Re: Breaking down whole fish

I'm sure I'll be the least experienced person to reply on this thread, but I've been happy with my double bevel deba from Moritaka for breaking down fish. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/moritakadeba1.html Either a double sided deba or a double sided funayuki may be good options. Idk. Just tryin to ...

Re: Breaking down whole fish

Good recs and advice. If I was breaking down whole fish regularly, large and small, I could see myself having a small knife roll dedicated to the tasks. Don't know that I could pick just one or two. I like rays suggestion best. Sorry Mark :P

Also the best laser I've used so far. Get one and if it's really not what you want, return it. If you like laser performers it won't matter to you either way I've got one coming, it should be here on Monday, I have one of his bunka's in R2 (great knife), I just wanted a more traditional shaped gyut...

Kurosaki laser w/ hand chiseled kanji collector's item?

Just wondering here, since I'm considering selling multiple knives. Being that most Kurosaki knives are/have moved to laser engraving, does that mean that we will never see these smiths making knives with hand chiseled kanji ever again? Also, would that mean that knives from Yu with hand chiseled ka...

Yes tasty, one of my favs.
Ya. So damn good. I put it on all my breakfast hash. Sometimes I just reach in the fridge and poor some on my hand and lick it off.

Re: Makoto Sakura SG2 vs masakage Yuki

Have not used any of those. the makoto seems so much like the Kurosaki laser. I'm sure it's amazing. I've been eyeing the anryu blue and the kanehiro as lately. Too many good choices right? That Harukaze seems like an amazing knife for the price. I e heard good things about it, but it is curvy compa...

Re: Makoto Sakura SG2 vs masakage Yuki

This has turned into an interesting thread. I for one would not suggest you get hung up on spine thickness. For instance I have a Kurosaki AS laser which is thicker than you're really wanting, but this thing is still light and performs amazing! You'd be surprised perhaps with blades that are a littl...

Re: Katsushige Anryu

His B2 and AS clad hammered series are legendary in my eyes. I have a bunch of his blades, and every time I cut with one I am impressed. I have used knives that cost four times as much that don't cut as well through most products. In terms of performance, grind, and steel... man, he's really hard t...
