Re: Petty knives for steak knives?

Do you (think you could) use this at the dinner table? I haven't yet got around to owning one of these classics, although I should with all the camping I do. Is the steel stable enough to sit wet at the table for an hour while eating? If not, would it be after forcing a patina? --- It depends on yo...

Re: Konosuke White #2 Fujiyama No. 6 Cleaver - FOUND!

What's the grind like gladius? Mine is pretty high and thin. Some mizunos I've seen look a little different. --- The grind on both Fujiyamas are high but the White No.2 is thinner behind the edge and overall. The Blue No.2 is stouter and immediately feels it: 19.35 ounces vs 17.80. The stouter B#2 ...

Re: Konosuke White #2 Fujiyama No. 6 Cleaver - FOUND!

Thanks Ray. It is nicely made with appearance very similar to Sujimoto No.6 while the Fujiyama Blue No.2 appears similar to the Mizuno Tanrenjo Cleaver! ;)

Re: What did you cook today?

Fantastic! I tried making gnocchi a year ago and it failed miserably. Came all apart when I put it in the boiling water. I'm thinking my potatoes were too lumpy, as I didn't have access to a ricer. Any tips or a foolproof recipe? --- The egg is the binder, keep it a little sticky - vigorously boil....

Re: Second project knife

An Addict 2 using PM steel like the original SLD would be a winner. HAP40 would be my first choice and be a chef's favorite. A more affordable handle but still a nice one would work better for the target audience.

That video is still the bomb!

Re: All hail the mighty Anryu.

The Anryu Mizu gyuto 240 is superior. It has the same Anryu grind and thinness behind the edge but is overall a stouter blade. I had the hammered in 210 & 240 but sold them in favor of the Mizu.
