Oops.... At least it's sharp

Sun Apr 20, 2014 6:20 pm

So this might make you cringe. Tried out my new kono hh suji today on a beautiful bone-in ham. Slicing along and felt a little resistance but nothing too bad. Get to the bottom of the cut and what's staring at me.... A perfectly severed bone about an inch diameter. The jaws of the people watching hit floor and said "oh my god that knife is sharp". Little did they know I was crying inside and wanting to get my 60x loupe to see the damage. No visible chips with the naked eye. Live and learn.

That is unreal, the one I got wasn't all that sharp.

I wouldn't use a Kono on a bone in anything, just my opinion

No point in having it then. Just need to.be a little more careful. Can't be afraid of it

My first read through I thought you had lopped off a finger.

Maybe it was his finger but the knife was so sharp he just doesn't realize it yet. :mrgreen:

You probably hit cartilage bone would have stopped your knife and if it was nice and slow cooked while hard won't hurt it too bad :)

My first though was that this was a blood and stitches story also. Glad to hear it wasn't.

It is nice to know the knife performed admirably and wasn't damaged.

Good luck, enjoy your knife

Mike
