Hi guys,
I was thinking to go to Sydney cutlers expo in August 23rd or most possibly 24th . I thought to pm some members to come with me but I would love the idea of doing a gathering along same time , if any of knife nuts in down under , especially in Nsw are up for it , let me know. I am surer we can arrange something

I think Bill plans to have around 20 knives on his table, mostly kitchen stuff and a few Hunters/ Bowies

Anyone know a sushi place with a private room? Hana Ju-rin (crows nest) has a private room for around 8-10 ppl they also offer Kaiseki which might be cool depending on everyone's budget.

Do you think it's possible to convince a certain mr. Burke to swing by? That would be cool.

just a side note for people who is still thinking: there will be a shig kitaeji cleaver and possibly chanop's kitaeji western gyuto on the plates. and I may have something even more exciting coming as well:D

Will you be swinging by brisbane ?

Guys: this thread is making me jealous!! If I could I would road trip down. Damn family / work commitments getting in the way of a knife nut gathering ;)

We have less than 2 weeks left guys, if we are going to have a private room in any restaurant it is time to book , time to select venue maybe? Any suggestions are welcome, doesn't have to be sushi as long as food is good

Thank you for attending guys, I wish we gotten pictures of sushi instead of devouring first . We had lot of the nearby tables, servers and restaurants chefs looking at us concerned with so many knives on the table, at one point we had 4-5 wa shigs ,some western shigs kitaeji and Kasumi , Kato kikuryu, 2 , yoshikanes , Marko Damascus and some more knives out :p
Hope to have a bigger attendance next year , it was nice to meet you all

P.s: Huw, koji told you hi, his sushi was good , once we were done he came to the table and checked some knives out too

Next time, it should be a barbi at someone's place with tons of gidgee charcoal as the main heat source.
