Seems that you are keeping some neat stuff for locals only.

Agreed.

This "in store only" business is for the birds. ;)

Sure and it has nothing to do with it being 19 degrees outside either....:viking:

Let's not get too crazy here Jon.

Northern CA > Southern CA

That said, I do plan to visit your store one of these days (which means braving the smog, traffic, and crime). ;)

So Cal > Nor Cal

Hmm I went to college in Angwin up the hill from St. Helena in Napa Valley. Had fun in my hey day raiding Robbie Mondavi Jr.'s cellar with him. And my buddy Brian Power was the son of the owners for the Nut Tree on I80 which was an awesome place for years. Miss some good restaurants in Calistoga. That being said don't miss months of rain. I love it up there and drove to the "city" often. There was more of a crime element in Haight Ashbury, Market, and the Broadway And Kearney area than southern California.

Wait until the Canadians hear you calling Northern CA "cold" Jon. It was 65 degrees here today!

I guess this means I shouldn't get my hopes up for a "Japanese Knife Imports - North." I always just assumed that you and Sara would flee LA for the Bay Area as soon as possible.

Isn't it funny how Bay Area people think like this? Sometimes I worry the Bay will get overcrowded and will start to suck like NYC.

I gave the Mitsuki knives for Xmas last year and didn't save one for myself. The black leather will be perfect.

As much as I love the Bay Area, I know there is one thing that LA has that the Bay Area does not have ...


Great ramen!!! :headbang:

This sounded like crazy talk, so I went on Yelp and to my great surprise, it looks like you may have a point here. There are countless complaints about "not being able to get a good bowl of ramen in the Bay Area." I am not an aficionado of ramen, so I can't say.

But that's it. I don't want to hear another thing that L.A. has over the Bay Area. ;)

Did you carve the heart out of a urinal cake? :outtahere:

BTW, are those letter openers in the "in store" section? Whatever they are, I like.

the hearts are soap... thought they would be cool valentines day gifts for some of our friends.

On the in-store stuff, i guess you'll just have to stop in and see for yourself ;)

If I order a tenugui now can it get here by Tues.? I'm in Portland, Oregon.

JBroida

I'm pretty sure we can do that... i can get it in the mail tomorrow. West coast is pretty quick. However, there is a chance it would arrive by wednesday. We could ship express if you really wanted, but it costs almost as much as the tenugui.

Cool, I'm usually late anyway, so I will take a chance!

That exact knife was (and still is) sitting in my "wishlist" at JKI Salty. You snooze you lose!

Nice shot by the way. I wasn't sure how that wooden stand worked until now.

The Tenugui arrived at 10 AM today, nicely wrapped! A very nice and appreciated V-day gift to my sweety!
Thanks Jon and Sara!
