Thread: Root Vegetables - What knife

  1. #21
    I absolutly love my Yoshikane 240 gyuto on the root vegies and Fall/Winter cooking.

    This knife tends to get set aside in the Summer for the lighter offerings from the field; in lieu of thinner, lighter, and shorter blades.
    But it is truly one of my stars for this time of year when mixing up ingredients for stews, soups, roasts, etc.

    I smile every time I pick it up and take it out of it's hot weather hibernation...

    I'm a nakiri guy too. They're great for this particular application.

    Lately I'd probably go for my new Shiggy Gyuto, obviously because it's my new Shiggy gyuto.

    Okay. I'm curious as to what this technique is. Spill, unka.
