    Picked up a CCK bone cleaver the other day to whack some chicken. My previous dexter bone cleaver was nabbed by my mother so I’ve been needing to pick up a new knife. I believe this is the CCK 九江刀Kau Kong Chopper model KF1401. It did quite a decent job breaking my chicken drumstick bones...

    Awesome knife at an awesome price. Would pick this up if I didn't just order a 240mm Mazaki. Buyer should be very pleased with this pick up. GLWS!

    I just want to say that refreshing this PA thread has been the highlight of my week, and given me more FOMO than staying home for coronavirus. Thanks for organizing @tgfencer

    Raquin knives

    Thanks for sharing. It means a lot more when someone from within the trade praises a piece of work as GOOD. Do you mind sharing a little about the grind? What exactly is special about the way Raquin does the forge shaping. FWIW, this thread has been entertaining. I am a knife noob compared to...

    Greetings from California!

    Have been a lurker for years and finally decided to create an account. My knife roll consists of a mixture of vintage sabatier and Japanese knives. Look forward to sharing photos very soon!

    My favorite color is BLUE!.............A patina thread.

    wow that’s incredible. Thanks for sharing. It really makes you think about how to make your knife YOUR knife. How to personalize it. May I ask how you got the rose and diamond engraved? Did Watanabe do a custom build per your request, or you had the work done elsewhere?

    Paper Towel Alternatives for Carbon Steel & Cast Iron Pans

    I have a dedicated yellow scotch brite for my cast iron and carbon steel. After a while, they will get pretty oily and loaded. At that time, I just throw some detergent onto the sponge and clean it out. Ready to keep using for ages.
