wink: ) The only ones I would attempt to use would be a hankotsu or honesuki.

Have you been bitten by the water stone acquisition disorder bug yet?

11" is still longer than what I need it for. Larger fresh whole fish is a rarity in the midwest. Unless of course you're talking catfish.

No waterstones as of yet, not that I haven't looked. For now, I'm using a semi nice set of Norton stones.

Just kidding. A 270mm is plenty long for almost any application.

I have a few stones. Here are about half of them-

I love the high end Naniwa stones, but they're pretty pricey. Shapton's GlassStone series is fantastic, and reasonably priced.
