Black chef coats

Are these still taboo in the industry? I remember chefs saying only "messy" chefs wear them?

Re: How do you know you're a [CKTG/Knife] addict

I check at least 10 times a day. I feel like the old forum used to be busier to be honest. Both knife forums and Instagram seem slow. I thought it was just me. I feel like new threads were created daily, now its not so often. It doesnt stop me from checking 10 times a day though. This place is my e...

Re: Just the tip

Does it seem more apparent on more used knives that’ve been thinned a time or two or more in general on most knives? For a while I thought I had a hard time sharpening the front 1/3 of one of my knives and realized I didn’t thin it as well as the flatter portion of the heel. Excess steel behind the...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Just landed this Konosuke Fujiyama Bunka thanks to the generosity of a friend, edge length is 203mm, heel height is 56mm. I’m really happy about this one. 1C47159D-FCD2-4BCE-A978-6F271268A1A8.jpeg 06EF24BA-002E-414D-AC49-5B9CC01FF5AA.jpeg 42D1993D-5040-407E-A293-C1A992ACA4AD.jpeg 7D8C9FDF-063A-4B72...

Re: 8 inch stainless for chef

Check out the Kikuichi Swedish too https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kiswwadagy21.html I have 240 and 270 versions of the knife - thin but pack a punch - and they are beautiful knives. The steel holds an edge through long prep sessions and has a delicate tip for fine work. Plus, they are the oldest kn...

Yeah its hard to see that at the moment. The more staff that reaches out to me saying it's bs the more anno...
