Re: The doubt is pulling me apart

Takamura is a knife that must be experienced. I chop with mine and have had no issues.

Out of those frying pans I would only get the 11 inch or the 12.6 inch because they have an extra 0.7mm thickness of aluminum in the cladding making for 3.7mm thick aluminum core.
the 9.5" is full thickness as well, only the 7.9" is 3mm

Re: Kitchenware Deals Sub Forum?

Does anyone know how often these seconds sales from All-Clad come around? I just bought a few pans but would be interested in more in the future if it turns out I like them. It would also be super helpful if the forum mentions it next time, it doesn't seem there's a way to get an email with a "seco...

I've bought a bunch of things from them over the years, most items I have trouble finding the blemish and the ones I have didn't seem like a big deal.

Re: Ogata Shungo 240m guyto W#2 with iron cladding and custom handle

I apologize for the delay in shipping this knife out, I had it all packed up and ready to go before I went on vacation and then left it on the kitchen table, sorry about that. I enjoyed using the knife and understand from George's explanation why it's so similar to knives like Masakage and Kurosaki....

A bit of oil and low heat = non stick in any pan.
This is truth, I fry eggs all the time in stainless clad, no sticking except I use a little butter with eggs.

Re: One pan to rule them all?

I have been down the romanticized roads of cast iron and carbon steel but the truth is if you have an uneven heat source (i.e. most residential gas stoves) you will have hot/cold spots and slow response to temperature control and as the OP stated twice, at least the cast iron is heavy for flipping. ...

Re: One pan to rule them all?

Same answer as for J knives, there isn't a one to rule them all. As for what you seem to be looking for I would recommend checking out All-clad MC2 and Vollrath because you don't seem to want heavy pans.

there's a guy on youtube who has sharpened knives successfully using a brick but barring that I'd recommend the red 1K brick on the website.

Re: How to reduce sticktion?

reading this only further baffles me as to why my Takamura R2 210 doesn't have stiction issues, I use it as my primary potato knife as no matter how wet it gets they just don't stick!
