    Everything has turned to warm butter

    Last week I bought a new Konosuke 240mm White #2 Gyuto and 120mm Petty From JKI.

    Holeeee Crapoleeee!
    I had no idea what good knives could do.

    I've nicked myself a couple times now pushing too hard.
    I was not expecting a thick raw carrot to virtually melt into pudding from the touch of the this sharp magical Japanese steel.

    There is an odd smooth sensuous suction sensation cutting with these knives.
    It's almost like they have some invisible force pulling them through food.
    The tactile difference is astonishing.

    What a joy!!!

    When you get down to it, knife culture and evangelical religion aren't all that different.

    Oh one thing though......just wait until you sharpen them.

    I cannot image they could possibly be any sharper.
    I have to be careful how I dry them.
    They EAT towels.

    If Jon sharpened them first then they're extremely sharp but if you got the factory edge then yeah you're in for a whole other experience.

    That edge is only "respectable"?

    When the knife seemed to just fall through the big raw carrot I thought someone was playing a practical joke on me, since they've been teasing me about my snobby new knives they are not allowed to touch.
    I thought they had put a few cooked carrots back into the bag with the raw ones.

    Honestly, I bit into the carrot to see if it had been cooked.
    Nope . . . Raw.
