Re: Top Three (Right Now)

I'll play!

Shi-Han 260. White 2/wrought iron. Perfect grind.
Kochi 240. Blue 2/iron. Just feels right in my hand.
Xerxes Primus 230. Laser! The tip is impossibly thin.

Re: Butter Spreader

I really like my Robert Herder carbon breakfast knife. Thin, flexible, and can get as sharp as anything. I use it almost every morning. Opinal has a brunch knife that looks similar.

Re: Hard boiled egg problem

I've had the best (by far) results from steaming. In a Dutch oven, bring about two inches of water to a boil. Place eggs in a steamer basket, place in the Dutch oven, cover and cook for 11 minutes. Then transfer eggs to an ice bath. I think I got it from Cook's Illustrated. Works really, really well.

Any opinions on the Hattori FH?
I own a Hattori FH honesuke and really like it. It's one of my most used knives because of the amount of chicken we eat. Comfortable handle. Steel gets nice and sharp without too much hassle.

Re: When to teach knife skills to kids

I made my kids wood knives that they like to mimic what I was doing at that age. I don't know exactly when they started using real knives I was probably around 5. My 3.5 year old uses a wooden knife (santoku), too, and a little cheese/spreading knife made of metal. I've taught her the pinch grip, a...

I bought it for my wife, but she just loves the Mizuno and this one gets neglected. If you like light, you'll love this little devil. Co...

That looks a lot like the one I have, mine measure 260x59. I’d call it twins. Have you ever been to his shop? I've been a few times, actually (I live just a bit south of Santa Fe). I got to see and handle your knife, actually, when I picked mine up. Yours is just a bit bigger, as you noted. The gri...

This Shihan came in today. It’s a 260 wrought iron Gyuto. This year I’m seeking out knives from blacksmiths from all over the world. Its confusing because his business name is Shihan and his name is Shehan, I’m sure there’s a good reason. Anyways, this knife surpassed my expectations, exceptional i...

Re: Looking to buy a kiritsuke gyuto

Are there particular attributes you're looking for in a new K-tip (e.g., more workhorse geometry, better food release, longer edge retention, tougher blade, etc...)? Is there something you want this K-tip to do that your gyuto can't do? Answering those questions might help narrow down what you're lo...

Corned beef and cabbage. I sous vide the beef, then pressure cooked the cabbage (and other veg) in the beef juices once it was done cooking. Delicious.
