    Oh yes. Real ingredients. Used a whole bottle of good clear creek brandy from oregon in mine. It's sublime. Used an old Fannie farmer recipe it's the stuff. Don't tell the uninitiated. More for us.

    I second the advice to have Jon work on it. His shop is Japanese Knife imports. Better yet take a sharpening class with him. I think it's way too early to give up on the Takeda. Mine is a favorite...

    My first J knife was a Carter nakiri. I got pretty good with the squared "tip" doing things I probably wasn't supposed to like brunoised garlic and such. A few years later now and I'm thinking of...
