2013 East Coast Gathering/ECG

Sunday, June 2nd 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Holland, Bucks County, PA
https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&r...-8&sa=N&tab=wl

Iíll supply food, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages

There are beds and sofas for at least eight and plenty of room on the floor for people who need to spend the night

There will be tables for showing your knives and demonstrations

Confirm attendance with # of people on this thread

PM me for the address, directions, coordinating food and any questions.

We had a great turnout last year. Professional chefs, home cooks and collectors traveled from as far as New England and South Carolina. They brought incredible knives and fantastic food. Theory demonstrated breaking down salmon.

The ECG is a chance to meet the people on KKF and talk every aspect of knives.

Attend and make this year even better

I'm a maybe also but it would increase my chances if we carpooled up and back, splitting the gas costs is a big help. I too want to make it a one day thing, with the thought of leaving by around 6pm.

Bumping this thread as the ECG is a month away. Hoping matrud, Dave Martell, Jim, Andrew H (this guy's a 6'8" teenager, nice as could be) and Butch Harner will make it.

I have a few knives to trade or sell so bring your wares.

I hate to admit if but if my wife will let me go, I'm in. With the Caps making the playoffs I use up a lot of my points going to the games!

I know we are talking a day trip but since I won't be bringing any knives (mine are not worth bringing) I've got some killer wines I can bring.

This batch of brandy is incredibly spicy. The year the peppers were harvested was particularly hot. The hotter the temp outside the hotter the peppers will be inside. I will see if I can take some of the sting out.

Knyfe -- make it up to NoVa, and you can drive up and back with me. Will be a same-day trip, though. I'd offer you a room, but my M-I-L is arriving the day before (plus the baby pretty much guarantees there is very little sleep at night).

Ok, so far it's looking like I'm still able to go. But I'm still on the maybe side for now. My plan is to make it a day trip, it is only 3 hours away after all. That said, I'm wondering if anybody else here is interested in tagging along. I live right outside Baltimore beltway, so if anybody else in the area that's planning on going (day tripping) let me know. I can drive or tag along plus throw down $ for gas/bev/foods. Although, the idea of open road, solitude and Pearl Jam/the Verve sounds pretty awesome....

Looks like a great time. Wish I could have made it. Instead I played food for 250 drunks at a redneck wedding, lol. Should've called in sick

I left a couple of faceless ones for fish purposes. Let me know if this works for you. My apologies. Thanks to Craig and great to see some people again and a few new faces.

Hats off to Craig and his wife for their generous hospitality. Really enjoyed the opportunity meeting several of the guys from this forum. Thanks to WildBoar for the lift up to Holland, and the great baby advice.
Johnny, Son and Rick, that table you guys shared was a straight candy shop of what this forum has to offer, A to Z. Seth, your tour through Shig City was phenomenal. Butch, dig that Tuna sword, and stunning work all around!
Too many highlights for this newcomer to list, but I will mention the Million layer Damascus from Randy, prob the sharpest edge there. The Damascus ladle and stand was nothing shy of groovy, and I have a new found love for the Hiromoto AS 300 suji (for which I now have a WTB thread started) and I'm starting a new search for a good affordable deba.

Many thanks to all there for making my sous (420layers...) and I feel welcome. Cheers!

Thanks to Craig for hosting it again. That grouper was fantastic.

Thanks Seth for your family's hospitality and kindness in hosting this event. And thanks for the duck discussion. I got to match up some faces with the names for the first time. It's always enlightening for me to talk with pros about their knives

Unfortunately we had to book back before you made it Marko, damn it. But a couple of us were given a short hallpass by the wives sheikhs they were home with the babies.
I really wanted to see those knives you were bringing. Anybody get any pics or pick one up? Bah, next time!

I ended up running out of time, but I brought 3 gyutos, 245mm with saya and 255mm (saya in works), one 180mm gyuto and one 250mm suji to check out. The other knives that I brought along, were in blank form (heattreated, profiled but not ground), and all one can see in them is damascus pattern and profiles. None of the knives were for sale (at this time).

The board I brought, went to poitonboy, as did the walnut magnetic strip and the walnut base for DMT.

I will start on the handles and will offer the 245mm chevron 52100 koa set and 255mm 52100 cocobolo/walnut set on my subforum within days. Sujis will follow, but nor right away.
