- Santoku Knife
Second the Tojiro range. I've got a Tojiro Damascus DP Santoku and a Usuba as well, had them for 3 years, and they hold their edge incredibly well.
IIRC twas about £120 for both.
As for frying pan, I tend to use Le Creuset, but apparently Berndes are far better. Don't believe any of the drivel about celeb chefs using xxxxxx or yyyyyy pans, it's all pish.Posted 8 years ago
Yes, that's the site by doof_doof. Hattori comes highly recommended.
I just thought that you might want it for Xmas and wanted it soon so did not mention JapaneseChefsknife. Their delivery is fast. Koki is very nice to deal with.
Highly recommended. I use them for 3 of my knives and will order few more soon.Posted 8 years agosaleemMember
PANS, BOURGEAT……….anything else is a waste of your time, plus you can put the pan straight in your oven.
KNIVES, WUSTHOF,SHUN,MAC,TOJIRO,Depends if you're going to use a stone or a steel, had most knives over the last 20 years, but still use Wusthof 6 days a week at work and and at home on the other day too.Posted 8 years ago
Deep down, we all know that the most you'll ever use them for is putting two holes in your meal for one from M&S.
Stone him! 😆
I don't/never nuke food in microwave and only use oven occasionally. Everything freshly prepared.
If you need one knives to rule them all then all you need is a Chinese cleaver. That will learn you!

I just recently took a gamble on a daft offer.. Jean-Patrique Professional range. One of those silly offers I normally ignore, but took a punt on a set of 3 Santoku knives for 99p plus £8.95 p+p. I avoided all the other stuff they tried to persuade me to add to the order and just took the 3 knife set. Got to say, I'm impressed (for the money). Still very sharp, nice feel and a pleasure to use. I was planning on spending a small fortune on some "quality Japanese Knives", but for around a tenner… these will do fine for now thanks. These along with a Chinese Cleaver, Bread Knife and a Carving Knife are all you need.
As for pans… frying or otherwise… Circulon.Posted 8 years ago
