Very nicely done indeed!

No choil shots, though.
Nor MM series, either
I could be wrong but I think I remember hearing that the MM line is discontinued. Guessing that might be why it's not on the site.

Ya, I get a lot of funny looks/questions from friends/in-laws :lol:
Do you get the "How come you have so many knives when you can only use one at a time" question?
Big time! Followed up by "do you actually use all of them?" and "which one is the best?"

Re: 210 gyuto workhorse and 240 upgrade recommendation

Thanks for the comments; really appreciate the input. I also considered the Kanehide PS60, but really want to stay under $100 for a beater. Any thoughts on Daovua knives? Look very rustic, but how would they compare to the Fujiwara? I have a petty and it is pretty fun, but they are very different f...

A while back I went deep into research on proper woks. I am sure that will work, but I would start with a charcoal chimney.
Like the thing people use to get the charcoal burning? (I'm a gas grill guy :roll:) Just put a wok on top of the chimney once its going?

Tao Charcoal Burner

I'm wondering if anyone has used these or has any valid opinions on them. They look really interesting. I do not have a gas range that I can use a wok on, and these seem like a cool option. Already I am thinking it would be a lot of setup for a short time of use. https://importfood.com/index.php?opt...

I started with Choseras: 400, 1k, 5k. I've since added the 800 and 3k. I definitely would not be returning your stones you purchased.

Re: How to install wa handle with epoxy

Why boiling water and not a 210* oven or a heat gun? Boiling water can’t destroy a blade temper. Cheap ovens can swing by 100 F, that can ruin a temper. So, What kinda plastic bags? Ziploc style? And is the boilng water a rolling boil, or just water that boiled Andis now hot? Thanks (the pot is on ...

Re: How to install wa handle with epoxy

Prep is everything. 1) make sure you can get a good dry fit, a little big is ok. 2) have gloves, all exposed surfaces taped or coated in board butter. 3) mix epoxy, I like 5 min, other installers like more time. 4) I use a 10 ml syringe, you can get them at the pharmacy for toddler oral med dosing....

Re: Coronovirus in the kitchen

With only 6 new cases in the past two weeks in Manitoba and around 300 total cases, I feel a bit out of the loop. Restaurants here are opening, teachers are back at school (no kids though). I looked at the number of daily/total cases (20-30k/2.1M) in The States today and was actually floored. I knew...
