    Whetstone for thinning. Recommendations.

    +1 sigma 240 sealed, Shapton Pro 120, Baryonyx Mutt. I like to use one of the grooved SiC stone fixers to dress the surfaces of coarse stones

    Best knife for segmenting fruit?

    Something around 165-180. I’ve done a case of these with carbon and yes, I have to touch up the edge after, but it doesn’t dull it enough to stop working in the middle of the project. That said stainless is optimal, something like a Ginga 180 petty? And Sukenari would also be a good pick. For...

    That d*mn courier thread.

    Lots of bad experiences with ups and FedEx, some predictable and understandable based on the news at the time and some not. Never had a bad experience with dhl. They’re my favorite but I haven’t known anyone to use them shipping domestically within the us.

    What's your favorite 240mm Gyuto under $300

    Looks very Heiji-like; is that accurate in practice?

    S390 67HRC some sharpening advice

    Diamonds will definitely grind anything and there seem to be some better and more accessible options than last time I was looking; the other thing that comes to mind is Sigma Power Select II because weren’t these designed for hard, wear resistant, high carbide PM steels?

    Home Use Suji - Preferred Length?

    270 especially because some 240s are under nominal edge length and that’s just too short for a slicer. You could look into a 240 that runs big or a Sakai 270 for something with an actual edge measurement of 250-260

    What's your favorite slicer for a Standing Rib Roast?

    Mazaki, although I’ve not used a Tanaka suji but would imagine it to be exceptional as well.

    Wolf Gourmet

    Wolf ranges are worth every penny, even the $10k ones. The other stuff with their name on it though probably isn’t, and I can’t imagine the knives being substantially different from or superior to Wusthof, Messermeister, etc.

    Laser gyuto for professional kitchen recommendation

    Shibata Kashima for the win, and a friend of mine has the AS which is also damn good. Goko Kogetsu also, if anything it’s even more of an ultimate laser than Shibata but it is mono white 1 if reactive steel would be an issue in your kitchen.

    Been a while since we had a Cleaver chat.

    I think that’s the one yes, 366g

    Looking for a sturdy beater

    A Tosa forged butcher knife or heavy gyuto in blue steel. I have a couple for cutting chickens through the breastbone and spine and all the other things you shouldn’t do with a nice gyuto.

    Opposite of Laser

    What is it?

    Has anyone downgraded their overall collection?

    Not in so many words; but I don’t have as many expensive gyuto at one time as I used to. I had to try them all to learn about knives and learn what I like but as a tool kit, a lot of them are equally good and hence in my mind became redundant. Then I did the same thing with sujihiki. I have as...

    Mikawa Nagura recommendation

    I’ve seen a few around and would like one someday, no more expensive than the range for suita and other finishers, seem to be a lot fewer out there though.

    "Supplemental" Appliances. How Much Do You Really Use Them?

    Pressure cooker I use a lot especially for stock. Immersion blender sometimes, robot coupe somewhat more frequently because I do blender stuff in there too. Kitchen aid when needed but when it’s needed nothing else will do so it’s good to have around. Microwave almost never, if I need boiling...

    Mandolin rec?

    Oh lots of pros use them, I'm just not any good with one, not very fast, afraid I'm more likely to hurt myself with it

    Mandolin rec?

    good pick, everyone I know uses that one too. The blades sharpen just like a single bevel knife with a low shinogi and no handle, if you can sharpen a knife you can sharpen these. Personally I don’t like to use a mando and I can do most things better with a knife than I can with a mando, but...
