Re: WTB Nenox 240mm g type gyuto

I dont have a nenox, but i do have a ryusen blazen, and it is a really nice western, i have a feeling that it would outperform both the nenox and the kono hd. Also worth looking is the harukaze srs15 western, at a much lower price point, and an amazing knife too.

Re: Is san mai always 3 layers? How does it differ from warikomi?

Thanks everyone. So here's what I find particularly confusing. Why would it ever be difficult to distinguish between san-mai and warikomi? Couldn't you easily tell by simply looking at the spine? If you see layers then it's san-mai. Simply metal matching the outermost cladding layer then it's warik...

Hi guys, I saw this one pop up in the bst and i picked it up. I wont be keeping it.

Re: What do you think about these Japanese Pans?

They look nice, but seem a little too thin at 1.6 mm for a carbon steel pan.

Re: High end worthy gyuto

Does vg10 perform as well as r2 when done by the right Smith? I’m asking this for myself since I’m seeing vg10 gyutos with Sanyo characteristics ... a one more knife wish list. Have plenty of good guidance from the board in the event that the tall gehei petty is a hit and my wife’s cousin expresses...

Re: White steel vs. Tomatoes?

I cut a lot of tomatoes at work, i agree that they can be amongst the most difficult foods to cut. I use the same set up at work for any knife, sg500 or sg1k, sp2k, with the occasional finishing stone far and between. I use knives in a few steels, and they can all cut any tomato fresh off the stones...

Re: Re: Konosuke Togatta questions

Alloy compositions, just like recipes, wont tell you all you need to know. In hand experience is the only way to find out if a particular steel is to your liking. A sakai laser is w2, just as an ajikataya hinoura, but you wouldn't believe they are made from the same steel from real life use. Alloy r...

Re: New 240 for chef

I just sold my (sharpened twice) harukaze srs15 for 150 to a coworker, put up a classified add, you might be able to score something like that for around that amount.
