Re: Looking to add a Nakiri

After going thru about 8 or so nakiri, I learned a few things about them, first off, a shiny finished knife is in most cases going to have little to no food release while textured sides seem to improve food release-but not maybe not as well as you might like. If you are going to spend $150 on a knif...

I'm curious as to why you have opted for a Bunka. Have you considered a 210mm Gyuto? You'll probably find the extra length of the 210mm Gyuto useful. Additionally, Bunkas have a flatter profile and are less suitable for rocking.
He already has a gyuto A Shun Premier.

Re: Bunka and Petty Recommendations

Hi: welcome to the forum! If you have read some of the previous similar questions you will know there is no such thing as "the best knife", but there are better knives depending on what you want to do and maybe in this case what strikes your fancy more. You mention clad with reactive core or all rea...

Tiffany Thiessen Tri Tip Roast with carrots! If you can get tri tip and like roasted meat, this version is awesome. Easy to make, makes its own gravy and nothing better than fall apart tender roasted meat. If you make it, use a piece of parchment paper between the lid and the pot as the lid gets nas...

Re: Millennial wedding gift

Lots of mixed thoughts for this one, but no guest list and no registry makes it seem not that important like Taz's wedding might be. Also, living at home, neither of them will have much of anything to start a household with. Im against the cash suggestion for two reasons: It can be blown easily and ...

Re: Nakiri Titans Watanabe 180 AS vs Toyama 180 AS

Ok, Im tardy. fires nearby etc but I went out and bought a bunch of cukes and carrots and here we go! Fit and Finish: The Wat had the upgraded handle, its surface seemed sealed and it might be stabilized. The Wat had a very small bubble or microchip in the rounded edge of the front of the knife.

It was Pad Thai time! In this case pix not as good as it was but the lighting in my kitchen is bad. Lots of shrimp, fried egg, green onions, pea pods, mung bean sprouts and of course lots of peanuts. Btw, for shrimp Costco shrimp is the best I think cause of no preservatives, its so firm you have to...

Yesterday and today: Some yummy imported Basmati, garden grown mini plum tomatoes, chicken cutlet and broccoli with gobs of hollandaise! Today, some sourdough discard waffles. These are the bomb if you like the buttermilk sourdough type of taste. https://i.imgur.com/NLzDOur.jpg https://i.imgur.com/v...

Re: What To Use On A CCK Handle?

You can go to Home Depot (or maybe Lowes) and buy some Howard "Feed and Wax" which does a great job on knife handles (and cabinets also I might add), but depending on what degree of sealing or protection you want, Mineral oil with beeswax is a temporary fix and like end grain butcher blocks will nee...

Two days later they were "in transit to the destination" and there was no delivery date. I waited a few days and finally wen...

Re: Nakiri Titans Watanabe 180 AS vs Toyama 180 AS

Question; Thought that the Watanabe Pro Nakiri was a Blue #2 clad with Stainless, did you buy a special with AS steel? Now that I think about it I haven’t seen Toyama in AS (not that it’s not possible). JNS just lists them as ‘blue’. OOOOOhhhh! fatal error! Musta been too hot that night. Correction...

Re: Nakiri Titans Watanabe 180 AS vs Toyama 180 AS

Going down my Nakiri journey started several years ago with a Takeda stainless clad. Then came a Tojiro Shirogami Hairline Nakiri 165mm to practice sharpening on, and then a bunch of others. The Tojiro served its purpose and was way too reactive and went away, along with the Takeda. Eventually I had...

Nakiri Titans Watanabe 180 AS vs Toyama 180 AS

Hi: Im a Nakiri fan! Few years ago i saw a Korean cooking show on PBS who used one and then watched Martha Stewart use a Nakiri, and I knew i had to try one of these. I started with a Takeda and since then have gone thru about 12 keeping the 4 I have now. Of course there are a few cleavers I had to ...
