Re: Second project knife

I got my addict through the classifieds late last year (Addict 2 in CPM154). Absolutely love it for big veg as its tall. If you build the same height and profile, I'll jump. May have to take some heat from the SO, but I could always give a knife to my cousin to make up for it - he loves my Addict (h...

Re: Looking for new chef's knife. Seasoned chef here.

My HAP40 blades take eons to develop a patina, so the steel might make a great choice for you - my Kohetsu stuff performs very well. I'm surprised that this has not crossed your mind https://www.chefknivestogo.com/koswstgy241.html Especially considering how many love Konosuke blades here (I have my ...

Re: semi steel makers?

HAP40 knives just take a bit longer on the stones - even my very soft stones can get them sharp - it takes about 20% longer to sharpen a HAP40 blade than a B2 one on my stones

Re: go to recipes for the whole fam (young children)

My youngest daughter started with farfelli pasta, asparagus, mushrooms and marscapone. Sauté half a medium onion in olive oil, add a few cloves of crushed garlic and cook until perfume comes out, add some asparagus cut into 2" pieces, then some crimini or maitaki mushrooms and a generous pinch of sa...

Re: 210 Gyuto, Home cook, I think this is what I need/want

It's a personal thing, so you may be joining many of us in the rabbit hole. No "best" knife in existence for everyone, but we all have out favorites. I like this for a 210 under $200 https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kohawagy21.html They are great performers for the buck - I used mine for a few things ...

Re: Konosuke Blue Honyaki 240mm gyuto with custom handle - SOLD!

It depends on what you call money. A bank account is nice, but this is an ivestment that you can use if nothing else. First Honyaki knife I bought was a bit under 300 bucks (27500 yen in 1994 - still have sales slip) - used it a couple times, and oiled the blade and ebony (back then it was okay to h...

Re: Gyuto under $340?

The old Richmond AS Laser 240 is now a Kurosaki - I asked for one on the classifieds and found one. Very nice knives and my chef bud still uses his as his almost only knife. I have tried mine a few times and it is a beast of a cutter - light, but performs like a heavy knife.

180 gyuto

Given some of the comments about smaller gyutos here, and that I have been told to use my Kikuichi petty as a small knife (she's right - I never use it at home) I have been thinking about getting a 180 gyuto as a "short" knife. I talked to my buddy (lady chef - 4' 10" woman who uses a 180 as her bas...

Re: semi steel makers?

HAP40 knives don't get much of a patina - great steel for a busy cook. It takes an edge that's near W1, and holds it very well. I have two kohetsu blades that are HAP40, and you can see the start of a patina after a couple years, but it's nothing like a white or blue steel knife - I love AS as it is...

I just finished prepping lamb shanks and veg with my Kono HD2 (decided I would use it instead of my Ultimatum) - profile is good (not a Sab profile - oh well, I'll make do) and the thing just drops through food of all sorts. What a great knife - might have to start using it more. You don't realize h...

I buy them on the stalk, and take them off one at a time with a knife tip (usually a 210) and then take off the bad leaves and split them. Olive oil, salt, pepper, and pine nuts and into the oven at 350 until soft (depends on how big they are) - pull em out, add some lemon juice and a bit of zest an...
