    best knife profile for pull cutting

    I find that the geometry near the tip is important when doing a lot of pull cutting. I tend to pull cut more often when using a Mizuno gyuto which has very little distal taper. With a lot of distal taper you often end up with a very thin tip with effectively a flat grind; great for detail work...

    What is the one knife you would never sell or trade?

    Mack, What's the reason for the extra layers? Aesthetics? BTW, 5-layers of lamination would be go-mai (go=5) as opposed to san-mai (san=3).

    Demeyere Teppanyaki/Plancha Griddle

    Thanks, that sounds great. Any complaints after a couple years of use?

    UK/London blade shows that have good kitchen knife representation

    You'd have better luck visiting KKF members in and around London.

    Demeyere Teppanyaki/Plancha Griddle

    I realise I'm reviving an old thread, but would anyone who picked one of these up like to share their experiences? I just noticed that these are still available here in the UK (albeit at more or less full price).

    Skillet or Saute to pair with Lyonnaise Skillets?

    That's really helpful thank you and thank you, Rick, for the photos. I've never used a saute pan, and don't even recall seeing them in stores until quite recently (this is in Northern England). I didn't really understand the unique benefits of a saute pan and I think you've clarified it...

    Skillet or Saute to pair with Lyonnaise Skillets?

    Can anyone advise on how much difference the side wall height makes to sautéing? I have sauteed large quantities before in the Dutch Oven, which has the same base construction (as the sauté), but double height sidewalls. I realise that sidewall height affects evaporation, but the saute seems...

    Skillet or Saute to pair with Lyonnaise Skillets?

    Thank you all for the advice. Yeah, the Pawson pans are the same construction as Atlantis, just different handles and skillet shape. I have a 28cm Pawson Dutch Oven with the same construction as the saute, but with short handles and double height side walls. I can see that bulk being...

    Skillet or Saute to pair with Lyonnaise Skillets?

    Thank you for the guidance David. I have quite a few skillets, all Lyonnaise shape. Would you pair these with a saute? If I'm understanding you correctly then with a set of skillets already, you'd be inclined to add a saute? Mostly looking for a larger base, but I've never cooked in a...

    Skillet or Saute to pair with Lyonnaise Skillets?

    I'd appreciate some thoughts on this. I always tend towards Lyonnaise skillets, my current stable is Turk and Demeyere's Pawson. They're great, but you lose a lot of internal space - the 28cm Demeyere has a base diameter of just 22cm (and this is the largest in the range). I'm looking for...

    Looking for a Paring knife!

    The advice to try a few and see what you like is because with a parer a lot of it is personal preference. If you don't know what you are going to use it for and what you like, it's better to try cheap options of few different styles and then upgrade to something nicer if you're so inclined. I...

    Buy and sell etiquette.

    I was more trying to illustrate that there can be other factors involved in the value. For me it comes down to the motivations of the seller, which are ultimately unknowable. If he's trying to take advantage of an unsuspecting customer, that is bad, but we can't know if that's the intention...

    @mille162 Thank you so much for the advice! It's very generous of you to take the time to go into so much detail. I'm going to save this so that I can reference it in future.

    DSLR Camera Recommendations

    Ah, I wasn't sure if they tended to be more consumer focussed. Thanks for the clarification. Any recommendations for which segment to look at if wanting the best pictures without needing to manually adjust settings? Is it stupid to use a pro-level D-SLR on full-auto?

    Buy and sell etiquette.

    I've done this both ways, sold some and bought things on here for above US retail price. Even if I pay 20%+ to a seller in Europe, I'm still saving $20 on the US retail. You see, there's not just VAT to consider, we also pay a fee for the privilege of being charged it! The other thing is...

    DSLR Camera Recommendations

    Thanks for the advice. I went straight to a D-SLR, having only used point and shoots previously. I felt well over my head, and never even got the hang of selecting the right ISO. I figured that it was going to be a much bigger time commitment than I'd realised, so shelved the whole thing...
