I've had almost no bad experiences with Konos, save the ginsan, but I'm 49.5+mm heel kind of guy

Used this beauty to cut some cabbage to go with unagi don tonight, as we're trying to cut down on carbs and wanted to pad out the rice. A gift from family and a joy every time I use it. Konosuke SKD tsuchime kurouchi nashiji 240.

Making the weekly slaw . . .

With only one cabbage to process, it was a pleasure from beginning to end. Still, this was a big boy; just over 1100g after coring, trimming and slicing.

Once again, the weekly slaw . . .

Image
Green Cabbage & Takamura Migaki SG2 Gyuto, 210mm

Not even close to a fair fight. This was a big cabbage, too. The Migaki is just so slicey, though. It felt frictionless through the cabbage, even when removing the core. And the 'shredding' was also a pleasure. Later, I was trimming a carrot and I honestly thought it had gone bad/soft because of how easily the knife went through it. I touched the carrot to double-check and couldn't believe, given how easily the knife cut it, how firm it was. Fun, fun knife.

Happily, just as last week's slaw was coming to an end, a new slaw was born . . .

I feel like Sisyphus with the slaw around here but it is great always having it on hand. :)
