Id say Pac salt too. Wont rust, easy to wash out and just throw in the drawer. No worries.
I find the Military to be very useful for food prep (though a nice kitchen knife is better). The long blade and FFG makes for great slicing, and the flat spine means you can flip it over and use it to slide what you've chopped or cut neatly off the cutting board.
The Caly 3.5 is a lime slicing machine.
got an orange military for the job.... figured if im gonna carry a milli at work ill get the brightest one for use in front of non knife people.
The Barong would also fit the bill nicely.
Personally I keep returning to my FFG Pacific Salt whenever kitchen duty calls (pictured below in good company)
With all my love to Spyderco folders none of the can outperform thin FFG nicely made Japanese kitchen knives. Fortunately I have Yang, K05, K04, and paring knife. I wish I bought Santoku and Homemaker, when they were available.
Where did you get that Salt in FFG? Or was it done as a coustom job? I'd like to have that treatment done to mine.
custom mod, done by knifemaker and artist Matei Campan
Thank you for the link. Some amazing work.
Without question the best Spyderco's for food prep are the VG-10 Yin and Yang. I'm surprised so few thought so too. These are a must in any Spydie Fan's kitchen.
You forgot about the little fact that's darn nearly impossible to find one today.
true, but that's only because they were discontinued after too few people bought them.
IIRC Sal has mentioned the possibility of doing more kitchen knives at some point in the future. I'd really like to see that (and a byrd fixed blade, but that's a topic for another thread)
EDIT: I found the post where Sal was talking about making more kitchen knives
I thought that h1 COULDNT be ffg?? and my vote if for ffg endura. you can buy all the colors and coordinate with your outfit. hahaha
I frequently use the Stretch 2 in VG 10 which is a great design for food prep, the Delica 4 ffg can be used for smaller prep.
I used my mule m390 and my military both yesterday. Its nice to have the reach of the military. So i would probably pick the milli over the mule. Both get the job done very well.
Any Lum Chinese is the best for my food prep
Others: Perrin Bowie (really), FFg Endura, Any Caly, and Delica
All tested in my kitchen.
The fixed blade temperance slices like a demon,but my wife likes the BG42 military I reprofiled.When she first tried it she said that knife is so sharp its dangerous.
My Mrs just loves the VG-10 Spyderco Moran, very sharp and light in the hands. Its shaves after a few strokes on the Ultra fine rods when its a little dull.
I put an Aqua Salt in my kitchen, and my wife's never given it back. Best "EDK" (every-day-kitchen) blade ever `;-)
