Hey guys,
I recently purchased my first J-knife thanks to Mark and all of you guys. Since work doesn't keep to busy this summer, I have quite some free time and I was wondering if there are any suggestions of either a book, of some lengthy reading online to help acquire more knowledge. Thank you!
(Oh and also I've been through all (ok I'm lying, most) the resources of CTKG) I'm mostly interested in reading, not too much in videos.

An Edge in the Kitchen is a good resource for beginners. It doesn't get terribly deep into the subject matter, but it does cover a lot of topics and what it has is informed and factually correct as I know it.

Thank you for the suggestion Steve. I have seen those (might watch them again though!). Definitely a great introduction video, that helped me figuring out a lot of different things as a beginner.

Thanks Lepus, I had read good reviews on it. I'll take a look at it.

That's the book that got me started on my journey. As you say, not rich in detail but a good read for a beginner.

Much better than Mastering Knife Skills which is not half as good IMO.
