I’m in the Doghouse Now!

If I had stopped at the cheap Mercer knife, I had purchased from Amazon I’d have been fine. (See previous thread) Unfortunately, there was a sale over Labor Day at Cutlery and More, so my wife is now mad at me because I purchased 3 more new knives.

 

She suggested I have a problem :shock: and to this I must agree. :roll: I didn’t “need” any of these knives, but one was such a good price and the other two are, as Old Man Parker said on Christmas Story, “Indescribably Beautiful!”. :) Below is a short video of the objects of my wife’s wrath.

This first knife is a 9” Dragon Storm Chef’s knife by Apogee Cutlery. It’s made of BD1N steel with a HRC of 63. It was on Clearance with an additional 20% off for Labor Day.

 

This next knife is an Enso SG2 7” Bunka knife. It’s made of 101 layers of stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was on sale with special price and 20% off for Labor Day.

 

This last knife is an Miyabi Artisan 9.5” Kiritsuke knife. It’s made of 2 layers of hammered stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was offered at special introductory price for Labor Day.

 

Here’s the video:

I’m going to have to cook some good food using these knives to get out of the Doghouse. B)

 

Thanks for looking.

I am a huge fan of the Miyabi stuff.  Several years ago I bought a Kaizen II chef and i loved it.  It was my go-to.  I managed to drop it and ruin it by taking a bit chunk out of the blade.  After crying about that for a while I decided to replace it with  one of the nicer Miyabis and I have never looked back.

Thanks John. I do love my Miyabi Artisans. I wanted a Nakiri but they don't make a Nakiri or a Bunka in that series so that is why I purchased the Enso. It's real nice as well but the handle isn't quite as comfortable the the Artisan's. (If I ad to choose between them)
