well its been real fun learning about knives, trying different types of knives, and, of course, buying knives. but i think i might finally have every knife i might possibly need.
You prefer the suji to the gyuto?
I wouldn't say you 'need' one, but have you considered a nakiri?
There's nothing you couldn't do with a santoku or gyuto, but damn they are good fun to chop vegetables with. I bought the JCK white steel Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan 165mm kuruochi finish nakiri and I have to say it is definitely the most fun knife I use. Super sharp too.
Do you mean Katsuramuki? Like this...i would like to learn to do that thing where you peel a cucumber japanese style. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif
hey daveDo you mean Katsuramuki? Like this...
I think that is more a technique for a Usuba than a Nakiri. The Santoku seems to be the red headed step child of J-knives here but they are getting quite popular.
BTW Nice collection! I guess I'm not the only Masamoto fan!
