    Fun Question about Specific Knife Styling and Origin if there is one

What are some custom knife makers that can do that japanese type stuff with...

    Fun Question about Specific Knife Styling and Origin if there is one

    I was thinking kind of like a Santoku, I do a lot of vegetables.  I wasn't sure if it could be used or not, I've seen some of them before somewhere just didn't remember where.  Kitchen knives always look so wonderful but straight to me, thought it would be nice to find a more decorated one for...

    Fun Question about Specific Knife Styling and Origin if there is one

    Yeah it looks like on that website the sakai and ryusen are closest to what I was thinking of style wise but not quite as ceremonial or ornate looking.  Those German knives are really nice (I can see those German style lines) but not quite what I was thinking of in regards to the stylistic...

    Fun Question about Specific Knife Styling and Origin if there is one

    Oh ok, like some japanese knives from the base of the handle to the tip are mostly just a hard straight line with no curve to it.  Some of  the custom knife makers that I've looked at or come across since my first post have nice line to it (like from the point over the top to the base of the...

    Looking for advice/recommendations ... I won't put the S word in the title but it's a knife question

    Wow thank you all for the information!  I will look it all over and make a decision, I really appreciate the speediness!  Strike while the iron is hot I suppose I'll have to look into the carbon core thing.  That makes sense about if its too thick it will just break a carrot to use your...

    Hello everyone! First I would like to say I only decided to post after 30 minutes of going through the search list for Shun. I was in Williams Sonoma today for some other things and tried some knives while I was there. I really like fruit and veggies and that is most of what I do, and I just...
