I’m aware of the location. I’ve seen other chefs in the same kitchen using their own knives.
At the same time I cannot blame him for not bringing his expensive knife for a 10 minute meal prep (when it comes to using the knife). He cut/deveined/chopped roughly some shrimps and a little bit of veggies.

I saw this in Youtube Awesome thread. Any idea about the knife? Looks like a Carter but not sure.

Could be a Henry Hyde? I've seen Lucas post something about Hyde knives on his IG story, aesthetics seem like that could be it

At 2:10 you can see in front of the pointer finger near the spine something which looks either like a 9 or an S

There’s several videos of Jacques Pepin using Feder knives, including this one posted by Geoff himself


I had forgotten about him until now. I recall he was working with Carl Ruiz on a knife when he died. I think I remember him posting about it on another forum but maybe it was re-posts from others.

Not my style but I mean, if the master is a fan of his work... 👍

Thank you! It's definitely look like them with the handle shape.

Just saw this one on an Uncle Roger video in Thuy Diem Pham’s restaurant (Little Viet Kitchen). Was at first hoping it was a Denka but looks a little more mainstream?

Looks like 'the' standard tsuchime damascus OEM knife. Shows up with both red-brown pakka wood western handle and a variety of wa-handle options, though the most common is the dark brown + pakka bolster version ian linked. Almost all shops sell it in, though usually under a different name.

My man matty matheson is usually spotted with a z-kramer or nenohi nenox. But today it looks like he's rocking an opinel and maybe even a nata on his knife rack??

Watched a video recently where he said he donated his zKramer for charity and it raised $7K. Bob reached out to him directly and to show his appreciation, he made Matty a knife.

Are you sure he uses Nenox? I thought they were Corian Mcusta Zanmai's?

Also, I spot a Middleton made chef knife on the left of his mag strip.

I've seen a corian nenox a bunch of times. Haven't spotted the mcusta but that doesn't mean he doesn't also use one.

Here's a shot of the logo on the nenox from his chorizo lasagna video:

Looks like the one to the left of the Opinel is a Takeda Seiryu...I don't think I'll ever part with mine.

Wow nice catch! I thought that the handle resembled the style I've seen on Japanese "outdoor" type knives -- hunters, choppers, etc. Looks like some retailers advertise the takeda seiryu as a hunting knife. What do you use it for in the kitchen? All purpose utility?

Soulful blade, very cool.

Personally, I have no use for it in my kitchen. The blade is super-stout and better suited to the abuses of a campsite. It would work for breaking down large bone joints or hard squash?
As you can see, the spine is almost twice the thickness of my Watanabe outdoor knife.
