I'm not sure whether or not there is a thread like this already, but I thought it might be fun for all us working stiffs to show what we use on the regular (not your entire bag) and keep close at hand while on the line, etc. I currently work in a natural market doing prepared meals and have plenty of room, hence my multiple tools:

-Konosuke fujiyama 240mm gyuto
-Konosuke fujiyama 240mm kiritsuke gyuto
-small veg cleaver (no. 4) from a local asian market
-Dickoron sapphire steel
-wooden tasting spoon

What are you guys/gals keeping on your line?

macmiddlebrooks, why do you have two identical gyutos?

They are very different (to me). The kiri has a much flatter profile and is very thin...I use it on most veg. The regular gyuto is noticeably thicker and I use it on proteins.

So what do you use the Veg cleaver for?

Herbs and the couple of cases of squash that needs to be broken down into coins mostly, but sometimes it's used to julienne onions if I'm in a hurry....or whatever :). Best 6 dollars I'll every spend on a knife, that's for sure.

it matches up and then some!! it took some time to get the bevel where i wanted it but now that i have it where i like it, it performs beautifully. a side note that may make a difference on why i love that knife so much is that the geometry of the knife itself seems to have been made for my preferred way to sharpen. i bought it from a member who did some work on it but it would have taken me like 1 more hour if i had gotten it from scratch. really i got it where i like it in like 3 hours time and am reaping the benefits. it is one of my favorites because i put the time into it and would never let it go.

i still love my konosuke knives but i kinda keep them around for special tasks and fish fabrication.

Not that I'm a pro in the same sense, trust me, I do cook for a living (at least part of what I do is cook), and I currently use a Global chef knife (seriously, but only until a project of mine is done), and/or a Forschner chef knife and parer. All of these knives take a licking!

I use it for butchering and portioning steaks, breaking down whole chickens and ducks, as a lobster splitter, slicing roasts, Portioning pork belly, and I have used it as my line knife in the past for slicing duck breast or skirt steak to order. For most tasks like this it is significantly better than a gyuto.

Used to have an 80mm Suisin parer with a custom sheath from Eamon in my pocket at all times (that's why I had the sheat made).

How often does the Hayate go to work with you?

bieniek
07-21-2012, 03:13 PM
Heldentenor, It stays at work, in the office. Last time we ordered tuna, Hayate was very happy - he told me.
Unfortunately, when the fish actually arrived, price pr kilo doubled [from 180 kroner to 367!]! It rose virtually overnight. And nobody informed us.
So weve sent fish back and Mr Hayate sleeps in the box waiting.
I dont know if its because theres no more tuna [it was a bluefin] or whats the story. We'll try to order again.

I have made other box for my single beveled knives. Show off planned when lacquering is done and handle mounted.
I was looking for a handle for like two months. Finally I got something more or less fitting the concept.

Yeah, I am quite crazy about my hands... Especially when cutting down whole fish.

How do you sharpen yours? I just ordered the 270mm suji whoot! It will slay hundreds of maki and slice fish at the same time :P. I've been sharpening asymetrically for awhile but not like anybody else. More like honesuki style but only going to a high angle on the front with my highest grit stone. I'm going to attempt to flatten the back of the suji. The a-types are slightly concave on the back correct? I'm still honing in on my perfect knife sharpening regiment. Anyway this baby is taking place of yanagi, gyuto, and petty. I'm too busy to sharpen 3 knives everyday and this menu doesn't merit having specialized knives. So I'm hoping I can get the retention I want out of it.

Nice set,what kind of cleaver?The Victorinox wavy edge bread knife is popular in Hawaii,It just sails through clubs & all kinds of fancy sandwiches.Has a gentle rocker & can be sharpened wt. a slipstone.I've used quite a few bread knives some pretty expensive,the lowly victorinox is still one of my favorites.

Whats the Harner that you have in the mobil bag?

-Chuck
It's a western Deba full convex grind to the whole blade not just the edge. Here is a pic of the work in progress you can see from the scratch marks the convex grind of the blade. http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa214/celtic2174/Chef%20Nilocs%20Knives/Technical/4560236baa0a308d80e6c4ff194e7864.jpg

King 1000 diamond stone. A lot like diamond Mary stone. It's my go to splash and go. 5+ years and diamond still cuting strong, better then DMT. Nice scratch pattern I say in between a to a Shapton pro 1000 and kink 1200.

For prep I keep my entire roll near me, during service I use a mystery line knife, a Ghessin Ginga 210mm petty, and various utensils.

Niloc. That holster setup and the mobile work bag are AWESOME!
