I can make it, I think. I promise not to embarrass knerd with my sometimes korny humor, or hair-raising tales of his youth.

knyfeknerd
02-21-2013, 08:12 PM
Ok, thanks guys. Let's say 12 to 7pm. I would go a little longer but I've got small kids and it's a school nite.
I'll do some food. I have a large-ish gas grill we can use. You guys are welcome and encouraged to bring food too. My kitchen isn't too fancy, but it works. I'm sure my Pops will bring some form of bread.
Maybe pumbaa could do a dessert???
BYOB
Please bring all things sharp and stoney. I'll try to get a couple extra tables for us to set our junk up on.
FYI, I have cats, dogs and small childrens-If you are allergic, consider yourself warned!
Let me know what food you're bringing by posting in the thread so we don't end up with 500lbs of Mac & Cheese.
I'll PM you guys my addy later.

knyfeknerd
02-21-2013, 08:37 PM
I forgot to add the one and only rule......
....NO NEW YORK YANKEES attire allowed.
If you show up wearing anything Yankees related, you will be denied admittance. I will however be renting out Red Sox attire for a nominal fee.

02-21-2013, 08:54 PM

I can smoke a pork butt if you guys want.

safety that hits harder than linebackers, i was a fan ever since that first description and he went to my nfl team (redskins) so naturally he became my favorite player since his rookie season.

btw, would any of you guys attending the meet be interested in a mac ultimate 10" gyuto? i only used it for a week, but it's too big for me so i never take it out of knife roll. i'm open to possible trades as well.

03-01-2013, 08:31 PM
A little bump.
I've reached out to a lot of guys that I know are in the area. Some have other commitments, just aren't interested or won't reply to my PM's. I'm going to message everyone this weekend with my addy. I know so far Rahimlee is doing Butt, pumbaa with dessert and my pops with bread. I have a large stockpile of venison I'm going to try and use up as well.
Would love to get some more people in!
Thanks and will be in touch this weekend.
Chris

Didn't mean to leave you'all (that's my new NC slang) hanging. Just took on a new roll at the CC...been working long days/ 6 day weeks. Was hoping to get this Sunday off but, yah for me, I'm scheduled to babysit! Hopefully, I'll get settled into my new role, and will be able to attend any future events.
Chris, thanks for the kind invitation; you've become a huge asset to our little community here...

Chris, since you are now a North Carolinian I'll let you in on some of our special spellings--that's ya'll. Sorry you won't be able to make it.

They're droppin' like flies.
It'll be a skeleton crew of a party, but 'tis still a party.
I'm thinking about inviting some random homeless people just to make it interesting.
You win a free knife if you can pick out the vagrants.
See youse 2morrow.

C'mon guys, I'd kill for an opportunity to catch up with some fellow knife nuts! But I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere! Hope those who attend have a great time. Kudos Chris for opening up your home.

pumbaa
03-10-2013, 10:10 AM
Im still coming! Just haven't had time to make a dessert, since work has been crazy. I might pick up some stuff at the store on the way to your house chris and make it there if thats cool. I really have no idea what though.

The BoardSMITH
03-10-2013, 10:36 AM
I really hate I can't make it today. I am swamped with work in the shop now and I will need to work this afternoon in an effort to catch up a little. I hope eveyone has a terrific time. Post photos!

Chris, Thanks for hosting a great day. Great to meet other kitchen knife nuts, eat good food, good discussion, and see some really cool knives that you hadn't gotten to get your mitts on before. It was a great afternoon.

Reede gots the Rader vibe going on. Pumbaa gots the bread and chocolate pr0n on his phone. Chinacats gots some stones (yeah, I said it) and some deadly peppers. Knyfeknerd gots the mini-shop, the nice wife and the kids. Nobody is going to tell about the dancing girls, the goat or the firetruck, right?
