Road to Damascus

That the stunning knives Mrs Prick and the Little Pricks gave me for my birthday are Damascus steel should in no way be taken as a commentary on the Syria thing, but I will note they are far preferable to any kitchenware the Muslim Brotherhood is turning out.

ImageLots of stuff on deck, including the best little Italian restaurant on Parramatta Road and, if you’re lucky, a full-on rant or two.

    It’s bad luck to give knives. You must give them a token dollar so that the gods think you bought them of the little Pricks!

    Always store the knives upside-down in the block, so as to preserve the edge.

    That knife looks good. I’ve been thinking about buying one ever since I dropped in to Scullerymade (http://www.scullerymade.com.au/) several years ago to buy a chef’s knife. They had a beautiful, small (6″/8″?) Damascus Steel chef’s knife on a wood presentation stand for around $1600. The patterns in the steel were absolutely beautiful. Good thing I was looking for a 10″ knife or I could have been tempted 🙂

    Shun knives are some of the best in the world, particularly their damascus steel blades,and a good knife is worth its weight in gold.

    These should become family heirlooms. Look after them.
