I used the Zensho Santoku 180mm from Maxim tonight for the first time and could not help but wonder where J-knives have been all my life. It made light work of all the veges I could throw at it. Needless to say I am hooked. Maxim puts a spectacular edge on his knives, I only hope I can maintain them at the same level of sharpness. Time will tell I guess.
I haven't used the Nakiri yet, and am still awaiting my Yoshikane Gyuto from Takeshi but that didn't stop me from jumping on one of Carters latest 8.2 sun Gyutos tonight. KAD in full effect!
I need to find a suitable on-bench storage solution for my latest additions to the kitchen. Anyone using a magnetic block?
