Thread: Japanese knives used to sculpt ice?

  1. #1

    Japanese knives used to sculpt ice?

    I had a customer the other day that purchased stain resistant traditional Japanese knives and when I asked what she does, she told me that she is a bartender... She apparently carves ice with the knives. Naturally my first thought was "HERESY!" Especially after all of these years of being told "Mari don't use knives to cut frozen things!"

    I looked it up and told this:

    Now my main question is... What happens if the knife chips, get stuck to the ice and no one notices... Someone dies? Also is this new? Is this allowed?

    I saw this awhile ago, I can't remember if it was on this forum or somewhere else. Even though this gentleman looks like he knows what he is doing, it still makes me cringe a bit.

    I don't think the customers would like the smell of gas in their drinks or the taste of chainsaw lubricant.
