Good, sharp knives dont have to be expensive.



Slightly more expensive steel:

Ceramic is suuuuper insanely sharp and holds an edge for a very, very, long time if treated properly. It is however possible to break the blade with a sharp impact or drop. Not really feasible to sharpen at home. Kyocera does offer free lifetime sharpening if you pay shipping though.

Steel is nice because it's easy to sharpen at home with a little practice. I actually really enjoy sharpening my steel knives now that i am comfortable with the process. It's very zen. You'll just need a decent water or oilstone and some patience to learn.

This inspired me to look more into markers for shading and color. I do use watercolors relatively frequently, but get lazy and don't feel like getting my whole set-up out just for sketching. Does anyone have experience with Tombow and the quality?

Definitely not going to drop money on Copics/Prismacolor at first, but any budget-friendly artist markers would be great. My main goal is getting a better grasp on tones/shading rather than a large variety of colors.

This video has some great info:

And there's also a documentary about him:

He also has a series on his channel called "Beginnings" that talks a lot about his getting started. He is such a wonderful calm person.

The guy has a book, for anybody who's interested in making one of these things themselves. It's actually quite good. Very detailed. Of course, I have yet to try making one myself, so I won't comment on whether it's as easy (ha!) as he makes it look...

Interesting article, although the price tag does not seem that outrageous when you factor in the 3 lenses that are in the package.
From the article, the package includes:

  • A Leica MP-9, Veau Swift covered body ($7000)

  • A Leica Summicron-M 28 mm f/ 2 ASPH ($4300)

  • A Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH ($11000)

  • A Leica APO-Summicron-M 90 mm f/ 2 ASPH ($4000)

    That's $27,000 altogether, not to mention that these are limited editions (only 100 made). It's definitely a collector's item but the article seemed a bit unfair. Leica's have been known to be legendary cameras for pro photographers for generations and have amazing resale values!

Get a cheap food grade kevlar glove on Amazon! They are not very expensive at all and super duper helpful in not getting hurt with a mandoline.

OK, but a Lansky sharpening set costs about $25, doesn't require cutting and gluing sandpaper to sticks, is probably easier than this and controls the edge angle accurately.

Read his autobiography. It's great. People talk about how he comes into their restaurants and checks the trash first to see how much they are wasting and the book pretty much tells you it's from his upbringing through WWII.

Also goes into how he cooked for Charles De Gaulle (iirc) and how he was working for Howard Johnson's in the US.

america's test kitchen (great cooking show where they try stuff out and come up with practical suggestions instead of just crazy complicated shit.) recommends a number of victorinox fibrox knives. i think i have the chefs and paring knives and i love them.

You can read his book, One Man's Wilderness. I loved it. It's a compilation of his journal entries from when he was in Alaska.

His name is Dan Reeder. He has several books available on making "Screamers" - 1, 2, 3, and a couple more. His website can be found here. He's even a redditor and has popped up in a few threads. I posted something about how much of an impact his books had on me growing up and he replied to my post. Nice guy.

The only proper response to this is "then sharpen your knife."

If your knife is fucked, or you never invested in a halfway decent knife before, shop around and pick up a Victorinox chef knife.

From my experience, this is the the commercial kitchen workhorse in the US. It holds an edge if you treat it well, has a plastic handle and no crevices that might be hard to clean, and is an excellent choice for mid level cooks.

Try out the Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Markers. They are about 1/5 the cost and still give most of the benefits. As for the white pen used at the end, it's a Uniball Signo Broad in White. Any art store should have this in your area for around the same price. Try them out and then you can see about upgrading (slowly) in the future.

Here's another one. Not about food, but another tip-to-tip exploration of Japan. If I ever plan a trip I'm going to re-read this and mark up a map.

One man's wilderness - an Alaskan odyssy is tremendous. It's not written like a story though. Dick wrote in a journal everyday as part of his work for the national park service documenting things like temperature and snow pack depth. He would also document animals and their migration patterns. This book is excerpts from those journals and put together in chronological order, a highlights if you will.

Really really good read.

Under the "frequently bought together" links further down is a set of 5 items, 3 of which he demonstrated.

He has a cookbook: Essential Pepin that I got my boyfriend last Christmas. The recipes are mostly straightforward and I've eaten gourmet French food every eek for nearly a year now.

u/buddythegreat · 9 pointsr/ArtisanVideos

this is a cheap version of his set up.

Or just buy cut resistant gloves. I have a pair, and I never use a mandolin without it.

u/Fey_fox · 2 pointsr/ArtisanVideos

there is a section in this book that discusses some of them. You can find it in the front, it goes through many different pigment types and whether or not they are in production anymore and if not, why and what replaced it. It's not all the pigments of course. Most go out of production because that mineral can't be found anymore, that insect or plant has died out, the practices to make it are unethical or too costly, or it aged poorly.

The book is about a lot more than that. If you are looking to grow as a painter and want to understand it's nature, it's a good book to pick up.

"Dune" is one of the best science fiction books ever written. It's by Frank Herbert, and is quite amazing. If you are a reader, I can't suggest it enough. They have made a few movies out of it, most notably one with Sting, but they completely suck ass.
