Re: Knives-n'-Cabbages

Not cabbage, but... Yoshimi Kato nashiji suminagashi and .5 pound Thai chili for nuoc cham today This is strictly for cabbage. You should post this stuff in the knifes at work thread. That's a great thread that doesn't get enough action imo. Must have missed that one, sorry. I’ll post in there next...

Re: Strange knife

Definitely unique, but in my opinion... ugly. I wonder how the face of the blade being wood affects how it moves through product & if it’s been treated to help with that.

Grats CKTG! I got two knives and a stone around Black Friday and the service and products were and are great as always.

Re: Need Knife Recommendation

Your wording is a little confusing, are you looking for a nakiri or something more all purpose? I use a nakiri a lot for veg prep but I wouldn’t recommend one as your only or main knife.

Re: Heads up Konosuke SKD 240 Pre Sale

Curious... The pre-order site has changed and all the handle options are now showing except the laurel. Do you expect any of these in the 240 length? Rather like that option with this knife... Here it is: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/koskdtsgy24l.html That’s a looker! If only I was on the market ...

Re: Help Needed: First Wa Carbon Gyuto- Masakage Koishi vs Moritaka AS

I’m complete and utter juxtaposition to everything I wrote above- today I became enamored with the Masakage Yuki like today. I would pull the trigger- I just don’t know If the Lowe edge retention of the white #2 is a huge deal for a home cook who gets time to cook very seriously maybe 1-2x week (on...

Re: Need some reassurance

I guess I should have said from one sharpening session to another I may change the angle since I didn’t think the previous session “worked out” During the sharpening I feel like my angle is consistent. This is the problem I encounter most when I’m teaching (usually younger cooks at work) people how...

Re: Knife for steaks, pork, chicken breasts and brisket

After using a 150mm petty for this kind of task for years I just recently started a honesuki for the first time and I really like that it’s more stiff, I find it easier to control... good for precision. A longer petty or short sujihiki might be more versatile in that you could use it for cleaning an...
