    What could they be ?, Where did they come from ?, what do I think of them ? What does the cat think of them ?,..


    All this and more after this commercial break (And by that I mean I need to run to the accountants for dad, pick up a friend for lunch while dropping some stuff off, and then Ill be back home later to actually open them up)

    Are you excited for the first Fora Loaner thread ?, I know I am....

    Those are the before... I did buy yeast and everything else so the after will look much nicer when I actually have time to mess them up lol


    Or they were used to package the knives ves for safe travel... which ever you prefer lol

    There is a flaw in that logic, in that I buy my baked goods

    Florida cowboys were called crackers as they used whips to drive the cattle.

    Aren't there supposed to be knives being reviewed here? Or am I in the wrong place again?

    know they will be but i want to get uses to them (one at a time) before commenting so i can talk about the knives for what they are when comfortable for me.

    i can say all three cut and onions well though lol

    Lets get it on !!!

    So im making some garlic mashed potatoes (Probably a little cheese in there to just to make certain, of which I know not what), to go along side a pork roast I got going on, so the Craft is going to work on prep for the potatoes while I get to play with my Konosuke Suji as well. Its a good night for knives in my house

    Skinned some taters, sliced them up to prepare for boiling, and chopped down some garlic to almost nothing, The forgecraft got some good use tonight. With a lower profile then that of my nakiri, and a completely different feel It took a bit to get used to at first. once I got my angles down and moved the cutting board to the edge of the table to help with clearance I was able to make this guy feel a lot better. it doesnt slide itself through potatoes the way my nakiri does, but it does go through without to much trouble, its balance is nice and comfortable to use (Mostly on push slices for me), Realized for some smaller stuff its not a bad sized for a smaller knife, although a bit big for peeling, after two potatoes I switched over to the koishi petty, both only cause I dropped the peeler into a dirty sink filled with dishes, but for prep I did find out its not a bad knife at all and I like the size, but then I have my nakiri so im not sure I really need a knife of this size,... but then I really dont need a knife to buy a knife, but im not buying another knife for a while lol

    The forgecraft is a cool little knife, glad I finally got some good use in on it, it was a pleasure to meet this blade, and I dont think im done with it yet

    It is surprising what an 8" chef knife can do for you.

    Have you had a chance to play with the Cut Brooklyn yet? The handle on those knives looks so uncomfortable, but I'm curious to see what you think about the blade itself.

    I cut some potatoes with it once, not really enough to say, but I can say the handle wasnt uncomfortable, just different, after a second or two I really didnt notice it much
