Re: Did USPS loose my knife?

Huh Well guys, I ordered a blade cross-Atlantic, and... it went cross-Pacific instead. Landed in Australia two weeks ago, and only just four days ago dislodged itself from the Australian "exchange station." Still moving, I'm sure, but only God knows where ;) Susan has been on it, however, and has be...

Monster Cabbages i found in the Russian market. These would scare most of the knives in my house away!
Bob, is that you??
What an impressive cabbage! Maybe that monster explains the recent trend towards 270's among home cooks... hahaha :lol:

I’m coming to this thread late. The video is marked private and the IG won’t get me there but after reading through the entire thread all I can say is hats off Mark.

1) Check you local government for hazardous waste collection.

2) offer it for free pickup on Craigslist.
I think option #2 is what I'll go with. Indeed, someone else can make use of it.
Thanks!

PCB Etchant disposal

Hey all,

I need to get rid of a bottle of PCB Etchant.
Is there a safe way to dispose of it... maybe without having to neutralize it all with baking soda?

Thanks!

Re: knife cleanup - Butternut nasty film

Ended up using nail-polish remover.
It works.

Man, that stuff is tough!
I just cut another one recently, and the same thing happened. This hasn't happened to me before, so I'm really wondering what gives now

Re: knife cleanup - Butternut nasty film

This butternut is stuck to the blade, not tarnished*
I'll get back to with results asap. Thanks for the ideas.

* On a side note - the stainless did react a little since it was purchase, though. Ginger made it quite obvious

knife cleanup - Butternut nasty film

So, I've cut butternts before, but this time, I think she to leaving the knife unwashed for a while, the gunk that comes out of a butternut really, and I mean really stuck to my knife. It's a Kono MM ginsan, and I'd rather not use a very abrasive material on it. Any ideas? Vinegar? Lemon? PCB etchan...

Re: Moribashi Pointers

Well, dealing with some frying and grilling is what I originally got excited about, but like I said, the effort to properly control them brings into question the badass/utility ration, especially where some tongs might serve better. They're still here <sigh> we shall see plating the sushi, on the oc...

Not quite a knife, but darn pointy and very sharp! My wife surprised me with a pair of Moribashi for our six-year anniversary. I spoke of these in the past, thinking they were cool.
