$180 . :o

I use it a ton.

I use mine a lot for making a pasta sauce in and then throwing cooked pasta into it to stir and coat. I know you are supposed to add sauce to pasta and not vice versa, but this way is simple.

Re: Konosuke comparison

I find that having searched for "the perfect knife" I have purchased so many "very nice to great knives" that I just don't cook often enough to justify having them all. It get right back to personal preference and I find that some very excellent knives just sit... Oh I'm so passed that it is no lon...

Not at all cabbage, but chuck roast, pre-burger. The way it looked after cutting was kinda cabbage-like so I'm going for it. Mods, feel free to delete if this is too offensive for this thread. MM?

Any guesses what knives these are?

My Aunt in Vancouver has these 3 knives. The gyuto was bought a few years ago,not sure where. The two pettys were just picked up in Japan by her daughter. Says she picked the pettys up for around $80 a pop. Wondering if anyone recognizes them or the kanji. I know the photo quality is poor, not much ...

Not a handle, but a new saya. This is my first time making a three piece...much easier than carving out a cavity.

Re: Chef Knife

I am really liking the kanehide. I have a few more questions: how often will it need to be sharpened? What is the easiest and cheapest tool i can use to sharpen it? Since the knife looks like it is single sided; are single sided knives harder to Sharpen? Thank you. I picked up one of these a couple...

Beautiful knife! GLWS.

Btw, and I'm sorry that this isn't the most ideal place to be asking this, but can anyone tell me the proper way of saying 52100 out loud? Is it "fifty two one hundred," or something else?

Re: Chef Knife

The Kohetsu HAP40 240 was my first real Japanese knife and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Very durable, excellent cutter. I have the wa handled version but I suspect the western handle performs very similar if not identical. Also glad I went for a 240 over a 210. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/koh...

Re: Show us your new handle

Brought my Yahiko Ice hakata to a local knife maker, Marc Liss of Origin Handcrafted (@origin_handcrafted on Instagram). I was able to look at and touch the materials he had, which was a unique experience. And I had input on the size and taper of the handle. The body of the handle is Manitoba maple ...
