I like this website. Thank you for the link.
I did some online looking and the price of the Tojiro at Amazon isn't that far off. I know Amazon can gouge sometimes.
I don't consider myself a knife snob. I used to buy cheap knives until I bought my first knife with a D2 steel blade decades ago. When I learned that a knife with good steel would cut easier and edge life was so much greater I became a little picky about knife steels. There are more exotic steels out there than VG10 but VG10 performs in the way I expect at the price that I am comfortable with.
I do consider myself a tool snob. If a certain tool performs much better than another I will certainly pony up the extra money for the better tool.
Just the faux forge marks on the flats of factory knives to fool folks into thinking the knife was forged because "forged must be better". If you understand the deception is just for appearances...I guess that's ok. As someone who has forged blades and still hangs around with bladesmiths all the time it is just a flawed finish, not even faux.
I love the 4" Victorinox straight blade / spear point : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005LRYE36/
VG-10 is a solid choice and underrated with today’s super steels. Sharpens easy, takes a great edge, holds an edge well, etc. What’s not to like?
All of my fish cutting blades are in stainless and by either Forschner (Victorinox) or Chicago Cutlery - and you still have to take care of them to prevent rust/corrosion problems. If and when I need another filet knife it will probably be by Dexter Russell - they do good quality inexpensive blades... that provide good service.
I agree. I though, maybe the knife makers are putting those on the blade so food does not stick.
However, it still cuts well.
and so do these
That looks pretty much what I have in the knife block on my kitchen counter.
Can't beat the "classics"...
Agree, those look like knives in my grandmother’s kitchen, which has been closed for many years, but which I visit often in my mind.
That means you've been keeping 'em sharp!
