There is literally no reason to get any knife other than the Tojiro DP and some waterstones. Why are there so many people making wrong choices?

obviously you've never worked in a high volume kitchen before if you think Japanese steel is the best for all applications. I use Shuns personally but I have experience as an actual cook at some decent restaurants and I can do in 5 minutes with a 8" chefs knife and a cutting board what you couldn't do in 20 with a whole selection of knives. so when I say Japanese steel dulls very quickly under high volume of work and German knives, such as Wusthoffs, are unbeatable for their durability and lack of need to steel or sharpen in high volume prep applicatons. Ive used high end Wustoffs and they are heavier and thicker than Shuns but they are great to work with. Every tool has a purpose. Anyone that gets a boner and brags about their brand of knife is a fucking tool. I've seen great chefs do good work with those cheap plastic handled blades from Sysco. Its funny when you think something as inconsequential as brand of knife really makes that big of a difference.

>>7082828

right? we would make fun of these gear whore tools when they didn't have the skills to back up their bullshit in any kitchen I worked at. nice knives are great to have. but if you think you are superior to someone because of what brand knife you chose you are autistic.

>>
>>7085176
Imo get a 1000 and a 6000.

Anything 600 or under is going to take too much metal off.

A 600 grit is for putting an edge on a dull knife. A 1000 is for maintaining an already sharp edge and is more forgiving especially for a beginner. 6000 is for polishing. Which contrary to what many will say is vey important in the maintenance of a high carbon knife. Plus polishing knives is a skill that improves cut as well as appearence.

100 grit is for working from a roughed edge. (for unsharpened knife or for chipped edge repairs)

500 for putting a sharp edge from a dull one. (Usually first sharpen or repair from corrosion)

1000 for refining and edge to true. (Daily sharpening stone) some use smaller grit for their daily maintenance but at that point is dependent on the knife and the person sharpening.

Anything over 2000 is for varying degrees of polishing. The higher the grit the less likely you are to scuff up your knife. A mirror finish can be achieved on 6000 allegedly but i have never done it. Many who want a mirror finish use a 6000 and the finish on a 10000.

They all have different uses and are better in certain situations than others.
I own all of these and some others in between.
>>
>>7085537
You forgot to mention that the 210 will be shorter.
>>
>there are people who don't sharpen their knives using belgian coticules

lmao
>>
>>7085544
I like how you say less than 600 is bad, and then you go on to say a 500 is good.

People need to stop being so afraid of the coarse stones. If you're afraid you're going to ruin your knife, practice on another knife.

>A mirror finish can be achieved on 6000 allegedly but i have never done it

Sounds like you're using too much pressure and/or not letting the mud build up.

I have this set. It is absolute shit if you've ever used sharp knives. The only part that gets used is the steak knives when I don't want to hand wash.

I also have a set of Henkel knives. I hand wash all of them. Some are twin signature, I have a 6" four star, a couple victorinoxs and a case xx carving knife. Also an imperial carbon butcher knife and a no name carbon cleaver. Not even mad.

I agree.
There's nothing you can do with a 900 dollar knife you can't do with a $20 knife.
>>
I moved out recently and I've just been cutting with a cheap set of knives from target. Should I invest in a decent chef's knife? I cook for myself obviously but I don't do anything complicated. Any suggestions on brand? Should I just get the kickstarter meme knife? What about sharpening? Should I just use an electric one or should I learn how to use a stone? Also, what's the deal with the honing rod that came with my knife set?
>>
>>7086652
besides brag and show off

that's why i bought a 200 dollars switchblade
>>
>>7082784

Meh, I bought the Kohetsu 210mm Gyuto in Aogami Super because I wanted a laser in AS without costing a fortune. I like it.
>>
>>7082784
>waterstones

Really though, as long as your knife has a decent steel choice and heat treatment, learning to sharpen and actually keeping your knives sharp is going to have way more of an impact than spending a fortune on high-end knives.
>>
>>7087833
Just spent $85 on white #1 240mm gyuto. Most I've ever spent on a knife...hopefully will be worth it. My current chef's can't hold an edge for shit.
