Is there any way to find out what retailer the OP was mentioning?
the OP was joking I suppose? either way mark is definitely carrying them
So don't put it on your knives. It won't hurt my feelings. Did you notice another post here today that mentions pro Japanese chefs clean their knives with scouring powder all the time? Takeda's finish doesn't patina worth a hoot and you need to clean them someway.
I simply wouldn't make mention of anything going on over at cktg for multiple reasons, the least of which is that i don't hang out over there so wouldn't know anything that's happening anyways.
The vendor mentioned is Knifewear.
And i clean my knives with BKF all the time.
