Is that some kind of folding knife? Looks like a bolster behind the blade and a long grove/cutout on the bottom side it might fold into. I have a wood handled Spanish knife with no back spring or lock of about the same size I bought in Madrid a couple of years ago.

Salt was in general use long before history, as we know it, began to be recorded. Some 2,700 years B.C.—about 4,700 years ago—there was published in China the Peng-Tzao-Kan-Mu, probably the earliest known treatise on pharmacology. A major portion of this writing was devoted to a discussion of more than 40 kinds of salt, including descriptions of two methods of extracting salt and putting it in usable form that are amazingly similar to processes used today. Chinese folklore recounts the discovery of salt. Salt production has been important in China for two millennia or more. And the Chinese, like many other governments over time, realizing that everyone needed to consume salt, made salt taxes a major revenue source. Nomads spreading westward were known to carry salt. Egyptian art from as long ago as 1450 B.C. records salt-making.

Think they are going to make knives out of those rebar? I watched a how to do it video once of a guy making knives from rebar that stated some have enough carbon for cutlery and some don't. His advise was to try one and if it didn't harden, try another.

Ri-ri-yong was launched in 1979 by the father of current owner and master knifemaker Wang Chong-de. Wang studied blacksmithing under his father, who in turn had learned the craft from his father, before taking over the shop 15 years ago.

The Wang family has been at the center of the blacksmithing industry in Xinzhuang for a century, but Wang is the only descendant who still operates a business selling products made with his own hands.

The Historical section for the most part has been a place to for me to share things I find interesting and share with the forum.
But I really would like to know .

1* Is this the content you want to see on the Kitchen Knife Forum.

2* What direction or content you wish to see.

3*Is the photo of the day,which was started for the ease of the holiday season and i was thinking of ending in Feb
a good thing or something else in it's place .


I do get some very nice comments and I thank the forum member's for that
This is more asking for the direction and comments of where you would like the section to take good , bad or indifferent.

you can always send me a PM. TOO .

Spot on steeley! Im one of your biggest fans, some of the most interesting content here...

My favorites?

I specially like what you do when you link equipment, arquitecture, old kitchens or appliances to historic events... Like the photos that were posted of the Hindemburg.... Those were very interesting...

Or when an item that isn't used anymore and we have to guess what it is...

I like knifes that are really, really old... Maybe an interesting segment would be to find daggers, knives, katanas, etc. and post their history and how they were found... Kind of like what happened in the movie The Red Violin but the kitchen version of it? Its probably easier said than done. :idea2:

Some of these objects have had a very interesting passing on, they have belonged to historical figures or passed on among family members for generations, all of that is interesting to me.

Im interested as well in the Development of steel thruoght the ages, development of Japanese steel and its use in swords is a good topic, as is the development of Damascus and its reinstatement is a topic I would love to learn more about.

Are there documents that show their processes or are they only passed among artisans from generation to generation? How about the certification of knives in Japan? How does that work? Who does it? How did this evolve since the times of the Samurai?

I think all of these are interesting topics (unfortunately cameras are only involved in the most recent part of history).

Just ideas! :knife:

Whatever you decide to do.. Thank you for taking the time to put this together! :happymug:

A few years ago I was in the large cutlery shop located in the huge public market in Guadalajara Mexico. They had that last pattern in several different sizes. I had the impression it was some kind of regional butcher knife down there but I was told I didn't know what I was talking about on another cutlery website. By an "expert" that had never been to Guadalajara. :)

I meant that Guam knife rather than the first lamb splitters. The Mexican knives were are all stamped with a local brand and "Guadalajara" on the blade. Same maker also made knives of the general lamb splitter shape but a little lighter in in weight. One of those I brought home with me and drag out for barbecues once in a while.

Marc4pt0 yea i saw that bit about American cheese.

I think these is good time to find out what they meant by American cheese .
Cheddar cheese was being made and exported to England as early as 1790
and long before the anatto coloring was added to make it yellow so a white cheddar if you will.

now the cheese we know now as American cheese was invented in 1911 and sold to John Kraft in 1920
it can not be sold as cheese but Processed cheese .
and Velveeta was invented in 1918 .

this is a cheese company making the cheese one eat at a restaurant like that .

British colonists made cheddar soon upon their arrival in America. By 1790, American cheddars were being exported back to England. The British referred to American cheddar as "American cheese", or "Yankee cheese", and post-Revolution Americans promoted this usage to distinguish their product from European cheese.[5] For example, an 1878 newspaper article in The New York Times lists the total export of American cheese at 355 million pounds per year, with an expected growth to 1,420 million pounds

The Nutmeg has a long and wild history .
Nutmeg is native to the Banda islands of Indonesia. When the Portuguese rounded the Cape of Good Hope in Africa in the late 1400s, they took control of the spice trade because they could transport nutmeg far more cheaply in the hold of a ship than it could be transported by caravan. Soon the Dutch became the predominant traders of this precious spice. At the time, the only source of nutmeg was on Run Island. Because the British also wanted in on the lucrative trade there were many struggles between the British and the Dutch over control of the Island.

During the Napoleonic wars, the English finally gained control of Run Island and proceeded to plant nutmeg trees in Grenada and Zanzibar. This ensured that the British would not lose complete control of the Nutmeg trade should they ever decide to give up the island again.

1690 Nutmeg grater NewAmsterdam, I think that screw is a little newer.
http://i.imgur.com/EeentXRl.jpg

Nutmeg was very sought after but only the well off could afford it. a LB. of nutmeg was worth seven fat oxen in the 1400

1882
http://i.imgur.com/SXBja7sl.jpg

In the 1600s, "the Dutch and the British were kind of shadowing each other all over the globe," explains Cornell historian Eric Tagliacozzo. They were competing for territory and control of the spice trade. In 1667, after years of battling, they sat down to hash out a treaty.

"Both had something that the other wanted," explains Krondl. The British wanted to hold onto Manhattan, which they'd managed to gain control of a few years earlier. And the Dutch wanted the last nutmeg-producing island that the British controlled, as well as territory in South America that produced sugar.

"So they [the Dutch] traded Manhattan, which wasn't so important in those days, to get nutmeg and sugar."

And back then, the Dutch considered it a sweet deal.

http://i.imgur.com/NcoX8Yjl.jpg

And if you never seen the fruit with mace on the nutmeg

The fruit is edible it is often dried and taste of candied ginger.

In this painting, Renoir portrays a waitress who worked at one of several Parisian restaurants established by a butcher named Duval. These "Établissements de Bouillon" were described in an 1881 Baedeker guidebook as offering a limited and affordable menu to patrons "waited on by women, soberly garbed, and not unlike sisters of charity." Renoir imparted to his comely model an unaffected grace, and, as he once explained in a different context, "I like painting best when it looks eternal without boasting about it: an everyday eternity, revealed on the street corner: a servant-girl pausing a moment as she scours a saucepan, and becoming a Juno on Olympus.

This flaying knife (Tibetan: triguk; Sanskrit: kartrika) is styled in the Indian manner—with a long, hooked steel blade for both butchering and flaying. A vajra, symbol par excellence of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism, forms the handle. The lower "thunderbolt" emblem metamorphoses into a wide-jawed sea monster (makara), from which issues the blade, finely damascened with gold and silver and displaying an interlacing floral design. Workshops in the region of Derge, Kham Province, in eastern Tibet, excelled in such fine metalworking techniques, providing the probable source for this knife.

You can actually buy nutmeg with the mace shell whole. It won't have the fruit, but you will get the whole kernel. I know Dan Soloway of Soloway selections has it. He used to be purchasing manager at Per Se and now he runs a highly curated specialty spice shop. Here is one source (http://cookingdistrict.com/store/SEAC.nsf/products/64D5624B1E41884C85257A70006FF1EF?opendocument&name=Nutmeg%20in%20Their%20Shells%20-%20Grenada).

I just found this thread, and thought you guys might be interested in the work of a Dutch photographer called Bert Teunissen.

Bert has been taking pictures of old interiors - which are more often than not kitchens - that have not succumbed to modernisation and were often built before electricity was common. They vary in relevance to the thread, and the images on his site are annoyingly small, but there are some fantastic ones that I am guessing a lot of you will love. You can navigate through the many countries he has covered - including Japan, though I think some of the best ones are to be found in Spain, where I think this one is from.

Enjoy!

Between 1916 and 1924, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs, embarked on a series of camping trips. They called themselves the Vagabonds and camped in style. Numerous support staff set up and took down camp, cooked, took photographs, and maintained the cars and equipment trucks. This photograph shows chefs Fisher and Herman cooking for the group in 1921.

Believe it or not Ford had an option for an exhaust manifold oven so you drive and cook at the same time!

At its peak, Ford Motor Company's Willow Run Plant employed more than 42,000 people who produced one bomber every 63 minutes. The plant's five million square feet of roofed workspace incorporated everything needed to train and care for its workforce, including classrooms, a hospital, a commercial kitchen and a cafeteria.

A special thanks for Duckfat, Dave for pointing me toward the Ford museum.

IIR Willow run is where they made the B-24. We went to an air show there last summer. Got some great P-51 Mustang shots and a few bombers as well. That is a serious Bain Marie. Those pots look to be 20-40 quarts each. BTW if any one does come to Detroit to vist The Henry Ford drop me a PM. I often have extra passes. The old car festival in September is a lot of fun.

The big news in the kitchen during the 1920s? Reliable, affordable electric refrigeration. As more homes had access to electric power, people replaced their messy wooden ice boxes with stylish, low maintenance, enameled porcelain electric refrigerators. In 1930, 10% of households had them -- by 1940, 56% did. General Electric's distinctive "Monitor Top" refrigerator was a big seller in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

But due to the 24 hour rule. it is a Borek knife .
Börek is a general Turkish term for filled pastries.

The filling is often white sheep's milk cheese and a chopped vegetable such as parsley or spinach.

Often the dough is paper-thin yufka (phyllo) layered, rolled or folded around the ingredients, then baked, steamed or fried.
it is also can be used tor Lokum or Turkish Delight .

You go to your Borek shop and order a little this and that by the LB.
and he cuts it with this knife.

Actually, both of Chris' grandmas were hotties in their time. But there were no bikinis back then.
Chris's grandpa on his mother's side is still around, but I don't think he rode a moto.
Chris's other grandpa (my pop) did ride one once or twice, but there are no pics.
