    Devils,

    I’m looking for some chef’s knife suggestions. I did the general google search already and wasn’t really impressed with what the likely bought and paid for articles had to say.

    My max budget is around $200 or so, and I typically prefer full tang for the weight, but I keep an open mind. Around 8” or 10” blade, no more. Stainless preferred. I was looking at some Shun’s and Kanetsune’s because they’re prevalent, but I’d much prefer something handcrafted that shows off some craftsmanship. Not sure if I need to increase my budget for that.

    Gonna be using it for general cooking like this: upload_2019-11-23_16-2-22.jpeg

    Help a Devil out!

    (p.s. this seemed like the most appropriate venue for this type of post, but I’m open to other interpretations if you savages think this would be better suited in another section.)

    Stay hungry Devils.

    -Nobody

    I would of course recommend getting something from Jason, but if that doesnt work, I love the Bark River stuff.

    That's beautiful! No time frame really. I understand something like that takes as much time as it takes, so really no time frame when it comes to something handcrafted. Quality can't be rushed. DM sent.

    Yup, pretty sure I'm going to explore that route. I sometimes forget there's so many amazing artists on here.

    When it shows up, take plenty of pics. BUTT*, you MUST include at least one shoe in every pic of Jason's knives! :bwah:

    No shoe! I'm disappointed man... really disappointed.... :lulz:

    Shoe in picture — can do.

    It looks like there may be the faintest bit of footwear in the middle at the very bottom. Very covert.

    You're right. Just the tippy toe, and I missed it. Now THAT restores my faith in humanity, or at least Jason's photography skills! :lulz:
