    Someone asked about my Thai market knife seller photo and why there were no sharpening stones visable? Not sure in that case but every Asian knife seller I've found both here in the US and in China and Thailand always had pretty much the same Chinese made silicon carbide benchstone for sale with the cutlery.

    When I was in Bhutan, no stones to be seen until I did a few stages to learn some of the cusisine and everyone had a trusty river rock they sharpened on.

    I was told those stainless steel cleavers in the middle row were more popular with the younger generation in China because they felt it made them look less "old fashion.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I used to think of old cleavers with round wooden handles as crummy old pieces of crap - particularly the ones with dark, splotchy, why-didn't-they-get-stainless? baldes.

    I certainly don't think that way about them now

    I don't know, its hard to tell the younger generation in the cities from anyone on the street in the U.S. Pizza seems to be the national fast food but there was plenty of KFC and McDonald's every where I went. Again, for the kids.
