Re: WTB: Butchers scimitar

So if you're actually looking for under 7 inches, and not 6-10, maybe a honesuki?

Re: 240 mm Gyuto

I don't one, but the Anryu B2 hammered gets a ton of love on here. I've seen lots of people say things like "best knife for the money" or "punches way above its price tag". It's also a really beautiful knife with the hammered pattern. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kaanasgy24.html Harukaze AS is als...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Found these in a buddy's grandpa's garage while he was clearing it out. Top 2 are Ontario Knife Co. Put an 800 grit edge on the bull nose butcher and used it tonight. Very glad I had something like this. Bones didn't seem to affect the edge, as far as I could see. The gyuto (I don't care that that i...

Re: stainless workhorse recommendation

This has already been mentioned a couple of times, but I'm super in love with my Kohetsu HAP40. I'm not a pro. But at home, I really feel like this knife can handle more abuse than most of my other knives.

Drop Point Hunter in CPM 154. It only has a 3.6 inch blade. --- Ken I know you are talking about the Bark River Drop Point Hunter, but I just looked into the original Bob Loveless Drop Point Hunter, on which the BR is based. They are all $5000 and sold out. Yowzas. https://www.arizonacustomknives.c...

Re: Hunting knife needed

Well the only practical skinning experience I have is on humans ( dont ask), so I got some expertise from someone I know whose expertise I trust. What I came away with was that for deer a 3.7 inch blade was ideal and 4" was ideal for any kind of game. Over 5" he considers in the way. Of course thes...

Re: Chef Knife made from 9/11 Building Steel

For me, it's instructive to find an analogy to help clarify my thoughts. Here's one that came to mind: How would we feel if a child of one of the sailors who died on the USS Arizona had proposed dredging up the battleship to makes some knives for charity for service members? Compare that idea with ...

There does exist a specialized knife for butchering salmon; a sakekiri.

From what I can find, the edge on 3v is tougher but A2 is easier to sharpen and gets sharper.

I would agree. But 3v isn't really too hard to sharpen. Consider Northstar in A2 or other blades as well.
