Those of us who are fortunate enough to live near the coast have the privilege of enjoying fresh oysters. The gentle, sea-infused taste of an oyster is incredibly unique and worth going out of the way for. If you want to prepare oysters at home, however, you’ll want to get an oyster shucker knife. These specialty tools make the process of opening oysters up much easier, enabling you to spend less time picking out broken pieces of shell and more time enjoying your oysters.
It’s sometimes hard to justify buying a Shun chef knife. Shun’s high-quality Japanese style knives are beautiful, effective, and fairly hassle-free as far as Japanese knives go. Unfortunately, they’re also pretty pricey. A nice Damascus Shun knife tends to be noticeably more expensive than options from competing brands like Dalstrong or even Yoshihiro.
You don’t have to dive very far into the world of Japanese knives before exotic terminology gets thrown around. Even if you’re a knife expert, familiar with all the different types of steel and different edge grinds, you might not know about the unique names that the Japanese use for their knives.
Miyabi has brought together unique Japanese artistry and German engineering mastery to bring forth an exclusive and classic kitchen knife set.
Sabatier is a name associated with quality and elegant design. However, it is always important to carefully review your choice since there are so many different Sabatier brands.
Wusthof vs. Cutco has been a big dilemma for me for months! I’ve wanted a knife set that would complement my kitchen and be functional yet durable at the same time. It seemed impossible to have all three features until I found out about Cutco and Wusthof knives.
The Miyabi Birchwood collection is fabricated with authentic Japanese workmanship and artistry along with German technology and engineering, resulting in incredibly sharp knives with the ultimate ergonomic design and offering you an unmatched cutting experience.
Cutco has a fairly unique business model. Instead of relying on smart pricing, good advertising, and great web presence, it uses a direct marketing approach. Cutco hires many salespeople, mostly college students, to visit their friends and family members and demonstrate how good their knives are in-person. The power of these demonstrations is enough to drive sales, even with the high price-tag on Cutco knives.
Miyabi is perhaps one of the best-known professional Japanese knife makers. Their knives go through the famous honbazuke three-step sharpening process. While Japanese, they borrow from the Western approach, too. Comfortable to handle, they will do well in any kitchen.
The most important difference between a super expensive Shun and a crazy cheap Ginsu knife is the metal each knife is made out of. While things like balance, ergonomics, aesthetics, and handle materials all make a difference, the material that actually makes up the blade has a lot to do with how the knife performs.
