My favorites (from Shun) are the 10" chef's knife and the tomato knife.

Mike. A 10”chef knife and paring knives is what I’d want.

Can’t wait to order some from you. Keep me posted!




Regards,

P.

I’m covered on kitchen/prep knives. The one thing I do not have is a nice set of steak knives.

i think i will do the first batch in AEB-L stainless. very popular steel for custom kitchen knives. i may then branch out to more exotic carbon steel or damascus models.

A good cleaver is something I don't have and would be tempted to buy.

There is very little you can't do with a 8" Chef Knife & Paring knife. Throw in a 8" bread knife and you are good to go for %99 of kitchen needs.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

i do believe the first two models will be a santoku and a large chef's knife. i am working on the profile of the santoku right now. i want it to be traditional but have our Liontribe style accents. we are excited to be branching out in new directions.

Another vote for 8" Chef style, my 8" Shun does 99% of my basic chores

The course I took taught 3 knifes for 95% of kitchen work. An 8-10" chef preferably a 10" since it's easier to make control contact with the cutting board. A Paring knife for all small detail cuts etc. and a 240-270mm serrated knife like the Tojiro 270mm.

The serrated knife isn't just for bread. It's for sectioning out Butternut Squash, Melons etc etc. A really good serrated knife can be a revelation! Your basic straight bread knife is just that, for just bread.


Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................

I worked in a Bar / Grill out of school. We had off set bread knife for cutting subs. I got where I was damn near a wizard with that knife. I actually preferred it to a chef knife for %99 of things. Except for maybe doing large volume of prep with meat.
