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 . . .

Image
Green Cabbage & Konosuke SKD Tsuchime Gyuto, 210mm
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. :)

As always (or so it feels), the weekly slaw . . .

Going with the usual dressing, mayo and apple cider vinegar-based, with a touch of yellow mustard, some finely grated sweet onion and some other business.

My new love; Spicy Sriracha honey slaw!
Brewpub chain in Sac we go has a root beer rib appetizer, and it comes with this small coleslaw dressed with a spicy hot but sweet slaw that I have taken a fancy to. So 3 kinds of cabbage, shredded carrots, dash of celery seeds and some black sesame seeds for color, and you dress it just before serving.

Basically (by weight) 3 parts mayo, .5 -.75 parts honey and 1 part Sriracha (maybe a bit less depending on your taste).
It could probaby use some fresh apple slivers or other embellishments but its fast and easy and tasty!

Got out my Misono cleaver to test here and it did well.

Nice, Bob! Somehow, I missed this when you posted it. That looks great.

Nice addition Ronnie.

Tell me, you wouldn't happen to own a 210 Shigeki Tanaka R2, would you?
The Nigara looks so similar, and they're pricing (iirc) is quite similar too, that in mind a side-by-side comparison is really really in order. What say you?
Or at the very least, a "Customer Review" write up for the Nigara, perhaps with an invitation in the title for a Tanaka R2 owner to submit his own under yours. Hm?

I only just noticed this now :shock:
What sort of experience did you have? Was it a MM Ginsan, or the older Kono Ginsan?
