    Oyster knives...

    Thanks Bernard tis but a fleeting visit. That site is out of stock - we leave Friday so will just have to find one out there. I am sure that we will be so blissed out on California that paying $7 over the odds for a cheap knife will cause minimal stress. How goes the fun in here? ;)...

    Oyster knives...

    Thanks Dave That's the kind of thing - we aren't staying in a hotel have rented a cottage for a week. Good idea though I will ask them for the street address and get it sent there. Why do I want to shuck my own. I guess two reasons. Firstly I like shucking oysters, but more to the point...

    Oyster knives...

    Hello all I have not been here in a while... We are off to California on Friday and will be staying near Tomales Bay, so I need an osyter knife. I understand if you buy one at the oyster place they charge you an arm and a leg for it, and I just called a shop here in London to get one...

    Christmas present ID ?

    So whether it is made by Misono or not, the marking "Sweden Steel" means it is the same steel as used in the Misono series?

    Christmas present ID ?

    It's true - the brass spots on the handle are also very similar to my dragon.

    Christmas present ID ?

    The "#6" I had understood! Though had thought it might refer to the knife type... I wonder if that all means it is same kind of steel as my Misono dragon suji? Thanks tripleq, looking forward to anything else you can come up with. R

    Christmas present ID ?

    Happy Christmas everyone... Attached please find photographs of a very nice 150mm petty knife that I received yesterday. All I know about this knife is that it was bought from NIYA in Tokyo, and that it is carbon steel. I have a box as well but haven't posted a picture of it. The box has...

    KIYA Nihonbashi

    Hello knife people I haven't been on here for a while, but my girlfriend just got back from a weekend in Japan, and gave me a small present from a shop called KIYA [according to the wrapping], which turned out to be a very small and cheap fish descaler. Now I am pretty certain that she has...

    Gyuto under $200 for Newbie

    The OOTB edge on my CN was way sharper than anything I had used before. I think you are going to probably like any knife that has been recommended here.

    Gyuto under $200 for Newbie

    I actually love the reactivity on the Misono. It is currently all kinds of blues and purples from slicing a roast recently. I think it is probably more a gyuto over suji preference to be honest [use and also I find gyutos easier to charpen for some reason], although I do think the...

    Gyuto under $200 for Newbie

    I was in a very similar position to you and I bought a CarboNext after advice here and I love it. I have since bought a Misono Swedish Sujihiki, which was a lot dearer, and think I actually prefer the CarboNext. Combi stone is fine I think. I would suggest 1000/6000 or something similar...

    Sounds good to me, I will send them a link! Thanks all.

    symmetrical gyuto

    Budget I guess in the CarboNext range with a bit of leeway. I don't mind him having a CarboNext if he says he isn't worried by wrong handed assymmetry, but I would be happier to recommend a knife they could both use properly.
