A Nice Gift For A Culinary School Grad

No Comments 20 May 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Japanese Kitchen Knives

If you are going to give a gift of a nice chef’s/cook’s knife as a present for that culinary school grad you may want to take a look at the Japanese version.  The Kantsune Gyuto does the same kitchen tasks as the western chef’s knife but you may find it a bit lighter and just slightly different style of blade.

This knife features a core of VG10 that is layered with 16 plys of stainless steel on each side for the Damascus pattern with wooden handles and a stainless steel bolster for strength.  This is an incredibly sharp knife that can retain it’s edge longer than most and if you notice it has a straight line edge  as compared to the small arc in the chef’s knife, which means you will be using a chopping motion rather than a rocking motion when using.  There are a number of the Kanetsune Traditional DamascusKT101-574x574 blade kitchen knives all very lightweight, very sharp and well made worth checking out.

Something Different For A Slicing Knife

No Comments 17 May 1:24 pm Author: Randy Category:Japanese Kitchen Knives

I did a dinner party the other evening for a large number of people and had pork tenderloin for the main course, a lot of it, and I thought I would try something different as far slicing for a change.  I went with the Sakon Single Bevel Yanagi with it’s long narrow blade.

I used the 10″ single bevel made fromMolybdenum Vadaium  with the Wedge wood  traditional “D” shaped handle, extremely sharp.  It was great I was able to cut precise slices  with just one pull through through the roast leaving each plate with virtually identical slices.  I am still in the learing curve with the signle bevel but I would highly recommend this Japanese kitchen knifeSakon-Yanagi to your kitchen kninfe collection.z

A Filleting Knife For The Fisherman/Ourdoorsman

No Comments 14 May 10:01 am Author: Randy Category:Butcher Knife

Just got back from the Outer Banks and went over to Oregon Inlet to watch all of the sport fishermen come in with their catch of the day.  Most of the fishermen are from out of town and they turn their catch over to locals to clean and fillet that catch for  “X” amount of money per pound and as I was watching I was thinking about how much a J A Henckels filleting knife would have saved them

The knife I had in mind was the Twin Pro ‘S’ 7″ filleting knife that is precision forged, ice temered for maxium strength, hardness and flexibility .  then lasers are used to make sure the edge is at it’s most precise angle for it’s razor sharp edge.  Triple riveted ABS hadles with a curved bolster for the thumb for safety and control while making precision cuts.  This J A Hencknifeels Knife is only one of a number of fine quality kitchen knives made for the outdoorman;s butchering tasks.

A Nice Starter Set For A Wedding Gift

No Comments 13 May 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:kitchen knife set

With the wedding season upon us and you are looking for a nice gift for the couple there may be  some things you want to consider.  I read an article the other day saying giving kitchen cutlery to a couple was a horrible idea, they would wind up cutting themselves, maybe so but if you use some common sense it will be okay.

If the couple haven’t a clue to what goes on in the kitchen (yes, they are out there) they will eventually learn so why not start them out with a really good starter set, something to get comfortable with.  What I would recommend is the chef and paring knife combination set, this should get the greatest number of tasks in the kitchen taken care of.  I am giving the TWIN Pro :’S’ Henckels  Knife SetH35645-Twin-Pro-2pc-Chef-set with an 8″ Chef’s Knife and 4″ Paring knife, a great combination that will last a lifetime and a good starter set to buld a collection around as well.

If you like to make your own stew in the colder weather with left over pieces or meat or poultry, prepeping baby back ribs, or slicing away fat or even filleting, take a look at this.  From Global Their flexible bonging knife.

With a very narrow 6 1/4″ blade with a pointed tip this knife is great for cutting meat away from the bone, and with it’s pointed tip it’s great for a deep cut as well.  If you are preparing ribs this knife is great for peeling the silver from the rack also for cutting away fat from meat portions and filleting in some cases.  This Boning Knife from Global Japanese Knives isGlobal-Boner-574x574 great with poultry and even though it is flexible, with it’s Cromova stainless steel, 1/4″ razors edge this knife can do beef as well as pork, just remember don’t try to cut or hack through bones.
