Hi Shaun, this may be a silly question, but in all your videos you just swipe debris (onion skins, pepper cores, whatever), off to your right. Do you have a gigantic garbage bin there or something? Do you have a picture of your setup you can post? It's been bugging me, because if I did that, all my garbage would end up on the floor! :D

Hahaha, I was waiting for that question for a while!

It's actually my kitchen trash can; Just a standard one with a lid that sometimes doubles as a backboard. ;)

I have pretty good aim, but occasionally I do get stuff on the floor. Thankfully the tile cleans up pretty easily.

A while ago I decided it was too much trouble to keep all the trash on the board and still make a clean presentation for video, so I found of a quick-n-dirty method for disposing of the waste: Throw it! :mrgreen:

They trickle in a few at a time every few weeks. Put your name on the email list and keep hitting "Check Mail" with your credit card in hand. They go fast.

bgautier: grab one when they are available. I was lucky to buy 1 a few months ago and it has become my go to petty. It is the right size for a petty IMO,not too long or short. The tall blade doubles as a mini gyuto for handling smaller product like garlic, shallots etc. The blade is thin and gets scary sharp and the 52100 steel is great stuff! BB

Thanks very much guys, and yes the best bet is to simply get on the email list and try to hop on them when you get the notification. I'm trying my best to get knives out and keep improving with each batch. There aren't enough hours in the day sometimes. :)

Thanks Shaun, I will continue hitting the refresh button on one hand and holding the credit card on the other. On another topic, I know you posted the review on both the Richmond Addict 2 AEB-L Gyuto 240mm and the Richmond Laser Aogami Super 240mm Gyuto. Which one would be your pick for a commercial kitchen environment, lots of prep, interesting cuts of meat, etc. I am looking for a replacement for my 10 year old Shun Ken Onion chef knife, and have narrowed my list to these 2 choices. Thanks in advance.

Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner, read it a day ago but didn't reply. I prefer the Aogami Super Laser over a lot of knives on the market, they are great knives period. :)

Some may say to watch for the thinness behind the edge, but if you successfully used a Ken Onion for a while then toughness should not be an issue for you if you know what to expect.

Thanks again!

Thanks Shaun. I'm glad that's your choice. I didn't wait and ordered the laser. Should get it in 2 more days. Last month we had a fire in our kitchen, and I lost all my knives and equipment (an entire Koobi kit filled to the brim with over 15 years worth of gadgets and specialty knives), so I'm in the process of starting from scratch. Although I'll seriously miss my shun, I think the Richmond will be an excellent replacement. The only one I will seriously miss will be my Shun Ken Onion paring knife. Any recommendations? Also, when will your pettys be available? I check daily but they are always out of stock.
