think it is over for me. obsessed with vintage chef knives.

damn it. i am searching out vintage american and french made chef knives. i recently got a high carbon steel japanese knife. it cuts like a surgical tool. even running it on my sharpening steel..damn..how can i explain it? it is smooth. super smooth. it makes a "swish" and "zinging" sound that is amazing. my high end german blades make a grinding sound.

i was chopping at my buddies house and he has some old ass, forgecraft high carbon steel chef knife. crazy sharp. same deal with the steel. i just finished sharpening my high carbon butcher knife that i brutalized with a dead bull elk. i first used a japanese waterstone, then cleaned it up the the steel..!!! zing zing zing.

i love it. i might slowly give away or sell my Wustof stuff (to my family. sister and brother have ghetto knives). my wife is so annoyed with me.

there is a whole other word out there!

I used to own a kitchenware store in Boston and we specialized in kitchen knives. At one point I was able to buy from Wusthof knives that were returned to them as "damaged". In many cases they were slight nicks in the edge or the last 1/8 inch at the tip was bent. I fixed them and resell at about 50% off current retail. I also have the occasional carbon steel Sabatier. If you're interested call me at 978-857-8281. Lifetime satisfaction guarantee.

I've actually been using the Miracle Blade knife set They were cheap but I've had them for 6 years now and they're still holding up great! I'm actually impressed at how sharp they've stayed over the years, especially since I have done absolutely nothing to help them along and I abuse the hell out of them. They're nothing like a high end knife, but they certainly get the job done.
