My Tsourkan

Post by Jeff B »

240mm 52100, I bought this at the Chicago reception. Have only had a chance to dice an onion but first impressions are very high. The knife feels very solid, great in hand and performed well! Love the profile, hoping to get a lot of quality use this coming week.

Hey Jeff. Congratulations on your pickup. As you're pretty well aware... I love my Tsourkan A2 250.

Looking forward to hearing more but I'd say your initial impressions are spot on.

You have a lot of knives with a variety of grinds, and you feel the differences. I'd love to have more feedback (after you've lived with the knife for a while) on just how you think the grind is shaped and how it performs on different types of ingredients. As you know, this goes far beyond a choil shot and has a lot more to do with the shape of the blade road, etc., from heel to tip!

The feedback I have read about his knives is pretty consistent, I hope I can get one of his gyutos soon.
