KS vs Coleslaw!!

Post by arthurfowler » Sat Jun 09, 2018 2:00 pm

Following my recent post on how I have changed how I rotate knives, my Masamoto KS was in the chair this evening. Just knocked up some quick coleslaw with it and what a combination. It really did highlight why this knife is held in such high regard by many. I didn't gel with it immediately when I first got the knife but tonight proved why it's a keeper!!

Slide that baby through a warm turkey breast and see what happens, rainbow extraordinaire! ;)

Yeah I enjoyed my time with the two different KS knives I had. Loads of fun.

I don't really eat cabbage but I do julienne a lot of carrots and the KS is my go-to. It just feels right. Others might go to a nakiri but I only have experience with two of those and reach for neither. It is almost always the KS unless I want to try to convince myself to use another knife but then I am disappointed!

Glad to hear you are starting to click with yours. :)

About the only negative you hear about the KS is the height at the heel. Some people complain and have even sold their knife if it comes in under or even at 48mm at the heel. 49+mm at the heel and most are generally very happy with the knife.

Out of interest mine in 48mm. For me I think it was the height combined with the longer length that meant that it just felt a little alien at first!!

The only negative I can find is I can’t find one, looked several times. Someday.

Can't be happier with my new stock 270. It's around 283 but I've gotten used to it. Big home kitchen fortunately. So easy to sharpen.
