Thread: The more about Santoku knife vs chef knife

  1. #1

    The more about Santoku knife vs chef knife

    The santoku cut, has an edge that is totally straight and it doesn't have a pointed tip. This makes it awesome for slashing little groups of vegetables and mincing herbs effortlessly and rapidly. Most santoku blades don't have a reinforce, which is the hill of metal between the sharp edge and the handle. Thus, you can hone and cut with the whole edge of the blade, which you can't do with most gourmet specialist's blades. The wide, level cutting edge is additionally valuable for gathering up fixings so you can place them into a bowl or a container. In case you're searching for a "one-measure fits all" sort of blade that you can use to cut a variety of nourishments, I'd select the santoku. It's a decent workhorse-sort cut plan that is awesome for cutting boneless meat, cheddar, vegetables, herbs, natural product, and a wide range of different nourishments.

    Wow, I don't think I've ever heard of such a description for a knife.

    I've never seen a Santoku with a straight edge. Everyone I've ever used or seen has a slight belly.

    I've never read such a description, either!

    Steve, it's not a good idea to put political views in the same place you advertise your business.

    I'm not sure what your referring too, but yes jammers, I agree, it's not a good idea to post "political" views in the same place that someone would advertise their business, that's why I would never consider doing such a thing.

    first off, ALL lives matter, Blue lives are precious to me as my 2 step-sons are LE, but ALL lives matter. second, I have spent the last 46 years making and keeping America great. those are the political views referenced.
    all seriousness aside, the initial post reads like a spammy website description of a blade for sale. the person who posted it does not have any personal information on his profile.

    Funny thing....When Jammer began here I thought perhaps his sig line was a subtle dig at Steve's sig line. An exact polar opposite...hmmmm... But as I am often overly suspicious I dismissed the notion. But now I see I was hasty....The "admonition" is due to the fact that steve has his website link right above his sig line wheras Jammer does not....And...apparently the game is afoot. Sheesh...I get tired of this crap on forums...not people posting their views( I could care less what someone's sig line says)...but the needling by someone with a burr under their saddle...which usually escalates.

    If I am way off Jammer...my apologies...but my BS meter is clanging wildly....(it is historically VERY accurate)

    The original post struck me as spam as well, for a company or knife we know nothing about. Heck, I don't even agree with the premise.

    Lets lay off the politics guys.

    Jammer, Steve has the right to post anything that isn't against forum rules in his sigline just like anybody else, including you. If he needs/wants business advice from anyone he'll ask for it. Moving forward, please keep unsolicited advice to yourself. It simply isn't worth swatting the hornets nest. Agreed?
