I've always loved knives (and pretty much every other bladed object) since I was little. This was probably enhanced by the fact that my mom was very anti-knife. So not only were they inherently...
Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? Love the way the Damascus and the handle compliment each other! Is it snakewood?
It seems like the chef/cleaver area is well covered so far, but if you're still considering a paring knife I would recommend one of Del's parers in aeb-l. Awesome little knife!
First off, I'd like to apologize to Crothcipt for taking so long to respond and second to the forum for the thread necromancy I'm committing right now. Hopefully it will at least be semi-interesting...
I like my old-style Ealy the best. The snubby nose seemed at bit odd at first glance but in practice the knife is just great!
I have tried both and own a 180, which I like better overall. That said, if you have very limited space, the 165 does have it's advantages.
Skin irritation was the reason I started looking for an alternative to the cartridges. I like straights best but also have a Vie Long I got from Lefty which is quite nice. Encouraged by my...
Gimlets with Pinckney Bend gin.
I haven't found a d handle that I really like yet. The best was on my zensho nakiri but even thy one got replaced with an octagon whithin a month. I just don't like the way the d protrudes into my...
Looks like good times were had by quite a few people in this thread! I just went fly fishing for the first time a few weeks ago. Didn't catch anything but it was really fun and I can definitely see...
My favorite thing about this knife is that I was reading the description of it on SLT's website to my wife and...
Knife is on its way to Todd and should arrive Thursday. I'll post my thoughts on it asap, but for now it was definitely a fun experience--thanks Crothcipt!
Knife arrived this afternoon and will be accompanying me to make stirfry in a few minutes!
Cool - looking forward to it!
Holy smokes--that was awesome!
lol we almost have an emoticon for it! Who can modify this little guy's sign to say passaround? :threadjacked:
Anyhow, who am I messaging my address to now? :)
Dang... I do not need that filarmonica... but I really would like it!
For the santoku I would check out maksim's zensho line at jns.
I have very little experience with santokus but the Zensho at JNS was the first thing that came to mind for me. I have a Zensho nakiri and love it. If I remember right, that maker exclusively makes...
Profile definitely seems to have more belly than the fusion/morimoto line. More similar to their artisan/kaizen line maybe?
If you really like the aesthetics of the Shun premiers, you may want to have a look at the Miyabi artisan line. The aesthetics are almost exactly the same, but the miyabis are sg2 steel instead of...
This will be fun! In addition to testing the uraku I'll get to test my new camera too, so hopefully no lousy cellphone pics for my leg of the passaround. :thumbsup:
Also, PM with address sent!
My biggest problem with the S&S is that I've always, invariably had crappy servers on top of having to wait a freakin' eternity for even the simplest order to come out. And that's been the same...
Looking forward to this! :D
