Have you ever tried to explain to the TSA guy why you have nail gun with you on the way to Cancun ?, well it says on them oil daily !! so even when I go on vacation I have to oil them daily.

Re: What Brand Kitchen Knives Do You Foodies Use?


I mostly use a commercial set of knives, intended for any task, the most one being used is Chopped Stainless Steel Cleaver/Butcher Knife.

A while back an Edge Pro Apex 1 knife sharpening kit and cooking 3-4 days a week I sharpen them every 2 weeks or so, more in the summer since you deal with a larger volume and bulkier cuts of meat, so to have a sharp knife is the key.

Re: What Brand Kitchen Knives Do You Foodies Use?


I gotta get into the cleaver game.

My mom just offered her coffin freezer to us. I think once that's here, I'm going to look into getting a beef quarter or some other larger quantity then do more butchering at home.
The goal is to step up gardening and food purchasing to the point that I'm paying as close to zero as possible for food.
The more I save on my weekly meals, the more avocado toast points I can afford at boozy brunch on the weekend, as is the wont of all Millennials.

About 7 years ago I bought my wife a whole set of Henckels and she hardly uses them because she is afraid of them

Mostly Henckels.

Re: What Brand Kitchen Knives Do You Foodies Use?


I have a variety, henckle, global, wusthof, MAC, Shuns, Kaisumi (probably my most used). Honestly all good knives.

If you want cheap but good Victorinox is an excellent choice; that's what I used when I worked in a restaurant. Cutco are over price, and they sell based on the fact most people have crap knives in their house. I had a Cutco salesman give me a demonstration and I busted out my knives and he was really impressed.

We do have one Victorinox that I found in a supersack full of cocoa bean shells back when I worked in my dad's feed mill. That thing wouldn't have made very good dairy feed, but it has been a good knife.

I like the gold center rivet.

This thread lead anybody to a bunch of youtube videos of people chopping vegetables? I spent quite a while last night just watching different people cut peppers because every time I cut a pepper I think to myself, "I'll bet there's a better way to do this."
Turns out, there really isn't. Peppers are just weird to cut.

I stand em up and make 4 curved slices taking the sides off and leaving the seeds and stem as one unit.

Haha, I was tempted to go on the 'tube and start looking at knife videos, but don't have the time this week to get sucked into that. Once I get started it'll be hours before I get back out.
Probably this weekend...
