    It's great to combine lentils, beans with grains and seeds. In fact, it's essential if you're on a totally veg diet. This gives you a complete amino acid chain for protein which is otherwise very...

    Has anyone compared which method retains the basil flavour best? From my experience dried basil loses much of it's "basil-ness". My very subjective evaluation is that hand chopped gives better...

    I bought one from Chinatown in Sydney about 16 years ago. Gave up using it as a cutting board because it was so "green" that the grain would move so to speak and make the surface go very uneven. I...

    Sure, all the above comments are true and it's what I'd do as well. However, just out of compulsive curiousity, is there any way to maintain the geometry of an 'S' grind if one was just using stones?

    I've wondered about this too. As MAS4T0 said, with repeated sharpening and thinning the blade height is reduced. And with an 'S' grind like say in a Takeda, surely this would complicate how one...

    Yes, the knife can be thinned and the 'bolster' ground down but I really think the Ealy parer is a case where style has got the better of function. And if I ground down the 'bolster' then it's not...
