    Preparing for COVID-19

    🤣 We definitely sit next to each-other in the same media bubble. I read both the G and Conversation articles before you posted... ☺

    Preparing for COVID-19

    Hey @labor of love, I know this is a long time in the past now. I listened to a Joe Rogan* podcast with Dr Rhonda Patrick on the weekend: If you like podcasts and have the time, you may enjoy it. I hesitate to recommend it because I think she is speaking outside of her direct field of...

    Ultimate knife?

    As they say in my country "lucky last". Hopefully it will be extra special!

    Passaround: Kippington Chevron Hook Grind

    but the chevrons look like the gravitationally 'lensed' light rays from beneath the far side of the accretion disk 😕

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    @danemonji, @valgard, @Corradobrit1 Thanks for the observations! Appreciated 👍 I wonder what caused the evolution in design... feedback from users perhaps? It certainly would be very fascinating to hear Kato-san's reflections.

    Ultimate knife?

    This made me think you may enjoy Katanas: I'd love to see your talents extend in that direction. I bet you'd have a hellava fun time with the hamon and steel 'grain'. At the very top end of the kitchen knife market, you may as well start thinking about katana....

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    Thanks man! Maybe they take a good thing too far? 🤔 I like tall knives. I wouldn't mind the taller height (I think the workhorses include that). But the standards already have a wicked distal taper. I don't think I'd like to see the spine thicken or be fatter in the middle

    Ultimate knife?

    Looks shaped more like a sakimaru takobiki (curved, pointy tip). BUT... the blacksmith Yasha Yukawa is a swordsmith who makes some kitchen knifes. So the knife isn't really any typical Japanese knife profile (I don't think). More nihonto inspired.... Hey @nutmeg, do you polish Nihonto? There...

    Ultimate knife?

    Hehe... It is supposed to be a head exploding... Don't know about toque... it almost looks like I was reading @nutmeg's post in the shower whilst I was shampooing my hair. Something like: 🚿+😓+🌰+🔪 = 🤯

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    Glad to hear you are enjoying it! Thanks for posting your thoughts. Can you remember whether the older ones you used were Kato-Standards or Kato-JNS-Workhorses? I am curious how hefty the workhorse grinds are given that Kato standards are already heavy knives...

    Youtube AWESOME!

    Youre in good company ;) Hehe... I dunno? I suppose a bit of cultural context makes if funnier. So long as you are fine with swearing, I think there is cross cultural humour in there. I chewed them up! Made me look through some of his older videos. Funny guy.

    Kiyoshi Kato 240 Standard Gyuto Passaround

    I don't know why they are so popular? They have a ****** garden tool finish... The kanji looks like it was hammed in by a child.... they cut no better than a $10 bargain-bin special... Seriously... the emperor has new clothes. Avoid... :p Did that help? The coolest thing about this thread...

    Anyone tried building a commercial kitchen at home?

    Nice! Mazzer make great grinders. The mini was high on my list - I probably would have gotten it if I didn't let 'shiny' get the better of me. Both stunning! Wow! I think both of the above kitchens show how you can approach a commercial utility and aesthetic without modifying the walls and...

    Anyone tried building a commercial kitchen at home?

    I wish! If we are talking future dream space, I might get a full line up of copper for the looks. In reality i will probably just fill out what we have with one or two more Lodge... I purchased my coffee grinder with aesthetics as a big consideration. The coffee machine used to stick out like...

    Knife Tatoo

    Poor bugger only got 3 years before the label pressured them to flick him on! No? Worth a watch? Looks in theme with crappy cakes!

    It was always a joy to watch craftsmen or artisans... but this guy also had a lovely manner to him!

    Knife Tatoo

    You could probably fit a nice beaming picture of Sammy Hagar* there 😁 Holly ****! That is hilarious. I thought it was a picture of a puppet! That lion has human teeth! * man... I liked Van Halen but was never a super fan. I didn't realise they played musical chairs with their front man so...
