    TK Sharp, part 2

    Salty posted a video before about a knife TK59 sharpened for him.

    TK sent me a Devin Thomas PM San Mai gyuto to try out. After an hour or so of cutting stuff at work, I diced some apples. I did not put them in water or put any lemon juice on them. At the end of my shift, they were still white and pristine. I put them in a quart container and saved them for the next day. Here they are more than 24 hours later:



    They actually look more oxidized than they were. These are in a ninth pan with my crummy Blackberry camera, so the colors aren't super accurate.

    TK says it's my technique, I say it's his edge, perhaps it is both.

    Were they Honeycrisp apples? I find they can go days without turning colors whereas a Granny Smith is almost instant browning.

    That's pretty impressive. Any guess as to what techniques might help to prevent apples from browning?

    Gala if I remember correctly. I cut them basically every day before service, even with other sharp knives they get browner than the above picture in less than 30 minutes.

    Just smooth clean slices I would imagine. The less tearing you do to the cells/fibers of the apple, the less oxidation you seem to get. Bite a chunk out of one half of an apple, cut a slice off the other side and see how much faster the bit side browns.
