The wifey and I had a late dinner at Next in Chicago and saw the Executive Chef sharpening his Nenox Suji on quite possibly the most dished stone I have ever seen. Just because you can cook has absolutely nothing to do with your knife sharpening skills.

Well, as I suck at both cookng and sharpening it is good to know that I apparently have some degree of balance in my life that is lacking in the lives of others. :lol2:

I was watching this tonight thinking "everyone on this forum would love to take part in this challenge!".

But then I thought we'd all be too OCD about it and would be finding cardboard or phone books to strop on while all the ****** wire edges or big burrs push cut that paper and we all lost.

What stones did they use?

The stones said Kramer on the side. I think they were double sided, black and white.

i think it's those glass stone knock offs that has bob kramer's name on them.

After the sharpening debacle the final skills task was breaking down a rabbit. One guy asks "how the f do you break down a rabbit?" Other guy says "just like a cat" ROFLMAO. Don't kniow that that will make the reruns...

That's so weird, watched the first episode tonight on the pvr and all they did was select those moving on to Seattle, 4 different challenges from 4 judges and those selected move on, but that was the end of the episode, nothing more. I was expecting this Kramer challenge but nothing.

Are we an episode behind or something here in Canada? Don't think I missed anything. Weird.

Its 9 episodes behind. Well, 8, depending on how you count. The last episode was number 9.

Holy crap that's crazy, how is it that we are so far behind? Despite it being on my pvr it was a "new" episode that was only recorded from the day before. Damn lol

Honestly I kind of thought that since this season is in Seattle that it would only make since to have Bob Kramer on as guest judge. But then I thought better of it because naturally it would have to some sort of knife/sharpening challenge which to me just sounded senseless. I thought for Sure that any chef who makes the cut onto the show MUST know how to sharpen a knife!? Man, I was Way wrong.
But IMHO, one of the best quick fire prizes Ever. Lucky bastard.

Many chefs aren't very good at sharpening....its not really as common as you'd think.

Most chefs let the knife rental guy throw their knives on his grinder its petty sad

OK so I finally watched it then promptly went to my garage and grabbed some rope. I used my Shun that won't totally shave and got bout 3/4 way through it. It was only 3/4 inch rope so I guess I'm about 1/4 way to learning how to properly sharpen my knives :D

That's what cooks do with house knives. Chef's that use their own knives don't send them to the rental/grinder guy or at least I've never seen that.

She has to be one of the most talented Chef's on the show since the Voltaggio bros. Amazing talent for how young she is. I expect we will hear a lot more from her in the future.

i sure hope so. i keep wondering why she's been in the middle of the pack (being safe) in the past few episodes.

She's won two of the elimination challenges in the last 3 episodes.

They only just started airing it in Canada. Might have something to do with the fact that its on Food Network Canada. In the US, its aired on BRAVO.
