Re: Knife for steaks, pork, chicken breasts and brisket

I have to agree with Jeff on this one that a 240 appears too long for work like removing silver-skin. I usually use my 150 petty (Yoshikane) but got one of the color series Tojiro Honesuki to play with and find i use it more now. They are still available but only from Japan and come in several colors.

Re: Recommendation for family

I was also here at one point but agonized over a nakiri for a month before getting one (that I still have after a few years) I like japanese handles more than western as they seem more comfortable to me, but prefer a sealed western type handle for dealing with meat/seafood. Most of my knives have ja...

Looks like the wrong knife for the job. Maybe she should be using a nakiri?

Jeffry: Did the knife experience any similar negative effects like the previous Yoshimi SG2 passaround? Im talking about the drag caused by the damascus.

Re: Favorite kitchen scale

ATK recommends the OXO model and i got one. Uses AAA batteries and works really well. best part is the readout panel can slide out for those larger bowls etc that would normally hide the display.

Re: Which AS Kurouchi to choose

Koishi is going to be heavier an the Harukaze appears closer to a laser. How beefy of a knife do you want? I would go for the Anryu since i like octagonal handles better than the oval handle on the Harukaze. Koishi Anryu Harukaze Height 51 51 50 Spine width 3.8 3.5 2.1 Blade length 244 244 245 Weigh...

Re: All-Clad Factory Sale is ON!!!!

I have had a few MC2 (when i got them they were just Master Chef) for 25 yrs now and if you want a beater sauce pan or large pot for boiling water these are great. I never worry about the exterior or banging them around BUT they sure don't have the eyeball of the newer stainless exterior rolled lip ...

Re: Knife recommendation please. White steel?

Bob Z, I came across the SLD and loved the looks of it. Having stainless for the blade would be a plus but my concern would be about the cutting edge not being as easy to sharpen or keep an edge. I haven't had to sharpen my sld yet only strop it occasionally on newspaper or compound. This knife see...

Re: Show us your new knife!

I spent a long time looking for the steel also but ended up getting the knife cause it was stainless and looked great, but maybe this might help:

It seems that its super vg-10 if that helps.

Re: Knife recommendation please. White steel?

Kohetsu also makes an SLD version in 180 which is a little beefier than the last two, and for all purposes stainless with a bonus of having some eyeball. I also think the handle is nicer. I have an Nakiri version in this and love it.

The Kanji get lost in the pattern. The grind on this one is very very close to the grind on my 210 Anryu B#2 hammered. It cuts and looks very nice.

Re: SHUN HIKARI BLADE STEEL ??

Looks like their website says this: Hi Jeff. The Hikari Chef’s Knife features 71 alternating micro layers of VG10 & VG2 high-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel Damascus. I havent seen anyone in this forum talk about having one of these and if it works as advertised. Why not get one and let us know?

Re: Carbon Skillets

Copper does have the best conductivity and also patinas fairly quick. I have two sauce pans, one I let go au natural and one I polish on a frequent basis. The patina does not affect the performance at all, it is all just a matter of personal preference, similar to knives I suppose. I agree with you...

Re: Carbon Skillets

From reading what their site says, it has the best heat conductivity of all the metals but looking at my sterling silverware that sits out, I bet it will end up looking like a carbon steel knife after the patina fades and get to be a nasty gray color. But we look forward to you getting one and letti...
