Thread: Most Essential Knives In Your Knife Roll

  1. #21
    I use two bags. One Ultimate Edge for my knives and one small duffle/linesman type bag for accessories. I carry a lot of knives and with spoons and stuff my Ultimate Edge was too heavy and cumbersome. It was also annoying to pack and unpack. So I added a second bag and it has been awesome. Plus I don't keep anything that expensive in it (and I work with great people that I trust) so I usually leave it at work and just take it home for my days off. It has lightened up my knife bag and made setup/breakdown much better. Here is the lineup:

    Ultimate Edge:
    2x 245mm gyuto (heavy)
    240mm gyuto
    270mm gyuto
    270mm suji
    150mm petty
    210mm petty
    150mm cleaver (heavy)
    90mm paring
    270mm bread

    I also carry some doubles based on what is new or strikes my fancy at the time. Right now I have two 210mm pettys, 2 270mm sujis, and 2 parings. Since I have an accessory bag the third page of my UE bag has pens, sharpies, notebook, bandaids, ibuprofen, oyster knife, moribashi, measuring spoons, fish spat and some other miscellaneous stuff. Most stuff in here other than the pens & sharpies doesn't get used that much.

    Accessory Bag:
    5 Kunz Spoons
    4 Other large Spoons
    3 Tasting Spoons
    Thermapen
    DMT 8k Diamond Plate
    Citrus Reamer
    Peelers
    Rosle Tongs
    Mac Rod
    Microplane
    More pens & sharpies
    Mini spats
    Corkscrew
    Shears
    Superbag
    And probably some stuff that escapes me at the moment.

    I have a yanagi, deba and usuba that I use on occasion. When I bring those to work, I usually throw them in this bag as they have nice secure sayas.

    Things I would add to a lineup would be a honesuki/hankotsu, slicing cleaver, 300mm suji or scimitar. I have most of these but they haven't made it in the rotation as of late, mostly to due to my daily needs, not because of the quality (or lack thereof) of these knives.

    Let's see, I posted my emptied out bag in my gallery, it's got a ton of unecessary stuff in it, so let's see.

    150 Hankotsu (Chicken/pork/sometimes beef)
    210 petty (most beef, line slicer)
    paring knife (in hand vegetables)
    240 gyuto (fine detail and all around)
    270 gyuto (lots or rough veg prep)
    240 mioroshi (lots and lots of salmon)
    220 filet (flatfish/belly bones)
    bread knife
    I am portioning fish with my mioroshi at the moment, my 270 suji is at home, and I am portioning meat with the 210 suji or 270 gyuto.
    As for accessories, let's see off my head.

    Y peeler, 2 types for root veg and carrots, thinner blade for asparagus and baby carrots
    Del kunz damascus spoon, and too many other serving spoons
    Nogent Fish Spatula
    Fish pinbone tweezers
    Meat fork
    fish tester
    thermapen
    sharpie
    can opener
    parisiennes
    oyster shucker
    pasta wheelcutter/gnocchi paddle
    ceramic rod
    chopsticks
    nailbrush
    hmmm I'm sure I will think of more.

    315 fuguhiki
    270 yanagi or suji
    195 deba
    240 mioroshi
    210/240 gyuto
    210 usuba
    180 usuba
    180 petty yanagi
    120/150 ajikiri
    also
    plating spoons x2
    165 moribashi
    sharpie
    a smallish notebook
    zester/microplane
    measuring spoons
    tape

    If "Its" and "Buts" was candy and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas
