Re: Millennial wedding gift

I'd agree with cash. If you were looking for something more "meaningful", maybe some nice ceramic coffee mugs or serving bowls from someone local. I was recently gifted a large wooden bowl that I use to make Caesar salads in. The book "Flavour Bible" is one of the more useful books I own, but that p...

Re: Sharpening a petty vs a gyuto

Thanks for the replies. I can't figure out exactly what like of Kikuichi it is, but surely has different steel than the Mac. I've attached a pic of the Kikuichi, the handle is a natural wood western. Seems like I might just need more practice on small blades.

Sharpening a petty vs a gyuto

Recently I had a couple of knives to sharpen for a friend. One was an 80mm Kikuichi paring/petty with a western handle. The other was a Mac Pro gyuto. While sharpening I regularly test the edge of the blade by cutting newspaper, and I can never seem to get the petty to match the sharpness of the gyu...

I ordered 3 of these for a customer and he liked them and wanted 2 more pair to give as gifts. Made by Toshihisa Yoshizawa of Nigara.

Are you going to stock these Mark?
Ya, these would make excellent gifts for my boujee in-laws.

I'm still using the old Tojiro ITK. But I want to get a blade with a serrations for the hard crusts I'm making. Not sure which though.

... But then my question to smiths would be, why even make honesuki out of white treated at 64 etc, if its known that this knife will be "around" bone, or is it just a case of performance increase, but you really have to watch where your going type of thing?
I wonder the same thing

Re: Looking for a shallow egg pan

I would actually avoid cooking eggs on something with shallow sides if you are using a good deal of fat (i.e., not non-stick): you'll get lots of splatter all over the place, especially if you are flipping the eggs for over-easy. Yeah, I guess like Kalaeb I'm wondering what the issue is here. I've ...

Re: What did you cook today?

I may have over thought it with the egg yolk... What do y'all do to make your best burgers? My preferred method is to not mix anything into the patties, just season heavily with S&P right before cooking. I think burgers with stuff mixed in can start to feel a bit like meatballs or meatloaf, and the...

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.

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...
