    Korean kitchen knives?

    i can't post the ebay link, but if you search for "korean kitchen knife made by master artisan who made daejanggeum knife" you'll find it. looks pretty good, though a bit round on the belly. anybody use a knife like this?

    interesting....roughly the profile of a deba...with some kind of KU type finish. Said it's made of railroad steel though?

    iron and carbon and stuff. sounds like a recycled steel from railroad ties, or something.

    that's what I was assuming as well. I've seen railroad ties used to build houses, so why not knives from the rails themselves?

    Interesting, but don't think I would shell out for one.

    i bought one of these, and it arrived today. crude doesn't even begin to describe it, but it is robust and takes a decent edge, so i think it'll work for what i bought it for: butchery that i don't want to risk my good knives on, but which i want a better edge for than i'd get with some piece of crap Furi, or something.

    yep. they're good for what they can do and for the price. from what i can see. they're all just a bunch of cheap and crude, possibly ripoffs of japanese knives.

    i was gonna contact the seller coz it was so darn cheap and wanted to ask them if the deba and the slicer also came in for lefties. sadly they're not. even said the santoku can't be used by a lefty.

    ah well.

    here i thought, i was gonna be able to get a bunch of cheap knives i can use and play with. lol. saw these a couple days before.

    this knife is more or less 50/50, i don't think it matters if you are a lefty or not, with it.
