Why don't they make X knife?
I was thinking that my ideal knife could be a 210 wa-handled, double-bevel kiritsuke, in solid white 2 steel. You could think of it as either a long nakiri with a pointy tip, or a gyuto with almost no belly. Could be a sweet knife...
So, has anyone else ever wanted a knife that can't be found? Maybe you could get a custom, but it's impossible to buy off the shelf.
You guys don't like durian? What's up with that?
Man, seriously Durian is like nature's perfect custard :jumpy:. Why don't you love it?
It forms into the consistency of rich creamy custard inside the fruit. And it smells so strongly it gets out of the double ziplock bags I use and permeates my whole fridge.
But I absolutely love it. Just bought 2 fruits, 1kg each, cost me $45 for the pair. Crazy expensive, but the taste can't be replicated.
I'm thinking an oyster shucking knife might be really great with that finger guard and the strong stubby blade to deal with the spines. Any feedback?
