    I did a sample test with a couple friends of ribeyes. I could only handle a few bites of the Japanese, soooo rich. The American Wagyu was just the right amount of marbling for me.

    I need to find some A4 wagyu. I read there is less marbling, which makes it a little less heavy.

    Wagyu almost always looks gross in pictures. But if you ever get the chance to try some you should, it's quite spectacular.

    If only I could get some...

    Beef tenderloin it is. It’s cheaper in Canada.

    Yet the Japanese have far less cardiovascular related diseases and deaths as opposed to us, the Americans. Wagyu certainly looks and feels very rich in natural fat content and it is so expensive per oz that it will limit most mortals to small samplings to taste / satiate the palate. There are far worse carcinogens in our everyday so-called dietary contents that that fat marbled wagyu!

    Something I read a bit upthread with TinFoil making a comment in test about his chest feeling the pain by just looking at that fatty meat: in my none medical opinion, don't let the fear of heart disease prohibit you from enjoying a little bit of quality dairy products (again: keywords being moderation and quality!). While dietary fat can and will increase the overall levels of cholesterol elevating the dreaded LDL, other factors such as stress, smoking, lack of mobility, gluttony combined with bad diet are far more risky than totally abstaining from consuming red meat, milk, cheese, yogurt and eggs. Game meat is great if you can hunt for it but for most of us urbanites a diet based on purchased game meat is going to be very expensive.

    I've heard rumors that there are deer and such roaming the wild places of Canada ready to be harvested;)

    Man... You guys are killing me:D:thumbsup:

    This thread has been sending me down some rabbit holes lately.

    Even though the chances of 2021 not being a crack baby seem pretty slim, lets just keep our heads down and power through it
    Watches and Wagyu to you all in 2021!

    Just to tempt you some more... We had this last August and it was amazing. We trimmed the outer chunks of fat off and saved it to cook with.

    After watching a few minutes of the old JCVD classic documentary on 2021-Cyborg, I could get behind that combo. I don’t have either of those but I wouldn’t feel naked in the apocalypse with an HDFK.
    On a separate note, did you engrave those tags hanging on that S-Biner?

    That's 2020 for ya, EDC Froggy thermometer...
    Yup, I engrave these stainless tags with valve ID numbers for work so we have a bunch and I also use them as test/sample pieces:thumbsup: (@Nathan the Machinist & Co also have some CPK dog tags;))

    Those are pretty nice, your engraving looks great to me. I’m pretty handy, at least I like to think that I was, but, I’ve never been able to do anything “ creative “ outside of building. I’m much better at destruction :)
