Re: How about this idea?

I’m open to a tall 210mm Gyuto. Anyone have a good shape that we could all argue about?

Re: Precocious new chef looking for small gyoto

This knife just arrived and I'll be putting specs on the page in a few minutes. It seems to fit what you're looking for perfectly. This guy is a good, young blacksmith in his mid 30s and he's doing very nice work. It kurouchi, in your price range with reactive cladding and nice finishing work in a 7...

Re: How I sharpen a knife. (Video Tutorials)

Hi Derryn, When you grind an edge on one side you start to form a burr which is a thin flap of metal that forms from the other side. When you flip the knife over you usually remove that burr on the first or second stroke and then start forming a new burr on the other side. So "chasing" is really not...

Re: How I sharpen a knife. (Video Tutorials)

Hi CKTG, II don't think I have a forum account as I haven't purchased knives from your website in a while. I have a question in regards to "chasing the burr". I've watched all your tutorials on sharpening knives. How do you actually remove a burr from one side of the knife, if the burr constantly mo...

Re: Chefknivestogo Customer Comments

Mark, I received the knife today, and my wife let me try it out instead of waiting for Christmas! I gotta say, I am blown away. I didn't think the difference would this dramatic. This thing is insane and the edge you put on it is ridiculous. It literally fell through an onion. This is going to make ...

Re: Homemade Roo Strops, a fun experiment

You guys should try cereal box cardboard for stropping. It makes an excellent substrate for stropping and it holds diamond paste or spray on it well. And it’s free. Use the non printed side not the exterior. Also, if you guys use our base and want magnet backing to make your on stick on your home ma...
