    Default My Kitchen Cutlery

    Here are my kitchen knives. As you can see I really dig Henckels Four Star.


    We live in a one room house with windows for walls. Although it is nice to look outside at the natural surroundings, the house presented some challenges in the storage department. I designed systems to suspend alot of stuff from the overhead.



    Here is what the rack looks like stowed:

    I like what you did with the storage. I have many of the Henkles that you have and really like them. I also have a Martin Yan Cleaver that is a little less bulky than most and I use a lot. I have been meaning to ask, what camera are you using? Nice photos.

    Thanks. The digital camera I use is a Kodak DX6490. However most of my artsy photos are shot with a Nikon N90S 35mm SLR. I am a dinosaur. I still shoot film.

    Thanks!

    The house is post and beam with two bathrooms and two lofts for sleeping. It has a 14 foot high ceiling which is why I was able to put a suspension bridge ten feet above the living room floor for Mr. Toes.

    We have windos all around so the light is very welcoming. Here's the other part of the kitchen:

    It is located on an 80 acre farm with a 300 foot mountain and seven miles of trails. We are very lucky to have been renting the place for the last six years. It's like living in a park. The Pootatuck River flows through our back yard so we have domestic ducks. Here's a video about them:



    I have some shots of the outside I will post when I find them. However you can check out the website of the farm where we live:

    That's awesome and give me a slight "Lost in the wild" feeling, except with out the ending . I'll have to show my wife the pictures when she wakes. Thanks for sharing.

    And then the handle slips out of your hands, the door swings open and the baby crawling just in front of you (or Mr Toes if you don't have toddlers) is impaled by a dozen knives.

    I don't think my wife would go for this idea.
    The knives might stick to it because they weight less, but have you ever tested if hose cleavers keep hanging if that door swings open?

    I don't mean to criticise. It is just that this was the first thing I thought of when I saw your solution. With a 3 year old and a 9 month year old, we always think about the location of sharp things.
