Re: Field cast iron skillets factory seconds sale

Wish that shipping to Canada wasn't almost the same as the price of the pan. I would get it shipped to a city at the border and hop over for it, but that can't happen for a while. Excited to hear more about everyone's experiences with these.

That looks awesome! And I’ve got a Yuki petty that is in need of some love also. Can you add a few details of your process?

Re: Cleaver or Takeda (but not both!)

I've got a Takeda 270 gyuto and it definitely feels big (albeit light), especially for tasks like potatoes or cucumbers. The 210 bunka might be what I would go for, having experienced the 270.

Raquin 220 KT, Xerxes 265, Comet 220. RonAz let me try his Xerxes and I was hooked, thanks again Ron! Be saf...

Here is the design, I was planning on putting the board on the island opposite the window, but I can also work next to the range.
What range are you getting? (I know this is off topic, sorry)

Re: DIY Kanji

Lately I've been curious about how to do this myself, not sure of the possibilities though. I'm sure it's not just a simple thing to chisel your own kanji and make it look good. Also not interested in buying a laser etching machine that I'll use for a handdful of knives. Using a Dremel with a small...

Re: Older knives question?

I've sharpened a few of these, and they are great for learning to sharpen because of lack of bolster and how flat they are. Also, I find that knowing how relatively inexpensive a knife is allows me to be more confident in resetting the bevel (I need to work on confidence with more expensive blades a...

Thai food by David Thompson is also maybe the craziest cookbook/history of a country though cuisine. I absolutely love that book.
I picked it up a while ago. Its daunting to say the least (from a Canadian home cook perspective, anyway).

Here is the Kotetsu Shinano Blue #2 Gyuto in action.

Wish we heard more about the Shinano line. There seems to be several Kohetsu lines that don't get talked about or hyped like the HAP40.
