Re: When things go missing.

This gives me hope. I sold a 17 volume of “Lucky Peach” magazines and sent USPS. They “Lost” it and haven’t heard anything since. Maybe it’ll show up. Good story Mark.

Re: Chicago Knife Show

I think we’ll be going back Monday morning the 17th. We can have a second get together at our office in the afternoon and follow it with dinner. Anyone that wants to travel up to see our new office is welcome to come. If it’s nice out we can go to the University of Wisconsin Union Terrace and drink...

Re: Bread knife

It’s not what you want, but the Wustof double serrated is by far the best bread knife I’ve ever used. About $120 new. Got mine on eBay new for less than $90. Only bread knife I’ve tried that effortlessly cuts thru the hardest crust and can slice bread exceedingly thin. Just as sharp now as when I b...

I love the felt guards, too, but I would not want to try to use them with single bevels. They're usually thicker than I think the felt guard could handle.
Great point!. Even thicker knives, like my old Megumi are a bit too thick for knife guards like that

Re: How do you store your saya-less J-knives?

I have lots of flip open magnetize knife guards. I like them best. Protective and thin: won’t bulk up the knife roll, though have not used the felt lined plastic cktg guards yet. Those seem amazing though

Re: How do you store your saya-less J-knives?

I tend to do newspaper and homemade cardboard sayas before I'd use the plastic style blade covers. Mark does sells some felt lined covers that seem pretty awesome but I have yet to pickup any. Forum guys (and gals): If you buy a knife put a note in the comments box that reads “thanks Mark for the f...

Re: Perfect 240 suji

Mark just added a 240mm Kanehide Bessaku TK Suji at $80: https://www.chefknivestogo.com/kabesuri24.html Did you consider it? I have the original 270 and think it a great purpose-made value. Totally looked at it. I’m just such a priss about real kanji, especially if I want it to be a forever knife.

Re: Bread knife

Of course! I just wondered if there’s a better option for a 240. I didn’t really say that at first, but that’s my hopes

Bread knife

So, what’s the best bread knife? I like scalloped edges, no serrated blades. Don’t want anything longer than 270, though prefer 240. Don’t care about handle type. Won’t use very frequently. I’m right handed and looking for something that would be a nice fit for a pro environment. Really looking on t...
