Iron chef, what should this show do next?

So we just had the Tournament champions show, we've had grudge matches, we had other iron chef from around the world and of course the next iron chef show. So what should they do next? One idea is have the originals Japanese iron chef come battle the ICA or have a world IC completion or have the top ten Mitchlen star restaurant chefs come battle for charity.

What do you think IC should do next?

I don't like it. I would never buy it. But if it's in front of me I can't stop eating it.

Popcorn at the movie Theater although I do not intend to buy it before the movie but whenever I get there and someone offer to buy it or split a bag well you know the rest. I also have a Technique for fitting up the bag(Half popcorn then butter and the other half of popcorn and more butter)

Knife gift for professional cook

I have seen the cck Chinese slicer in china town in vancouver because I live 20 block from there, and only for $35.

@ chem, my FUJIWARA FKH Series (High Carbon Steel) petty has not impress me so far. It is a very low quality carbon steel, on my first use it stained the blade and won't clean off. I should have put another $30 in and bought something with a bit more quality. I will post more of an update as time goes by on this knife.

Just went to the thrift shop and pick up this knife (picture below) it's marked manoir craft molybdenum steel Japan. It's has good weight and balance.

My question is have you heard of this knife brand and what style is the knife?

Why can't I sharpen my knife like a factory edge

So just go my Hiromoto AS and it's one bad ass knife much sharper factory edge than my Fujiwara High Carbon petty ( and way better build quality ) this knife feels like a knife if you know what i mean. In time and practice I will get better in sharpening, and I most likely will get another stone(3000 or 4000 grit) but for now practice practice practice

Why can't I sharpen my knife like a factory edge

So I have a 1000 grit Whetstone which I soak for 10-20 mins in water to get all the air out. I lay down a dam cloth so the stone wont move, then I proceed to sharpen. To sharpren I hold the knife edge at a 15 degree angle and with my three middle fingers starting in the middle of the knife push it back and forth and equal number of times. As i move up and down the knife edge i check part that im sharpening to make sure it matches the whole length if the knife edge. then i turn it over and repeat the process on the other side of the knife. Now I think it pretty sharp but todat I just received my Fujiwara High Carbon Steel FKH-2 Petty 150mm and holly shit that is a sharp knife make my old knife seem dull. So my question is what am I doing wrong and can I achieve this lever of factory sharpness at home?
