    What do you use to cut spaghetti squash

    I cut spaghetti squash last week and it was so hard, I got scarred of chipping one of my Japanese type knives. Not sure if it would, but the fear was strong in me. I ended up using my 25 year old 8" Henckels chef. The knife survived, but it wasn't a pleasant experience and the edge got mangled a...

    Shipping with FedEx

    So given that I've had some issues with USPS lately and them not honoring signature requirement, but still charging for it, I thought I had it all figured out. I started using FedEx ground. The cost seemed similar enough and it seemed that at least if you choose to pay for direct signature that...

    A few questions about Michael Rader 5 Steel

    For those of you who've had experience with Rader 5 steel. What do you think of it. How's the edge holding compared to something like 52100? Does deep etching cause any drag when cutting? Anything else that you guys can share?

    Adjusting gyuto heel to not hit the board

    Some knives with tall, flat profiles hit the board with the heel and a clunk. Has anyone adjusted the heel on such knives slightly to prevent this from happening Or is it too much work and more than the heel needs to be adjusted? The heel will have to be thinned after, but what else?

    https://www.knifecenter.com/item/SP306CBN/spyderco-cbn-cubic-boron-nitride-bench-stone-sharpener-3-x-8-inch So this looks cool to me because Spyderco usually makes good stuff and I've been wanting to try CBN stones for a while, but they were either not available or very expensive.

    Tried the unthinkable

    So I decided to try something I usually don't do. I went on vacation with friends and family for 9 days and took 2 nice, expensive knives with me. I let all use them to make dinners and other food stuff. I also didn't take any sharpenning supplies, none. These are the victims.... I am glad to...
