Re: Shibata Kashima R-2 250mm Gyuto

Have a friend that has a Shibata and that knife just has a magical feel to it. I've wanted an R2 and Shibata for a long time but just don't like his crazy flat K tip knives. Had wished he had a standard style gyuto for a long time. Knew I wouldn't have a chance at the Kashima with all those waiting ...

Ah, just get over it Tom. If it's not Jbart blathering on making you want to buy it's another enabler here.

Re: Doi Gyutos shipping next week.

I need to go start looking for some things to sell to recoup some of the cost for the day. Maybe I have a few drawer queens I can let go of.

Re: Yet another 240 Gyuto Recommendation Request

You've got some good knives for the money in that list. All would serve you well given what your using. The three I like the most would be the Kanehiro AS, Gehei Blue #2 and Kurosaki AS. Not necessarily in that order. For home use I wouldn't get too hung up on steel. They will all be much better tha...

Re: Kono laser suji grinds

I've had a Kono White #2 300mm Suji for 5 years. It has a pretty thin grind and is a great slicer, it has always performed well for me. It does have some flex but is stiffer than you might think.

It's what he thinks is the most dangerous, not what causes them to use the most Band-Aides at work.
