Wow! This is the last place I expected to see a knife thread!I am into woodworking and audio, and have been wanting to upgrade my kitchen arsenal for quite a while. Anyone have recommendations for a good blade/s for chopping/dicing veggies and cutting fruits. I will be using a end grain wooden cutting board and have a complete setup for every possible sharpening situation already (from my woodworking shop). I need something that will not rust easily, as the wife is not so careful with stuff!
"Damascus steel" and "wootz" are the same thing and they date back more than 2000 years. "Damascus steel" was simply what the Westerners called pattern-welded steel.
Well, historically that's not true. Damascus dates back quite a ways but there are no records of how it was made. Wootz steel is a reconstruction that obtains results that are very similar to ancient Damascus, but no one living today really knows for sure it's made the same.
hahaha, is it passion or obsession? Men with all the electronics with thousands of volts passing through it or interest in intricate mechanism or with sharp, deadly objects...
Not only is Carter a great knifemaker,he's an amazing sharpener! He won our "Sharpening Olympics" over at KF.
I've been thinking of getting a nice slicer soon. Any you would recommend? Not expensive though Anyway, talking about new knives. I went to Korin on Mon and couldn't help myself and got another Misono 24cm carbon steel again.
Uh-oh, Buddy, looks like you caught the bug .....
I have seen this fellow at several custom knife shows. His stuff is AMAZING & his sharping demos scary! He is Murray Carter, he is Canadian and moved to Japan to study under The Yoshimoto clan smiths. He has since graduated and moved to Oregon, USA. He is a 17th Generation Yoshimoto Bladesmith and Certified Master Bladesmith. I just ordered some of his stuff during a sale he had for newsletter subscribers. Here is a link to his site. http://www.cartercutlery.com/
I read about the new store at another forum. Presuming they have a web site I'll have to check them out sometime- NY is a long way from SD!
