Its really hard to show the action of a knife on meat or game prep. Its all in the "feel".

Here is the PFK cutting through a thick steak

That will mean nothing - but to the chefs and game dressers amongst you - this line will mean more

Its like cutting with a laser

Tomorrow, itll be jerky. :D

Stu doesn't like my jerky though ;)

Aaah - I thought the last batch was a bit "bland" so I added extra fresh chilli, some home grown liquidised garlic and a shot of peri peri this time.

I'm sure you wouldn't like it.......

Swan Vesta size Stu - I put the picture up bigger than lifesize or it was impossible to see the 4th full circle of wood in the match head size ;) (there are 5 yes but one is a little wider than the match head)

I am so looking forward to an F1 doing that Mr Pickett :D

Well Jon, I have no carrots to do right now, but I plan to do a batch of strawberries and mango tomorrow (instead of the pineapple :D). Strawberry for fine slicing should be interesting

Carrots are hard to cut with a scandi. I find, the f1 is better but only just....They tend to tear their way through it. Soft fruit is easy though...

Well, clearly strawberries didn't pose much of a problem for the knife, but the task was to slice cleanly without pushing through the flesh

Heres the "action shot"

and the finished product

As you can see - lovely even slices, no tearing at all. Mango being a firm fleshed fruit was simplicity itself!

Cutting up these acidic things really does add marks and stains (call it patina if you want to be posh) to the blade

Not a great photo but its certainly no "showpiece" now :eek:

Well, if you want one that bad woodwalker, you can always ask stu for one to fill that hole :)

I'm not going to a group buy on the PFKs but I'm happy for anyone who really wants one to talk to stu - they can keep theirs all polished and shiny :D
