    My Mizuno is hands down the most reactive knife I own. It's the sides, not the blade steel. I've had similar experiences with mine. Cut a couple onions and you'll have red/brown spots all over it. It demands a lot of attention but it does cut and keep on cutting for a long time.

    I got a Tojiro Shirogami Gyuto for a prep cook. I showed him how to sharpen and made a green brick available to him. His knife skills were so poor that the knife would be DULL by the end of the day. Then he would say he didn't have time to sharpen it. The knife got so dull he stopped bringing it to work. So of course I made fun of him and his lack of sticktoitiveness. He quit, moved to Miami and was an extra in a porno within a week.

    True story.

    So the white steel experience will depend on the person. I've had better luck starting them on forgecraft and CCK.

    Sounds like your cook just moved from one form of tip work to another? I heard its great work if you can get it.

    Except he was an extra, so what's that mean? He spent most of his time trying to stay out of the line of fire/ dodge stray rounds? Hope he kept the apron...

    In that industry paying your dues is a real pain in the a$$.

    From what I understand.

    Never would have happened if I had just gotten him a CCK 1303.

    lol, esp if you don't do a good job with your "prep work."
    More similarities between the 2 service industries?
    OK, I'll stop now before the thread gets locked...


    That guy you gave the cck to damn near cut his hand off though didn't he?
    So I'm not sure he was that much better off.

    Moral of the story: if a clown is trying to give you a knife, RUN.
