In the market for a new chef knife. Budget is $200 or less. 8 inch. I've been looking around Korin, and a few are standing out to me. http://korin.com/Misono-UX10-Gyutou_3?sc=27&category=280073 http://korin.com/Togiharu-Hammered-Damascus-Gyutou?sc=27&category=280059 http://korin.com/Masamoto-VG-Gyutou?sc=27&category=280096 http://korin.com/Togiharu-Inox-Steel-Gyutou?sc=27&category=280054 Opinions? Other recommendations are welcome. Thanks!
Looking to buy a pair of the Herring's Froswick boots, which are made by Trickers. Does anyone have sizing advice? I usually wear a 9.5D in Allen Edmonds. I've heard the boots are quite spacious and maybe I should size down to a 8.5. http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=4502 Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The only thing that I notices it that it's a tiny bit more work to put it on– kind of like putting on a sport coat.
Looking to buy a Bedale. Can't decide if I want the 38 or 40. The 38 is definitely more fitting, while the 40 is definitely roomier and easier to put on. I had on a undershirt, chambray, and a wool sweater. Which, is probably the most I'd wear under it. Thoughts/ opinions? 38 40
Yeah, I have some family members who get prints from walmart/ walgreens and they look pretty terrible. I went through Mpix and they look amazing.
Same here. Etsy has some great stuff! And to just add to how impressive it is, it's a one man shop.
Yeah, I like all of the colors as well. However, my favorite color is green... Actually it was $240 - expensive, but when you compare it to the mass produced stuff out there, it's a good deal in my opinion.I can't say that there is anything I don't like. I mean, sure it would be nice to have it fit an 8.5x11 sheet, but I love the form factor of this one. Plus, you can always just fold your papers in half and slip it in-between like a folder.Let me know if you want better...
So I love the Rhodia pads--especially the No. 16. Keegan from One Star Leather ended up making one to fit the No. 16, as many people had requested it. I had mine made with Herman Oak Bridle leather on the inside, and Green Horween chromexcel on the outside. Yes--I paid a pretty penny for this thing, but its so nice, not to mention everything is done by hand. The pictures don't do it justice...
Do you guys get your pictures printed? I found thats it's nice being able to pull out a tangible photo to look at. If so, what size would you get? 4x6, 5x7, or 8x10?
Problem I've found with most of the big brand options is that they are sooo busy, with 20 pockets, usually made of crappy leather, and a zipper is just one more thing to break.
