    WTS Carter, Tsourkan, Broadwell, and more

    Y’all that Tsourkan is great. Good luck getting any Tsourkan at that price, let alone 300+mm of sharp steel.

    WTB Catcheside butcher/breaking knife.

    Glad to see you’re getting some use out of it. To the OP, I know he made 3 of the above style. I have the second, after selling the truck one Bear posted, but there is a third somewhere.

    Smoking Food (Meat)

    Changing a profile

    Putting a knife edge vertically down on a stone and essentially "sawing" the edge into it. Like cutting crusty bread with a bread knife.

    Been a while since we had a Cleaver chat.

    I flattened out the edge profile of a colleague's cleaver for him on a 120 SG. Took less than an hour or so. For sub-$150 cleavers, I would expect to have to do some adjustments to get something to my preference.

    SOLD Raquin 230 Butcher

    Thanks! I saw this, but the length is a little odd for me I think. GLWS, Bryan's steel is so, so easy to sharpen, someone will enjoy this.

    Flipper alert

    Ignoring everything else and veering mildly off topic, I actually don't think CM's general reputation here on the forum is much based in sexism. I mentioned her to my wife one time, just as an aside about something else, and her viewpoint was that it would be more sexist/demeaning if we...
