Re: Everything but the kitchen sink knife recommendation?

Xexox...in that lost post, I mentioned your Artifex suggestion was excellent....saw your post before I created this one. The knife would be too long for those I see using it. I just don't know how "resilient" VG10 is compared to a german type steel. I know some of your posts disappeared. ...

Re: 240 wa gyuto recos please

Two thoughts. First, in case you don't know, a non-stainless steel knife requires a bit more care to prevent rust. Second, again, I'm sure you know this better than I do, but based on your price range being in Euros, VAT, shipping, etc. will up the price. You may want to find a vendor in Europe. I h...

Re: What would CKTG members do?

Please, everyone, stop telling them to rehandle the knife. They're suppose to send it to me and buy themselves a new knife!

Stop spoiling my chances of getting another Anryu! :mrgreen:

Re: Anyone here try the new pasta Cascatelli?

I bought it a couple days after it went on sale, but even then it was a 8-10 week lead time. Excited to try it when it eventually arrives. On a recent trip to the beach, my wife and I listened to the 5-episode saga of its creation on Dan Pashman's podcast The Sporkful. After we got home, she said &...

Re: What would CKTG members do?

I don't think you are at 150 for a rehandle...maybe a high end one with exotic materials, but a basic tapered octagon wa handle should not be that much. That being said, if you really like the knife, definitely upgrade the handle...if you are indifferent, just get a new knife. Very well said. I'll ...

Re: Kurosaki Knives video

Good to see some younger people there, learning the art.

Also, nice that it is on youtube, I don't do instagram, and the links you post here to them are blocked as possible cross site issues. Sigh, the fun I have keeping my browser locked down so tight.

Re: Another person leaving Wusthoff

Only thing I know about sharpening is that it is another rabbit hole you're headed down. Start reading the forum. Read the other threads in the knife recomendation subforum. You'll find answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet. Plus answers to the questions you do have. The reading will...

Re: Shibata (West Japan Tools) carbon pan/ skillet

I have one and am still in the process of seasoning it. I just don't need one that big very often. Plus my burners just don't evenly heat the darn thing, so when I do need one that size, the edges don't heat up very well. My stove died, and I am in the process of picking out and finding a new one, s...

Re: Japanese sickles

They weren't there yesterday. Darn it. My order has already shipped. I'll have to wait again. Hope they don't sell out before then. Sigh. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. Sad to say, but yes, Hee-Haw was something the family watched when I was a child.
