Re: WTB or WTT : Honesuki

I've never had a problem with hard carbon steels breaking down chickens. As long as your not doing something totally reckless it's no problem. Most J-knives are not nearly as delicate as made out to be. I've broke down spare ribs St. Louis style with a 63Hrc AS steel gyuto without any problems.

The original HD has nothing under the "HD" and the HD2 has a symbol under the "HD".

Re: Looking to

I've participated in many raffles on different forums and never heard of any legal problems. One forum I frequent does one every year to raise money to run the forum. I do know raffles violate PayPal's terms of service as gambling and won't participate in processing payments or will suspend an accou...

Re: New name for new pond

...On a tray, if you try to carry it, it is solid and can do so. If I try to carry this thing to the sink, it is kind of cumbersome without a try itself. Not to say it is not useful, because it is. It would be nice if the new one were a bit more sturdy. Use a small bucket to dump it in right on the...

Re: Looking for a good gyuto...

Some of the old times from the old forum talked how they would dull the point of the heel on their knives because of how common it was to cut themselves on it.

Re: Bucket lists

I really do hate to write this but.... I want to try an original KS. I presently own 3 different knives inspired by it: Kashima, Tsourkan A2, Doi. Honestly, I'm kind of interested in seeing what the original's like. I bet you can find someone on here to lend you one for a week, no? Who wants to hel...

Re: Where are the 180 petties?

I am actually down to one knife lately...now, I am a novice cook at best, usually just cooking dinner for two a few times a week. But the one knife I have not been able to let go of is a 180mm carbon steel. It is about 38mm at the heel. I use it exactly as a mini gyuto. My counter space is very lim...

Re: Prototype Gyuto. 200mm

Love the rustic look and the taller profile Dakota! It does look like it would benefit a lot with more thinning behind the edge. I'm a big fan of knives that are a little thick at the spine(3+mm) but get real thin behind the edge. Generally gives a confident feel with excellent performance. Looking ...

Re: Marko Tsourkan Knives

Are these going to be the Mizuno style convex grind he's been trying to perfect? He's a really thoughtful and meticulous knifemaker and it'll be cool to see him on the site in addition to some of the other western makers that are semi common here (like Randy Haas and Butch Harner).
