Kitchen equipment discounted tomorrow only

King of Knives, with stores around Australia, is offering 20% off all stocked items, including those already reduced, tomorrow (in-store, not online) only. So if you're in need of kitchen equipment, not just knives, you might want to visit your nearest King of Knives tomorrow to see what bargains can be had.

Signing up to the King of Knives email alerts is also worthwhile: I recently snagged the exquisite RAN three knife plus sharpener professional bundle, regularly $729.80, for $381.90 including postage.

You know you shouldn't mess with a blog when it knows that a King of Knives email alert service even exists.

I do like their shops; an interest in pocket knives that can do 30 different things never seems to entirely go away.

We got a similar deal on a set of Global knives, also Japanese, but not from King of Knives.

Anyone thinking of Global Knives, beware. They are good knives, no doubt about that, but your normal knife sharpening equipment is no good. The instructions recommend ceramic sharpening stone and steel

A ceramic steel from the King of Knives is around $50.

My $20 cleaver from the Chinese shop holds its edge just fine. It's made from one piece of stainless steel and it even handles the dishwasher unlike some of my "designer" knives. To keep it keen the best sharpener I ever got was from the $2 shop - it consists of about a dozen interleaved washers. Some metal gets shaved off your blade, but even after 5 or 6 years of near-daily use there's not any noticeable difference. Knives, especially at full price, are a rip-off.

Yes, Global knives look fashionable and are good to handle, but they are a tad "precious".
