Re: If you had only one knife to bring to work

People don’t use my knives, if for some reason they think it’s alright they will not do it again. No matter where your at on the totem pole people need to respect your tools.

Your good, some of my butcher knives that use sk steel, I believe, take on a blackish patina like that easily. Red stuff is when you have a problem. Most of my carbons don’t have the lovely blues and whatnot people post pictures of. They’re mostly a crappy looking orange that will eventually go to a...

Re: How much of a jump is it going from a DE to a straight?

I went from using regular straights to disposables, of course after the Gillette Mach whatever. Never did a DE till I got a little lazy and just wanted to try it. I was also into the fancy smancy creams/soaps, brushes and disposable straights. Making a good lather goes a really long way imo. I got l...

Re: You know you're a chef when...
