Thread: First Pass-around

    I don't know if this makes sense to people who've worked a lot of different kitchens but here we go ...

    In my small sushi place I'm bouncing back and forth working line, restocking, prepping while i have time, cooking rice cleaning one more fish... basically stop and go traffic. At the hotel/convention center it was very different -- Do 8 pans of veg prep, cut 16 cases of fruit for buffet, clean chicken for 4 hours. When I'm at sushi and need to chop some scallions between orders, I'd keep my Carter. Its better burst damage. If I'm breaking down 3 pallets of product, I'd love to have the Mizuno. You don't move quite as fast with it, but its designed to keep you going steady all day without fatigue.

    Maybe just person preference. Thanks again for the opportunity to test drive!

    Nice review, thanks! I think I read in another thread that a Mizuno honyaki is on your shopping list now...says a lot about a knife you only used for a week or so especially considering your current lineup.

    Status?

    This is taking a bit longer than expected. But I'm the last guy that should complain. I just hate shipping stuff.

    got the knife in my hands.
    Right TOB the knife is solid and feels nice in hand, compared to 240mm Kato, the Mizuno is a skinnier knife:



    The knife has been sharpened a lot it looks but still looks pretty thin behind the edge, I'll see how it cuts later tonight

    If you get a chance, can you do a side by side choil, and tip thinness comparison pic?
