finally got some good pho, on the way home from work, nothing nearby, but it's there at least

have to drive to Cambridge for good Ramen, but it's authentic Japanese style and sooo good.

lots of good food scattered around, but you have to find it

or those people that feel a Fiskars Splitting Axe "isn't enough", there's always the Fiskars IsoCore Maul

mini-review

note the new hammers, including the SLEDGE HAMMER - that looks like a specialty rock splitter if i ever saw one :D

That Fiskars maul may just earn a place in my garage. I love the splitting axe, but I do a lot of wood splitting with an 8lb maul (when I can sneak it out of my dad's place).

Anyone have a recommendation for a paring knife that would go well with the Becker kitchen knife set? I'd really like to find one with good grip and functionality like the rest of the set.

What's your budget? :D

I like the Henckles 4-star 4" paring knife lots. The 3" is good, but too short to cut all the way through an apple or pear.

Budget is kind of flexible. When it comes to steel, I will pay for a good tool on the assumption I'll use it until it's been sharpened into a toothpick. However, I'm probably not looking to spend big on this, unless I come across a custom that really strikes my fancy. Maybe $50 ish tops for a manufactured knife. There's room to play there, though.

You can get a very good factory paring knife for $50. Custom is more like $150.

My current go to paring knife is a Magua.

No, but mostly because I haven't tried.

Where's your initiative, man? Don't you know that only the strong survive? That when the going gets tough, the tough get donuts? That yesterday, pi day, was named after my Aunt Jenny's rhubarb pie? That 2+2=5 because that's where the money is? That Bladite spelled backwards it Etidalb? That leprechauns are real and they sometimes attack Murph in his sleep? Think about all these things and then try, try, try!

Yep, since late last night. I started south on I-95 intended to turn west in Virginia, but got lost on the 404.

Just keep turning left. You'll get back to where you started eventually.
