    What Do You Do For A Living?

    Wow... I'm an uneducated brute compared to you guys. Dropped out of high school and ended up cooking over the next 15 years - one of the places was a fine-dining restaurant. At the very least I got my qualifications for that. Making knives now.

    Passaround: Kippington Chevron Hook Grind

    Yep! That's exactly the kind of thing that made me come up with this grind, while I was still working in a pro kitchen... that and things like sliced tomatoes. People said to just use the tip of the knife because the edge is closer to the spine there. Instead, I brought the 'spine' down close to...

    Passaround: Kippington Chevron Hook Grind

    Awesome! Thanks for the review! Reflecting on what you said about the weight, I agree and find this particular knife too tip heavy, which is understandably affecting the way many of us are using it (it slows movement down a bit). I wasn't too worried about that when I started the passaround...

    Knife findings

    A pizza cutter strikes me as one of those things that I'd want to be stainless. The last thing you want to do after slicing a piping hot pizza is head over to the sink and try washing the cheese off the spinny thing. It's fun to sharpen them on a high speed belt grinder... :p

    Laser gyuto in pro kitchens

    Hammering and grinding are both loud enough to piss the neighbours off. Grinding is more consistent, like the background sound you get while sitting on a plane. Hammering is like the crying baby a few rows back.

    Laser gyuto in pro kitchens

    Yep. Okay, you seem to have a good idea of hardness and toughness. What we're getting into here is another thing: strength. Strength is about the behaviour of solid objects under stresses and strains. Lets say you have two pieces of 52100 steel rod (rod A and rod B). Both of them have been...

    Laser gyuto in pro kitchens

    Well it's all relative. I mean, there's a good reason why it all exists on a scale. Wear resistant lasers are pretty awesome, but also the ease of sharpening a 60-62 HRC laser cannot be ignored. As for toughness, it almost dictates the thinness behind the edge of a laser. Knowing what the knife...

    Laser gyuto in pro kitchens

    This thread is making realise there'd probably be a lot of love out there for thin grinds, but with thicker spines near the handle. If I had a power hammer, I could smash these out so cheap and fast...

    Good non stick fry pan

    I made a clip of frying some eggs to show the results I get on stainless. I didn't bother editing any of the video, so you can skip to 4:30 to see the end results - everything prior to that is only included just to prove I didn't pre-cook the eggs on a different pan or something. Near the end of...

    Not mine, thankfully. I've learned from other people's mistakes.

    Good non stick fry pan

    It turns out that Teflon (at a high temperature) breaks down into nasty gases that destroys the lungs of parrots - I'm talking death within a few minutes - and it's not so crash hot for humans either. Also, Google "Teflon Baby". I don't like to use the stuff. And besides, I can get really good...
