Re: What did you cook today?

That looks great Dan, I never heard of Shashuka before but i can see how easy and tasty it will be. Have lots of fresh tomatoes now I might have to try out with that.

Re: What did you cook today?

I watched a Bobby Flay show one day where he heavily salted and peppered burgers (loose grind is the best so it doesn't get tough) and thought that was crazy, but for 15% fat on a hot grill, most of the seasoning comes off however the burgers tasted great and we have done it ever since. BUT I used t...

Re: What did you cook today?

Ronnie; try adding some carnation malted milk powder to them. Made a big difference for us. Great suggestion, Bob. Do you just add it in or do you dial something else back? At this point, I'm thinking any near-term waffle exploration for me is going to be on the savory side. Malted waffles are most...

Re: Kurosaki finishes

I have done some polishing on "the grind" where the grind lines werent to my liking and it looks good. As far as a Kurosaki, I currently only have a fairly new Raijin 210. Here is the page its on with a few photos. http://www.chefknivestogoforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3869&p=99169&hilit=thunder+go...

Re: Kurosaki finishes

Hi: you may want to make a polished textured knife more rustic, but in my opinion this can have negative effects like creating drag thru some materials. and lower the value of your knife. From what i remember Steve (Pd077) has done some etching on damascus to bring out its contrast more but I cant t...

Re: Best Knife for Gifting: Tojiro DP Hammered Gyuto?

My wife doesn't like any of my Kurouchi finished or KU hammered (incl my kono skd) but does like regular hammered with no Ku finish (Anyru, sld nakiri etc). Joe might have a point there. Rustic looking Ku finish knives may not be as appreciated by some.

Re: Best Knife for Gifting: Tojiro DP Hammered Gyuto?

That Tojiro is a great looking knife, and I so wish years ago i had one like that instead of going the Shun route but...I think it would make a great gift as its stainless with the same handle your gift recipient is used to. The performance is probably identical to the DP performance. After making t...

Re: Help me narrow down my options (210 main driver)

Am not too hard on my stuff so no chips but the sld nakiri is a different animal than the bunka would be. I do have a few bunka's with super thin tips so i could see how a minor drop could damage that tip. As far as blue vs sld? I never worry about toughness when i buy a knife. These are hard and wo...

Ronnie: I usually add some Parmesan (or parm-romano mix) to the panko for my chicken parm, definitely adds some flavor.

Re: WTB Takamura Chromax 240mm Gyuto do these exist?

You could probably find a red handle santoku if you add a post to the classifieds looking for one. I know there are alot of them out there including the one I have. Great knife at a good price.

Re: Help me narrow down my options (210 main driver)

Hi: first new Japanese knife something to look forward to for sure! I have a Kohetsu sld nakiri, its a fav of mine. thin behind the edge, holds edge well and a decent handle too, plus a nice surface texture. The SLD (to me) has a nicer appearance or more character than the Kohetsu B#2 bunka but the ...

Re: Konosuke Sumiro grind

Sorry , that was a bit harsh. I got a truck for my wife years ago to haul horses without power windows etc and sold it few months later...but you could give up the tow package for one Konosuke prolly. and the future boat...Boats are worse than collecting knives for sure!
