Their scissors are comfortable and cut beautifully, if their knives do the same they may be great for regular folks (non knuts). Until I hold one Ill try not to judge. I don't see much Japanese influence on their Japanese knives though, looks Scandinavian through and through.

The yanagi kind of looks like an incredibly long honesuki. I doubt it has a hollow back, so maybe it is just a really long honesuki.

They don't. It's cheap knives in really cheap steels. They - used - to have decent steel back in the days, but now it's basically rubbish.
Atleast on their standard-line. I have no idea about the fuzion, but as they don't even know what the knives they produce really are, i doubt it's any better

Actually, the profile on it is not that bad, and grip is probably comfortable - remember, most people use hammer grip.

By no means it is the ugliest knife in my book. Shun Onion, on the other hand, is among a few contenders for that title.
But hey, it's all relative, one man's ugly, is another's functional.

I actually have had this knife for years (an ebay special). It is ugly, but it truly, actually, works! the holes release the food (great with cucumbers, onions, and carrots) and the line above then in the picture is actually a raised ridge about 1mm thick that pushes the food away from the blade. The steel is about equivalent to Global steel in sharpenability and edge retention.



I think this one gets the double whammy. Worst looking knife and worst name

I was doing some business with a guy before, unrelated to knives, and when he asked me about making knives and whatnot, he showed off some EXACTLY like those. I was, uh, not too impressed. Corian storage board thing. Fit and finish wasn't exactly seamless. Not to mention key performance aspects...

i was at my mother-in-law's for dinner tonight, and seeing her cutting some salmon filets was just painful. she was using some kind of dull serrated knife, and really struggling to get cuts started. i've offered to get some of her other knives sharpened (she has a couple very dull Warthers that could be made into decent knives), and her son is a knife enthusiast and has offered the same, but she just isn't interested. she is a pretty big cooking enthusiast, too.

I know this one has already been mentioned, but it's popping up on clearance sales all over the place lately and deserves another look. Hard to understand why they haven't all been snapped up...who doesn't want a knife that has "a front edge "Santoku" for all chopping and slicing, while also incorporating a longer chop length similar to a mezzaluna". Not to mention that orange handle.

I actually bought that dog knife for my son. He loves it! And that yanagi earlier with the holes in it. Oh ya. I have that! My Mom bought it for me from a thrift store a few years ago. Knows I like knives so bought me a "Japanese Knife." So I pull it out and use it when she's over even though I'm left handed and it's shall we say tricky. Those holes are awful and get gummed up with everything. Actually it sharpens up pretty nice and taught me how to sharpen single bevel knives.

We grind our burgers here at the restaraunt from fresh cut hanger steaks. I always do a 'tester' by searing it for about a minute each side, flipping it four times, so four minutes total. Gives it a nice even thin crust, and a barely warmed center. Never had a better burger...

Pretty emotive subject!
For me, a gourmet burger may have pink middle if made freshly from steak cuts, but burgers by nature are made from everything. If I have ground offal that isnt cooked through that for me isnt only a health risk but a big turn off. Even mince, dont trust it. By increasing the surface area of food you increase risk of food bourne nasties.

Living in Britain you'll be lucky if its beef in your burger and not horse! We also tend to be over cautious when it comes food due to things such as the BSE scare in the 90's. So no I am not joking, it's a combination of things that puts me off eating pink burgers.

There is apparently a gastropub in London who are serving a 100% horse burger special at the moment - "No beef. No bull" - all sourced from a high-end butcher on Borough Market.

Not sure about the Wusthof jumping the shark so much as "designed to look like a shark". I think you are supposed to use the holes to poke a chopstick through, which dislodges the food that has stuck to it.

It's nicknamed the butcher's tenderloin for a reason my friend- extra tasty, but quite an ugly cut. Which is why most butchers relegate it to a take home/grinding cut. And a lot of restaurants shy away from it because its none too appealing to look at whole, it's a ***** to slice it for plating(awkwardly shaped, and if youre selling high volume, slicing steaks is just a pain in general, we slice ours btw...)and if the customer doesn't cut against the grain whilst eating it- they'll think it to be rather tough due to its coarse grain. I personally love the suckers. One of my fave cuts, and I put it on my menu in various forms: tar-tar, meatballs, burgers, composed entrees- it's a very versatile cut. And fairly cheap too, if you know how to break em down.

It's nicknamed the butcher's tenderloin for a reason my friend- extra tasty, but quite an ugly cut. Which is why most butchers relegate it to a take home/grinding cut. And a lot of restaurants shy away from it because its none too appealing to look at whole, it's a ***** to slice it for plating(awkwardly shaped, and if youre selling high volume, slicing steaks is just a pain in general, we slice ours btw...)and if the customer doesn't cut against the grain whilst eating it- they'll think it to be rather tough due to its coarse grain. I personally love the suckers. One of my fave cuts, and I put it on my menu in various forms: tar-tar, meatballs, burgers, composed entrees- it's a very versatile cut. And fairly cheap too, if you know how to break em down.

Yeah one of my faves too. But yes, ugly- you almost HAVE to slice it:) Both places I've worked that served it sliced it. I was a lot younger when I worked at the first, and sometimes I would 'accidentally' forget a sliver on the cutting board when I put the plate in the food window:hungry: Is this technically a thread hijack since we're still discussing something ugly?

LOL at the top review:


For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. "Use a knife!" they say. Well...my parole officer won't allow me to be around knives. "Shoot it with a gun!" Background check...HELLO! I had to resort to carefully attempt to slice those bananas with my bare hands. 99.9% of the time, I would get so frustrated that I just ended up squishing the fruit in my hands and throwing it against the wall in anger. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed. No longer consumed by seething anger and animosity towards thick-skinned yellow fruit, I was able to concentrate on my love of theatre and am writing a musical play about two lovers from rival gangs that just try to make it in the world. I think I'll call it South Side Story.

Banana slicer...thanks to you, I see greatness on the horizon.

HA ! I was going through this thread and I have a confession to make... OK I have one :) I got it for a small bread knife on line and it worked great. Went through baguettes like butter and was great on tomatoes if needed. It's dulled down a bit now and I have no intention on trying to sharpen it unless one day I need to torture myself. I did get it when Shun was still offering free sharpening but wasn't able to take advantage of it before they quit. It's retired now and only comes out when I'm working on a pineapple which I have to say it works great on.

And yes it does have my signature shunned tip that I seemed to put on all of them.

I love this paragraph,
Welcome to Don's Knives gallery of unique personalized carbon steel hand-forged cutting blades. From rail-road spike knives to unique Rasps made with a unique birds-eye grip my knives are fashioned with the human hand in mind. How easily a knife slices is based on how the blade is tempered and the edge that the Bladesmith tempers into the knife and my blade are tempered "carbon sharp". I take advantage of every benefit that the carbon steel used in the blade allows me without weakening the blade. If you have never used a tempered blade then you are in for a treat. The ease of the slice will make you think about the knife you currently slice with.

In a line without refined waste, the maximum
A which takes a **** in pursuit of ergonomics in the kitchen
It is available for every work.

Mast Ladd develops it, and obtained a patent; France
It becomes the praise product of the cook church.

Oh, the grip of **** is settled in a hand with スッポリ,
For cutting fine and a slice, various movement including the changing screens
I can cope skillfully. With the Luke design is beautiful
A which takes a **** to promise the sharpness that is a high level for
MOMA museum of ・ of New York

I've imagine a **** would make a comfortable handle, it just makes sense people....

My favorite thing about this knife is that I was reading the description of it on SLT's website to my wife and when I got to the part where they talk about the specially designed "ridge deflector" she just blurted out "What the hell does it deflect, photon torpedoes?" It also seems that Wusthof has keyed in on the awesome power of speed holes as well now.

Here's the other "set" from that site: complete with ginsu-serrated sword. Marketers have been playing up the "made by a swordsmith" angle for a while when selling j-knives, I guess someone figured they could just make them look like (cartoon) swords and have them made by some kid in China.
