There's so many recipes out there to make your own too. My wife got me into it as she isn't Chinese and she prefers Northern and Western Chinese dishes over my Cantonese heritage's food. So I started learning how to make stuff like DanDan noodles for fun. At the end of the day though, I don't know if making the stuff by hand is worth the effort versus all of the delicious versions in stores.
That's funny, I guess VG10 can patina. I literally will cut anything with that tiny Baby Jess Horn. At first I didn't like that blade all that much but then it matched one that was gifted to me a few years back by a BF member (you know who) that has been in my brother's rotation for a while now. I bought one back but then sold that full size one again after it being too similar to a Caly 3. This little guy though changed my entire EDC collection. I got rid of all of my Milli's for example that were never carried. All of my tiny EDC's get used all the time though. Cuts anything from packaging to boxes to zip ties! But this reminds me, I probably do need to clean the blade every once in a while, lol.
Agreed, I've watched some awesome videos on how to make the stuff but I just buy it at the asian market for $5 and it's usually better than I can make. My wife is Cambodian and she has taught me many different recipes. Asia is an amazing place culinarily.
