I finally broke down and bought it. [Apr. 5th, 2005|09:06 pm]

For the longest time I've wanted some nice knife guards for my Wusthof knives. I've also wanted a smaller case to carry them in because the one I got from school is rather large and not really that portable. Because I am now starting my internship and have to bring my own knives (just my chef's knife and paring knife), I need some way to transport them with me to work. Since I'll be working at the casino (well Michael Jordan's Steakhouse, but it's in the casino), I don't want to just carry my knives in broad view of everyone, plus I think security would lock me up and take my knives. So, I find myself really needing something that is easier to carry them in and some knife guards.

I chose to go with the Wusthof 8-pocket knife roll and some lovely knife guards - two 4 inch pairing, one 8 inch chef's, one 6 inch chef's, and one 10 inch slicing knife guards. All in all only $45.00 including shipping. Not as bad as I thought it would be!

Jordan's eh? I've been to the Sun...

...and the food is well done at Jordan's. Although I don't like the prices for the sides. I'm not a big fan of Wusthof knives either. I'd almost rather have Dexter-Russells. Old style Henckel's are still the best value for your money. Is your internship just at Jordan's this summer or will you try moving through the whole property? Its professional cuiosity on my part as I "work across the river" and its been my experience that most of you interns can be a decent lot except for making me feel to old from time to time.

Re: Jordan's eh? I've been to the Sun...

I'm doing my internship of 270 hours there. After that I can choose to remain and become a "real" employee (I have to fill out an application and be accepted), or not. I think I'll go with the latter for personal reasons (mostly because I find the work incredibly repetitive and boring since I only do prep, plus I have trouble working the longer days ever since the accident messed up my back again - not to mention the recent troubles getting my goddammed paycheck which is a whole other story). After being in the Navy for 4 years and 7 months, the one thing I can say is that I'm reliable. I always show up for work and very, very, very rarely don't show up or have sick days. In short, I'd love to work elsewhere once my internship is up and I get my certificate (I'm over 1/2 way done now and the school prefers you do your internship in one place - easier for them).
