I stuff other things in that pocket here and there, but those things mentioned above never seem to leave.

    Service I bring a few things,
    240 Mario Gyutohiki
    Pierre sheepsfoot or butch harner stabber (opening sous vide bags)
    Thermapen (priceless can read my waterbath temp in 2 seconds)
    Fish tester
    Nogent Peltex Fish Spatula
    Small Offset Spatulas (smearing purees)
    Delbert Ealy Damascus (Kunz) spoon
    Gray Kunz large perforated spoon
    le creuset silicon spatula spoon with wooden handle for risotto
    meat fork (spinning fresh pasta)
    paint brushes
    ceramic rod
    waterproof marker for numbering sous vide bags
    no name 6-8" non locking tongs (haven't tried rosle, can't get them here and don't want to order expensive locking tongs I haven't tried) I always break the locks off tongs anyway.
    I think that's all I normally carry onto line on a regular day. I switch between the Mario, Mike Davis, Murray Carter and Stephan Fowler for my slicer needs, can't neglect these guys too much (I know this was supposed to be non knives, but they are too important)
    The thermapen is great as well, if you do alot of sous vide items and regulating water baths is important get this, I used to waste maybe 10-15 mins a day just waiting on my thermometer, no more! 70$ was way worth it.

    Where'd ya find a thermapen for $70? Or is yours a knock-off one?
    My $20 taylor digi takes readings pretty quick, but it broke the other day and it's the third one I've had in as many years. Was considering buying a thermapen from thermoworks, but they sell for $96 and that just seems like too much. I'd spring for one at $70 though... got a link?

    every year thermapen has a $69 sale.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Yeah, I was just poking around the internet and saw people talking about it in Jan-Feb and June-July before that. Why couldn't my Taylor have broken 2 months ago? Meh, might just have to buy one full price. Just watched a couple videos comparing thermapen to other brands, and damn they are quick as hell. Must have.

    How about this one from CDN?

    They claim it uses a thermocouple instead of a thermistor just like the thermapen. Anyone have any experience with both?

    For 30$ I'd just spring the extra to be sure.

    Ordered the Rosle tongs, 9 inch version. Microplane is on its way aswell. Anyone have any input on fish slices? What about large spoons (cant get Kunz in the UK it would seem)?
