    What kind of knife for supreme (supreming??) oranges/grapefruit?

    What would you use to supreme citrus?

    Going to do it tonight with a paring knife, probably, but would love an excuse to buy a nice j-knife

    I do it with 240mm gyuto and manage to not waste too much food in the process.

    I've used a simple Fujiwara FKH carbon sujihiki for it. It contributed highly to its patina, and getting the carbon steel a bit less reactive,

    I don't do it often but knife of choice is 150 stainless petty when I do.

    Theory has a vid on here somewhere where he slays several. I don't remember the knife used but it looks like he's done it before...

    Parer, petty, or sujihiki. Depending on the size of the fruit. I like a slightly longer knife than the fruit. Make a cut towards the core of the fruit along the segment line. Then pull up the other side of the Supreme towards me. Perfect looking supreme every time.
