Re: Capitalizing on my mistakes

Hey Peter, I was reading through your mistakes, and I gotta tell ya - even though it's mostly a permutation of the "Sharpening School" which formed my foundations some three years ago in my sharpening journey - I really benefited from getting "back to basics" with ya! I was falling for the same fear...

Re: Konosuke Giveaway

So, the goal now is clearer, yes?
We want to get as much mullah to feed America, and we (I) want to get my hands on the knife.

How will the raffle physically happen?
More importantly, what will the start and end date/times be?

Re: Konosuke Giveaway

Ok, he's excited to do this so we'll give it a shot. Also, Sue and I are going to match the money contributed to Feeding America. Dan if you want to do it let me know and if you win we'll pay for the shipping. The same goes for anyone else from outside the USA. You may need to send me the money via...

Re: What did you cook today?

Ronnie, those were flipped over the 12.5 DeBuyer carbon skillet ;) So, wait. You own multiple pieces of similar cookware?! That's pretty unusual for folks around here. :lol: No no no, you have it all mixed up, Ronnie! One is 12.5" family-favoeite carbon steel that pleases the wife with much Teflon ...

Also, I think I can subscribe to the sentiment here - I too like most burgers I meet, so long as they're not over-done 8-)

Re: Konosuke New Website.

Very nicely done indeed! No choil shots, though. Nor MM series, either I could be wrong but I think I remember hearing that the MM line is discontinued. Guessing that might be why it's not on the site. You didn't hear wrong. Still, I think it got mentioned under Myojin's little blurb... I'd think i...

Re: Forge to table

I can think of several hand made blades at this price-point that would/could exhibit similar issues (Daovua, Yoshimitsu Fugen series, to name just two), and yet their performance is plenty satisfying, while the rustic F&F is often part of their charm. I'd vote either to ignore or rehandle (or gift ;...

Re: What did you cook today?

I may have over thought it with the egg yolk... What do y'all do to make your best burgers? My preferred method is to not mix anything into the patties, just season heavily with S&P right before cooking. I think burgers with stuff mixed in can start to feel a bit like meatballs or meatloaf, and the...

"Canada Day" burgers? Oh I do t know, just burgers really. Finely minced onion/garlic+fried in evoo+ground beef+Szechuan sauce (I didn't have BBQ)+plus 1egg yolk. Turn to balls - turn to patties, and fry, flip, serve with veg and wife's keto-friendly (purple?) psyllium husk buns (super fluffy, ligh...

Re: Konosuke Giveaway

I would be open to doing a raffle on instagram and here but I would need to figure out how to do it in an efficient way. We could donate all the proceeds to Feed America. I’ll need to talk to Kosuke too. He gave me leeway to do whatever I wanted but it’s his gift and I want to make sure he’s into i...

We're all thinking that, but no one was saying it. Thanks, Jeff. Nobody wants the stress. This Sumiiro is really a hot potato you're best fit to handle.

Re: Konosuke Giveaway

How about a passaround? Just a CONUS one... or... then again, why not an international one? :o :mrgreen: Mark could let someone else handle it, so as to get himself off the hook. We could nominate... perhaps members with three-letter names, (but keep it in the American time zones, for convenience) :D

Re: Konosuke Giveaway

Kosuke posted about this on IG a few weeks ago, specifically stating that the knives have been given to their vendors with the intent of being free-to-enter giveaways. Pivoting in to a raffle, no matter how well intended, would likely turn in to a headache for Mark. I didn’t realize this when I mad...

Re: 210 gyuto workhorse and 240 upgrade recommendation

Thanks for the comments; really appreciate the input. I also considered the Kanehide PS60, but really want to stay under $100 for a beater. Any thoughts on Daovua knives? Look very rustic, but how would they compare to the Fujiwara? You know what, I had a 210 Daovua I really really liked - and as D...

What a great post. I can totally see my mother, in the days before these things were sold pre-shelled, sitting there with her little Chicago Cutlery parer, opening these things up for hours, just to end up adding the to a couscous where their presence is sorta forgettable (though the ensuing gas is ...

Re: Konosuke Updates

Question1: Was there, is there, or will there ever be a... Stainless-clad carbon Konosuke knife? Just curious :?: :geek: Question2: The MM Ginsan & MM B#2 were forged by a lady bladesmith. Is her name public, or is it kept private? Also, the sharpener is the same fellow from the FM series, correct?
