    Howdy all again...

    Small scale grilling

    Howdy all :) I'm addicted to cast iron, yes I need help :p and the memory of my old Habatchi from childhood has been growing on me for a few years now. Lately I have been looking at Lodge's little grill and finding that I am running out of excuses for not buying one. Largly in part that I...

    Cast Iron Grinders

    My tech keeps stepping backwards... I put this post here because I didn't know where else to place it :p The more I get into food and cooking the more I shy away from new fangled gadgets. My crock pots sit idle, the processor sits gathering dust, and I don't know the last time I touched my...

    The Deba thread again

    Ok with my last purchase I have raised my spending bar a bit, and I found I was ok so far with the ammount. Now that I have some solid traditional knives in my "set", Watanabe Ajikiri, Knousuki Usuba, and now a Kochi Yanagi, I'm back to looking/researching my Deba for the traditional KU set...

    Fun day at a cooking class lol

    My wife saw that there was a cooking class on Pho at my work and asked if we could join it. I got tickets and we had a good evening with the instructer and other "students". Durring the course of the class I had made a few comments on knife skills (instructer asked) and maintainance. As we where...

    Back in the Kitchen again :p

    LOL Looks like my hours in the butcher shop kept shrinking (low guy on the totem pole) and I kept asking for more hours. So the main kitchen chef asked if I could help out with dishes. Working 5 hours a week makes one kind of hungry so I took the offer of 3 days a week doing dishes. Now I'm...

    Emerald Swifts

    Today has been a whirlwind of emotions I tell ya. As many know I'm a bit of an addict for my nitch interests. Lucky for me drugs where never very interesting to me :) However things with scales (oddly knives fit that area), fish and reptiles, have been my first true obsessions (and overdoses)...

    Bugger I was going to order the New video on Nakiri Knives but the shipping pushed this up to the $50 range and I just don't see me getting it for that price. I really enjoy the videos made by artisans doing their craft and if I could would buy any and all their DVD's linked to anything I...

    Albums you always want available

    The other thread on favorite bands got me to thinking about albums that as a whole I just have to keep in rotation. Sure some groups I like more than any one album they made and some groups I would not buy anything else they did but that one album that just worked for me. So what are the...

    Oiling down for the change of seasons

    Every change of season I rub down all my carbon knives with camilia oil. As the weather turns colder in the Apt and the AC gets turned into the Heater being on, I get out the oil and rub everything. Just to prevent issues and inspect knives that may not have seen use since last oiling. This...

    Kochi and Carter comparison

    Earlier I mentioned that my new Kochi 210 gyuto was as thin behind the edge as my carter 180 nakiri. I got ahold of my daughters camera and took some pics to show you all just incase you where interested. Kochi being a name I'm not familier with and addmitidly a bit nervous about buying for the...
