    Bob Kramer Carbon Steel Knives?

    All true but, you can always put them in your spam folder.  The 20% off seems to be a continuing thing for BB&B so if you find something you like - go for it. Jack

    Three Fave Knife Brands

    I like the Teruyasu Fujiwara knives and you can buy direct from him at very reasonable prices.  I bought a 240mm Gyuto and a 150mm Petty from him with ebony handles and they arrived sharp as I've ever seen right out of the box. http://www.teruyasu.net I also like the Konosuke Knives that I...

    Trying to decide between the Konosuke HD2, Mizuno Tanrenjo Akitada Blue #2 and the Masamoto KS Wa Gy

    I love the white #1 and I haven't seen any issues with reactivity at all.  The knife maker sends you a nicely wrapped package including handling instructions and a very nice micro fiber towel.  The while steel has a very slight darkening actually just enough to see the cladding interface.  The...

    Trying to decide between the Konosuke HD2, Mizuno Tanrenjo Akitada Blue #2 and the Masamoto KS Wa Gy

    After several weeks of using both knives, my favorite has become the Teruyasu Fujiwara Nashiji 240mm Gyuto. I just love the feel of the Fuji as it falls through ingredients.  I think the additional weight of the Fuji just gives me a feeling of more control of the knife, (keep in mind that I'm...

    Looking for a quality kitchen chefs knife. Arggg- lost my discussion with one click of the wrong fi

    Well my search for one good knife led me to buy two good knives.  I first got the Konosuke HD2 240mm Gyuto and then after deciding that it was a pretty lightweight knife but excellent abilities, I bought the Teruyasu Fujiwara Nashiji 240mm Gyuto.  I am amazed at the quality of these knives and I...

    Santoku VS Small Gyuto

    If you decide to go with the 7 Inch Hiromoto Gyuto, you might want to act fast since the Owner/Blacksmith retired and the stock is running out fast.

    Poll to pick new knife

    I had that same reaction when I opened the box and used my Kono HD2.. I have to say that the Teruyasu Fujiwara Nashiji 240mm Gyuto is still the sharpest knife OOTB that I have ever seen and if your chef get's one you should compare the two. Jack

    Thoughts/Suggestions for Improving the knife discussion here?

    Good idea that could be very useful for the cook that wants to expand their knife collection.  Too many sites are like a showroom filled with salesmen offering their best most expensive offerings.

    Masamoto KS 270mm Wa-Gyuto

    Thanks,  Because the Masamoto hasn't been in stock for quite some time, I decided to buy the Konosuke HD2 240mm Gyuto.  Then as a follow on I got the Teruyasu Fujiwara Nashiji 240mm Guyto. Both knives are excellent and I'm trying to decide if the additional weight of the Fuji makes a difference...

    Poll to pick new knife

    I wouldn't worry about the Kono HD2 since I got mine 3 weeks ago I use a end grain hard maple cutting board and I chop carrots, turnips, rutabaga, onions and potatoes with ease.  I'm a home cook and was worried about the Kono being "fragile" but it has proven itself on a very hard surface (I...
