i'd be happy to make a general post, especially since i bought a D600 a couple weeks ago, which makes this kind of photography much easier. maybe this weekend, if the wife doesn't have me doing large mothers day dinners.
This is very late, but if that Henckels knife is kicking around, I might want to trade for it.
lefty the henckels is currently with me which i will return to chris shortly. i haven't used it much as i really don't like the profile (too narrow), i just wanted to use it at home a few times as i think it's just so damn cool looking due to how old it is and the rehandle job is perfect for it. it is one TOUGH ASS steel. just resists abrasion like a mofo and takes a pretty decent edge. i nicked my knuckles on it while pulling it out of my knife roll which i immediately solved the issue by making a cardboard and duct tape saya :D
mr dinky, is a honesuki good for cleaning double lobe chicken breasts? (i just use a gyuto) never tried one, let alone 51200 steel. i'd be interested in taking it for a spin if available.
Id love to try out the DT ITK if that would be possible!
didn't get to the knife this weekend (ended up signing up for a summer macro-econ class, and the first assignment was 250 questions, and took hours), but i definitely will this week (along with thinning that pass-around Moritaka and doing the Heiji spa day tutorial).
