    Knife roll was stolen, need suggestions

    I bought the artifex 210 in 52100, haven't seen many ultimatum's available in any other flavors of steel other than aeb-l, and aogami. Despite being basic and ugly, I grew to love my richmond 240 tall gyuto, despite an inability to hold a steep edge for any long period of time. I also grew...

    Knife roll was stolen, need suggestions

    BrianShaw that was a joke right? I usually keep my knives in my work locker, once every couple of weeks I'll bright them home for sharpening. This wasn't some envious Co worker... this was probably some drug addict. I usually use my Suji for slicing cooked and uncooked meet. Breaking down...

    Best knife for mid to high level experience

    You can find it on amazon, not a true Damascus knife. The folds are purely cosmetic although the hammered dimples help to prevent food sticking to the blade, similar to a granton or hollow edge blade. Tojiro are absolutely great knives, and your not going to find much of that quality or...

    Coreless Damascus

    I was quoting jck. As stated above. All I am asking is do you see any benefits of this. Why can't I find any info on them, surely someone has bought one. The outer "Damascus" outer layers on say a shun, are purely aesthetic correct? Do you see any benefits in layering vg-2 and vg-10 as your...
