I use a Spyderco Sharpmaker. It consists of ceramic and diamond-coated rods that are set at 30 or 40 degree angles. I can sharpen a knife to a level of sharpness where I can cut spirals into a sheet of paper held with two fingers. I also know some guys who can sharpen a hunting knife to the point where it can split a strand of hair.
Yang paling minimum yang sebaiknya dibawa
untuk EDC adalah Swiss Army Knife. You’d be surprised how much easier your life
would be with one on your person, every single day. Once you discover that, you
might add on a flashlight, a mini multitool (pictured), and a dedicated pocket
knife (easier and safer to use.)
Everyone has different needs on what to
carry; some carry a pen and notebook, saputangan, a flash disk, or a camera. I
don’t, because I tried for a while and never used them.
But start with a good Swiss Army Knife. I
recommend the Tinker, the Alox Cadet, or the Alox Pioneer.
Dari kecil sih sudah suka dengan pisau, tapi dulu lebih ke multitool seperti Swiss Army Knife. Mulai mendalami folding knives dengan lebih serius sejak 6 tahun yang lalu. My first “serious” folding knife was the CRKT Drifter. Framelock, anodized scales, and 8CR13MoV steel. It’s a budget knife, but it became my gateway to finer knives from brands such as Benchmade, Kershaw, Spyderco, and SOG.
I generally skip any recipe that require
imported charcuterie/cured meats such as andouille or italian sausage, imported
cheeses like gruyere or blue cheese (parmesan or Kraft boleh lah), or wine
(bisa diganti grape juice). I do a good salmon with Jack Daniel’s sauce, but
rarely make it because of the cost. I occasionally buy beef, and when I do it’s
always local. Pork and chicken is cheaper and easier to cook.
My fridge and pantry always has wheat
bread, eggs, carrots, onions, milk, frozen peas, cheese, mayo, seasonal fruit, flour,
a variety of herbs and dry spices.
Stuff I avoid:
Anything out of my budget, as I described
above. As much as I like imported canned goods, it’s also too expensive. I try
avoiding buying anything that is heavily preserved, full of nitrites or salt (but
Ma Ling is an occasional treat), or high in fat (oh bacon is still worth it).
I have none. I’ve bookmarked some instructional
videos on youtube but haven’t gotten around to learning them. But I’ve learned
how to sharpen my kitchen knife on a steel rod, and yes.. I feel kinda badass
whenever I do it.
Hello! Saya lebih mengerti tentang folding
knives dibanding kitchen knives. Kebetulan saya suka masak, dan menggunakan a
Victorinox Fibrox 8 inch chef knife. Saya memilih pisau ini karena menurut
Consumer Report, yang paling “worth it for the price” dan sesuai
budget. And yes, chef knives can easily go into the millions of rupiahs. Yang
pasti, handling-nya beda sih sama pisau2 Ace Hardware. What is it like to use
those 500USD knives? No idea… and my cooking skills don’t justify it. Yet. 🙂
Soal perajin pisau di Indonesia, namanya
Kardin di Hegarmanah di Bandung. Bisa di google. Saya sendiri belum pernah
handle pisaunya, tapi pernah kirim pisau kesana untuk di asah ulang karena
One Sunday morning I was sitting at my table in thin jogging shorts, sharpening one of my knives. It was the Benchmade Barrage, one of my favorites.
Somehow the knife slipped out of my hand,
fell point down, and stabbed my chair… right between my legs. If it landed
even an inch towards me, it would’ve been a very bad experience indeed. And my
chair has the hole to prove it.
To use as a tool. Yes, a tool.. in no way do consider it a weapon. I wouldn’t know what to do with it in a fight. Personally, I have no idea how kamu2 orang get through your day without a pocket knife.
I use mine to open packages, letters,
cereal boxes. To scrape dried glue off my jeans, clean out dirt from my
mountainbike clips, cut loose threads from my shirts. To use as a makeshift
screwdriver, to cut zip ties, to clean fingernails. To pry open windows, to cut
up a big piece of pempek, and to clench between my teeth as I swing from tree
As a homage to a more civilized time when
men were… well, men. And back then, all men carried a pocket knife. It’s my
nod to a tradition that goes back hundreds of years in the history of manhood.
To go knifeless would have been like going pantless today. It was also a rite
of passage for boys to be entrusted a knife by their fathers. It’s a philosophy
of preparedness, of self-sufficiency, and… ah who am I kidding… of
Okay, another question I usually get is…
“Why do you need so many of them?”
