I cut steak with a steak knife and cut open boxes containing new pocket knives with my pocket knife. Maybe I’m doing it wrong.
Yes...Yes, you are.I cut steak with a steak knife and cut open boxes containing new pocket knives with my pocket knife. Maybe I’m doing it wrong.
Please be aware that it is not recommended to use our knives to cut food on the plate, as the knife is likely to cut the plate, and simultaneously cause damage to the knife. You cannot cut ceramic or iron with this knife.
Get yourself a can of Ballistol and blast out the inside and pivot once in a while following up with compressed air then dry it well, re-lube pivot and it should be more than ready to go to dinner again.
I do not use my regular EDC knives as cutlery, but if I go out to have a steak, I pocket one of my Laguioles. Beats the dull restaurant knives.
If it gets dull, I touch up the edge. No big deal.
I made the mistake of chopping some vegetables on a glass board with my Benchmade Bugout a few months ago. I was at a VRBO and the kitchen knives they had were garbage so I wisely busted out my handy pocket knife.... really dulled (rolled) the edge within a couple minutes and without any sharpening tools I could fix it. I was bummed to be walking around with a dull knife for a week.
Which maker made your Laguiole? I'm in the market for one but there's so many manufacturers it's making my head spin.
