Good to see you cooking Jon.
Q. Is that the first (looks like) or the second side cutting? If it is the first, do you find cutting it this way works better? And Masa blue steel aideba, right?
no easier... just in a rush and reversed things initially, but realized what i was doing and corrected. And yes, the knife is my old masamoto... the first deba i bought for myself (and my second deba over all... the first was a gift from my chef in Japan).
At Union Commerce on Saturday my eyes fell upon a beautiful KS 210 ai-deba. I never knew I wanted one. I saw an A-type ai-deba at Aritsugu in Tsukiji along with another one at Sugimoto, but they somehow had little effect on me. The Masamoto, however, looked like it could do so much more for my knife skills. Go figure.
LOL!! I never saw this thread!!
