Re: Hunting knife needed

Drewski, Top is the Classic with a 3-5/8"blade,middle is the Bob Bat Hunter with a 3-1/2" blade and the bottom is the Frontier Valley with a 3 inch blade. Notice the handle size in comparison to each other. All seem just fine to me but I gravitate to the shorter blades for the control that I prefer...

Re: Hunting knife needed

Here is the Bob Cat Hunter by Bark River with CPM154 How do you find the slightly smaller Bobcat vs the Classic Drop Point? Based on online specs, the blade is about a quarter inch shorter but the handle is about a half inch shorter. Blade is also thinner on the Bobcat. Any preferences? Noticeable ...

Re: Whipped Cream Siphons

Hmm I watched a Bobby Flay brunch show where he made it with strawberries and it looked great. does this recipe come close to what its supposed to be? https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/strawberries-filled-with-clotted-cream-1961473 That's interesting, but I'd say no.

Re: Stainless or stainless clad beater workhorse.

Can't help with locating a Sabatier (I'd buy it out from under you if it was a pre-70's if I could), but a Mac Mighty is a really good "beater" - I have a couple of them, and would let any of my guests use them. Still razors that can take a beating in the wrong hands. Far better than a German blade...

Re: Whipped Cream Siphons

My partner uses one a few times a year. I think they are fun. While in England, we tried using "double cream" in it which is about 48% fat (our premise is more fat = better). However, being so much more than the 35% in heavy cream, it whipped in the canister, but would not come out. Lesson learned. ...

Has anyone had the chance to try the new product? I think it's pipeline steel and it has a new handle
Didn't know what you were referring to until I went to look. Will be interested to hear how the handle and different steel compare.

Re: Wide and narrow convex grinds on Bark River knives

Wide and narrow convex grinds on Bark River knives As many of you know I AM a fan of Bark River knives and impressed with the initial factory grinds on their knives. But I also like to experiment a bit. I reground this knife (Aurora 3v LT) with a much more acute and wider angle - still convex. I'm ...

Re: How many BTU do I need?

Went big with a 48 inc grill which is nice to have. Get a big hood! I sourced a used Wolf 54” island hood and put in a remote 1500cfm blower. Will ...

Re: How many BTU do I need?

I still don't own a house, but seem to sometimes find myself obsessing over what range I want. I was recently at a home reno show and there was an appliance company there with a bunch of brands, and they steered me toward Thermador, as I was asking about open burner stoves. The Thermador has star sh...

Re: Stainless or stainless clad beater workhorse.

I love my 270 Mac pro and used it pretty much exclusively for a year as a home user. Also agree with the Kohetsu HAP40 rec. It's the knife that I got to replace my Mac.

My Staub lids have the same black coating as the inside from edge-to-edge.
And I don't care if some of you think I was being picky. For that price, I expect perfection.

I cook a large stock pot of 200 eggs at a time which is not ideal but I need to be able to meet the demand. It takes me a...

Re: 60 grit stone is here!

Gave the 150 bamboo a go tonight. Was a bit surprised how quickly the water went through it. I can see why people have a sink bridge, the water just pours out the bottom of the stone. I anticipate the 60 grit to be even more of a challenge. Probably around 10 seconds until the stone top no longer h...
