    Nessmuk made quick work of pork belly


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I had a big piece of pork belly that I needed to cut into pieces to make chicharron for the 4 of July dinner and decided to use JK Nessmuk since I tuned its edge in the morning.
    My wife said " you better cut that before I get to go into the kitchen" and it took me less that 10 minutes to slice and cut into bite size chicharron pieces.
    Wife thought she was going to have a long break but it did not pan out that way. Cutting through the thick pork skin with the thick layer of fat was too easy for Ness .

    The Nessmuk design excells at kitchen duty, I believe that was one of the ideas behind the design, use in the camp kitchen.

    The Nessmuk is one of my all time favorite designs. If you can find a better butcher knife I'll be surprised.
    Where are the pictures?
    Rest in peace Maniacal Pete. I wish I could have done more.

    I like to use my JK's in the kitchen (galley?) -

    I have learned that I like thinner knives for that work - but the thicker ones, like Mack's Cutlass, work well when designed with a good tip and some belly, like the Nessmuck (although the Nessmuck lacks that lovely clip point style...)

    I look forward to your pictures of your work with the 'muck - I sometimes press my wife into being the photographer when I am doing my dirty work with my knives.

    best
