    Hi guys, I'm finishing a new knife today and I was wondering if you could help me name it. I'm thinking I need a manly name that starts with C, and also I am wondering if it's likely that an army cook would also hold a rank starting with C, and what that rank might be?

    Thanks, and I'll be sure to send a shout out in my thread to respondents whose suggestions I end up using.

    Cheers!

    Corporal Clayton?

    Chef's are enlisted, so Corporal is a probable rank.

    92G is a Culinary Specialist
    92G20 Culinary Operations Sergeant

    So maybe something like a COS-92 in ZDP 189 with limited runs in San Mai :D:D

    I believe in the navy a cook can achieve the rank of chief petty officer aka cpo.

    Corporal would work... captain is a “c” as well but the captain over a DFAC would be running a support company as the commander and not be involved at all in the operations beyond scheduling training or coordinating for special events.
    As for a “manly” name, you need to go with a surname, no one calls people by their first name after their rank.

    I submit: “Corporal Colson”. Two “c”s rolls off the tongue better.

    Actually Navy Culinary Specialists (CS), can achieve the rank of Master Chief (MCPO) and for that rate/rank it would be annotated CSCM :)

    You could have leaned on the traditional French Brigade de Cuisine kitchen hierarchy for inspiration. That's based on military structures/roles etc.

    Say, Chef de Cuisine Colin. Sous Chef Clive. Chef de Partie Bob.

    Or just used Captain Carrot instead.

    Either way, an opportunity may have been missed.
