Knife Misinformation

cowboyardee | Dec 10, 2013 03:13 PM's_Knives_C...

During my internet browsing, I came across a page on kitchen knives brimming with misinformation. I know, I know, stop the presses - someone on the internet is wrong about something. This page, though, is elaborately deluded and detailed to the point of actually being interesting, rather than just misguided.

The page comes from a custom knife maker who probably specializes in non-kitchen knives. And of course, he is likely selling knives to those who are more interested in collection pieces than in functionality in the kitchen. Fair enough. But I found it, frankly, fascinating how he applied the depth of his knowledge to justify so many awful design choices, to trumpet them as superior.

Yes, this thread is snarky. I can live with that. I realise this may only appeal to a few fellow knife geeks on the forum. It might stir up some interesting discussion about theory, or it might be nothing more than an interesting read. I was fascinated, anyway.
