Re: Looking for a push-cutting 210 workhorse to add to the collection - help!

Welcome to the forum! When you said bell peppers, the Shibata R2 210 immediately came to mind. It is $20 bucks over budget but it is an excellent cutter and twenty bucks you will be glad you spent. The R2s edge lasts through many a prep session and is in-stock. Take a hard look... https://www.chefkn...

Ken Schwartz may still sell the 150/1200 combo that is an ideal traveler...give him a call.

Re: Toyama knives

High praise. My Gassan 210 is most excellent. I've yet to use another 210 that suits my preferences so well. So glad I got one on closeout - and kept it. Lot of people missed the boat on these, but the hybrid handle helps explain why. I'd love to see more of these on CKTG with a different handle. T...

Re: Adding a Nakiri

I can't find that thread, but I did not get the sense the result would be such a tall and heavy nakiri, relatively speaking. Some posters may have requested something in the size of the Matsubara, but I would have requested a 180 about 60 mm tall, and certainly not anything above 65 mm. At that siz...

Re: What did you order with the Black Friday sale?

So I ordered a Harukaze AS Wa Gyuto 210mm for the BF sale and have had it about a week now. It is an excellent knife in every way. It is thin and light and flies through food like a laser but thicker and stiffer ( ha, don't go there ) and a little long at ~216mm. I like this 'tweener size ( 215mm - ...

Re: Pro wants a 210 Gyuto with some belly.

Nice choice! I picked up the Harukaze AS 210 gyuto for the Black Friday sale and I too am impressed and very happy with it. I have two Harukaze SRS-15 knives: a 180 and 240 gyuto and can say they produce excellent knives that perform well. The 210mm AS is light, nimble and flies through product. I g...

Re: I like the Shapton Pro 2K a lot. How about 1K or 5K?

I don't have one, I missed that boat. Ken was out of them before I even got into naturals.
Try a hard stone then, 6k - 8k, maybe a Yaginoshima.

Re: I like the Shapton Pro 2K a lot. How about 1K or 5K?

Interesting, thank you. I have not even thought to try such a jump because my 1k between is simply so fast it is under a handful of strokes on each side and splash I will have to give it a go tomorrow minus the Meara. I have other things I can sub in there though. :mrgreen: IF you have a Meara, giv...

Re: I like the Shapton Pro 2K a lot. How about 1K or 5K?

I agree with the 2k to 8k and like both of those stones. I like using the 2k as a mid grit too but you mention the sp220, would you actually make that jump, 220 to 2k? —— I often do make that jump. I do so often with the Watanabe PA 220 too. With light pressure, the finish produced is an easy jump.

Re: I like the Shapton Pro 2K a lot. How about 1K or 5K?

Given that I am not that experienced, I still like the feel of this over the 1K side of my Imanishi combo stone. The latter has a more rough feel, not necessarily in grit, but more like I am hitting occasional little bumps along the way. Also, it does not appear to remove material quickly, given th...
