    A New Respect for Martha Stewart

    I was getting my hair cut today and saw in a Martha Stewart Living magazine (sept issue) that she uses Fujiwara Aritsugu knives. The article says that she has collected them over many years traveling to Japan. Here is a picture from the article.

    She's a very intelligent woman, so why not? ;-)

    They could have been polished for the article? Appearance is everything, and while a dirty, patina'd knife is appealing to you and I, it may not be to the average consumer.

    "She uses rusty knives?!"

    I think you're reading into a mere picture a little much.

    I'm not a patina person.....I polish all my carbon knives at end of day when I used them, just like most Japanese chef do

    C'mon, do you really see her as someone who appreciates patina on her knives? I have not seen her shows often, but always thought of them as almost clinically clean and aseptic, why would she let her knives get 'dirty'?

    With what are you disagreeing. You mean you DO think they look spotless in the pic supplied. I was just saying how they look to me, and no, I can't see her being a patina appreciator. lol

    Oops, sorry, that was more a general comment and not aimed directly at you.

    No biggie. I was just curious if you thought the knives didn't look fairly well used. Whether she can use a Soba knife is neither here nor there to me. Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me. She does so many things well.
