    Thank you, Mari! My first J-knife haul

    Had a wonderful experience this morning at Korin purchasing my first "real" knives. I'm just a regular home cook, so I didn't go too crazy:

    Knives that I was considering


    Getting my new knives sharpened! I plan on leaving the sharpening process to the professionals... for now, at least {please let me know if I should delete this picture, Mari!}


    Pretty boxes


    My purchases: Misono Molybdenum Peeling Knife, Korin Special Inox Orange Handle Gyutou (210mm), Togiharu Nickel Damascus Nakiri


    I diced some potatoes as soon as I got home with the Nakiri - I love it! It felt a little heavier in store than what I'm used to (just some inexpensive KAI Pure Komachi and Kyocera knives), but it only took me half a potato for it to feel very natural. I'm super happy with this purchase! I cook mostly veggies at home, so I think I will get a lot of use out of this knife.

    Here's a macro of ~1cm potato dice. I'm so amazed at how sharp the edges of the potato are!


    Looking forward to using my knives more

    I love the look of the Suisin. The nakiri is a beast

    At first glance, I thought you were saying the 9 knives in the pic were the ones you bought...after saying "I didn't go too crazy". Now that would have been the start of a very serious addiction .

    3 is still a respectable haul, though! Welcome to KKF.

    Thank you I will probably need some help determining when I should bring them in to be sharpened!

    being a knife nut is an interesting addiction. But I love it.
