None of my Spydies slices apples so good as Opinel, therefore I personally use Opinel No. 8.
Granny Smiths for me too. I have one for an afternoon after lunch snack at work but I never use a knife.
Peter, you need a KO5.

That's really interesting that New York State is the second biggest apple producer in the USA. Actually it doesn't surprise me in some ways because I spent a lot of time in the western part of New York state close to Jamestown. When you get away from New York City that state is absolutely beautiful and has about 4 mountain ranges and a lot of lakes and streams and great wooded forests. I wonder if the well known nick name they call New York City ( The Big Apple) came about because of their awesome apple production They also have a lot of wine vineyards and they are probably second only to Wisconsin in dairy farms too. And few people even have a clue as to how awesome of a state New York is. I just don't like the long winters up there. But I love it in the Spring & Summer. New York state is also great for trout fishing as well. That state is truly a well hidden secret in many ways.bearfacedkiller wrote: ↑Tue Apr 24, 2018 11:50 amI eat a lot of apples. I usually buy granny smiths because I like my apples crisp and tart and they are consistently and reliably both and they always seem to be in good shape. I also like pink ladies and honeycrisp.
I spent a lot of my life living in northern New York. Many do not know that NY is the second biggest producer of apples in the US after Washington. Many apple varieties are from NY like Rome, Cortland, and Empire. Cortland and Rome are towns in NY which have apples named after them. Where I grew up apples got really affordable in the fall. I have purchased 100 pound bags of baking apples (with blemishes) for $25 and canned a boatload of apple pie filling. Yum!
