Your a hard man to get a hold of :)
My Takamura R2 is pretty lazerish but the biggest size is only 210mm
Oh in that case of cck your absolutely right. The reg cck slicer is around $30 usd in HK, Once it reaches North America the prices jump. I like your business case to hoard cleavers. :)
Glad to share Sixcats. I use imgur for all my pictures uploads. Do you ever use your vintage cutlery and flatware to eat with ? I was considering sharping the Lamson and using it as a fruit knife...
I'm not sure if Chinese cleavers are the way to go. From what I can see the mid-highend cleaver market is a nich market and restricted to the west. To the Chinese a $50 CCK is expensive, there isn't...
I use a medium clever as a main knife with a slicing cleaver as a side. I find that the food I cook (home cook) such as stir fry's, stews, curries require cutting hard veg in to small pieces. And as...
Thanks Larry and Dennis, I have been drinking it out of a coffee cup, neat haha. Will try a wine glass next time.
What feels right to me is to cook with it! I put it in my chilli right before...
I'm a cleaver user, but have few other knives to round everything out. Are you planning on getting a light thin slicing cleaver or a medium cleaver ? That might affect what you want to compliment the...
Lee valley sells something very close to what you describe. http://www.leevalley.com/en/garden/page.aspx?cat=2,40733,40738,52770&p=52770
Hi Larry, thanks for offering.
On a recent trip to the US I picked up a bottle of Wild turkey rare breed bourbon at the duty free. I'm not a big drinker so I have no clue on how to drink it. So my...
Some oldies from ebay
From the top
??? old rusty carbon slicer no markings, Anyone have a idea what it might be?
Thanks for the responses guys, keep them coming. Never thought of using a larger diameter wheel to lower the speed.
the wok shop sells a chopping like the one in the pic.
The more time they spending cleaning, the less time they spend cooking !
Out of all the tools I use to play with knives I'm finding that my little 6" Harbor freight buffer is the most dangerous of them all. This little buffer has the tendency to grab blades and fling...
I'm huge fan of Alton, but this is a pretty complex way to eat a mango... I use the grid pattern myself :knife:
I hear ya, My unicorn is a knife that I design, forge, grind and finish by myself. Oh what a long and dangerous path that is !
Glad your enjoying it Tom.
One more badass cleaver to consider is a Saji, http://www.japanesechefsknife.com/SPECIALS.html#Saji%20Chinese%20Cleaver. Its too rich for my blood, but boy is it bad...
Haha I'm sure that blade is couple times the gentleman's budget :laugh:
I second the chinatown special or a CCK if you can find one
I choke up on the blade on my cleavers so I never had any issues due to wet or oily handles, due to the height of the blade its rare for oil or water to migrate up there. If it gets too wet I just...
I would recommend the Tojiro F-631, they have the most comfortable handle on a clever second only to the Sugimoto. Its all stainless so its more durable then wood handled cleavers and the fit and...
I thought diamond plates don't work well with soft steel as the steel has a tenancy of grabbing the diamonds and dislodging them from the plate.
I use my chosera 400 grit for cheap soft stainless....
So who's gonna be the first to try this...
In for one, Handle doesn't matter
For your consideration, some vintage steel picked up in NYC.
First is a couple small carving knives
