Re: Austin knife sharpening service?

Well I dont know this guy. If you want to do it yourself - fine. If you are unsure send it to one of the sharpeners here. Shipping times are less than how long this topic has existed. Ken so true! in the future I'll be more available to help out with these, and if you want to send me a PM and maybe...

WTB Konosuke HD western style

I had some luck this month picking up one of my unicorns from my regreted trades/sales. I've come full circle so to speak. after a long journey and countless knives (no really I can't even keep track of them all, its kinda insane 😈) I'm hunting down some of the lost loves. so I figured I'd post some...

Re: How to slow down sales while on vacation?

its VERY common for shops to post information related to slowed down shipping for reasons like that. i don't think as a customer its a bad way to handle this. plus a sale is also a great motivator.

Re: Austin knife sharpening service?

Stumbled upon this guy via Instagram. He offers knife services in Austin. https://www.irontoadamant.com/ That being said, he regularly "poo-poos", for lack of a better word, prominent knife vendors. He also sells knives and claims these other vendors are gouging. I've never seen him mention CKTG by...

Re: Austin knife sharpening service?

I do regularly sharpen knives for my coworkers and family and friends. i think a large part has to with with disposable culture. allot of people are happy (because they don't know any better) with just throwing a cheap grocery store knife into the shopping cart and forgetting about it. i watched my ...

Re: Help me find a Big bad prep beast!

Neither Konosuke will have edge retention of well heat treated AS. If you need the edge retention go for AS steel or R2 HAP40 this is true. but, in practice with good technique and aproperly sharpened i regularly use my HD for 12-15 shifts without a significant lose of an edge. worse case a couple ...

Re: Help me find a Big bad prep beast!

i vote for the Konosuke HD 240mm. i picked up a western handled version after owning a few over the years and they are just great all around knives. especially in a professional kitchen. im going to end up picking up another one soon here because they just work. the western ones are a little cheaper...

Re: WTS NIB shigefusa usuba 165mm kasumi

Looks like I'm going to have to master the usuba. After handling it for a bit I see the reason they make these short guys (more so than nakiri or the santoku). In hand it feels like the best petty knife ever. I'm going to ask about about out how to make the strongest single bevel edge for regular us...

Re: WTS NIB shigefusa usuba 165mm kasumi

Weekend bump. Definitely not a work knife after I caught one of the kids at work trying to grab up a knife off my station 😠. But as a bonus I'm definitely appreciating the nakiri more. Because it's a "less desirable" style knife, I'm going to see if I can stir up a new home for this guy because Id h...

Let's round everything to $500. That is the normal way we all price things and round numbers a easier to digest. I figured I'd even it out coming into the weekend for anyone who might check this out and be interested. Any questions please feel free to PM directly and I'll get back to you as soon as ...

In other news! On this guy I finally took my own advice and figured out what could make this really sing as a my primary veggie knife. I tend to have two or three separate cutting boards setup when I'm working for different things (no including raw meat or fish that's a whole separate station and sp...
