wow ....never thought i would get so many reactions on my kitchen stuff
thanks for the compliments !
about the picture... it can be a hell of a job sometimes to get the right reflection ( especially when you want to picture 2 knives together) damast is not easy to work with !
composition is ( i hope) a little bit of skill.... i see my pics more as art than registration
as i said a bit earlier... my knives are my models and i play the painter
btw i never photoshop or change colours and use only daylight
and leo, nice set these komachis!! (i looked them up)
and again thanks ... i hope to show you some more pinups soon!
impressive cutlery kees, professional quality photo my friend!
Sorry, drooling over those blades -- not very sanitary, I know, but can't help it!
... and what's the stamping on that, Jan. Who makes kitchen cutlery w/ a bowtie shield ?? I'm envious.
re: the wooden handled one.
It was originally identical to the btm one. I spent about a year evaluating other (current) manufacturer's steel before I decided on the laminated VG10. In that process, Abby identified a handle used on J.A Henkels 5-star line that she found comfortable. When I finally decided on the VG10 .. she got one handled to her preference..That Catt Chef's knife .. the blade is only 0.060" thick .. @ the spine .. It's SWEET.
And frozen food is even no match for the cleaver !!
It is very comfortable to use and I like the Catt kitchen ware also!
Looks sweet, Jan.
The curved surfaces of the handle lead me to think .. comfortable in use.
My favorite I think
My kitchen cutlery was exclusively Cattaraugus .. till about 7 yrs ago .. @ which time I started converting over to the VG-10 core laminated w/ either 33 or 35 layers (depending upon the knife) of SUS430 & SUS431 high carbon steel on either side. The edge holding on this steel is simply amazing. Of the knives in my kitchen .. these are ones I use. They're all VG-10 core laminated steel
the 2 remaining pcs of Cattaraugus. Cattaraugus simply made some sweet kitchen cutlery !!!
