I'm still alive and kicking but it's been awhile since I've been on any knife sites. There are lots of familiar people on this very nice site so I think I'll use it as my main kitchen cutlery reference vehicle. The inventory includes around 20 J knives plus 4 or 5 from US bladesmiths as well as a ton of sharpening equipment but you can never have enough of that stuff, right? :happymug:

Retirement from the airlines has been good to me but I finally got a little bored so I expanded on another of my hobbies, video calibration. I calibrate projectors and flat panel TVs so the owner can see what the director intended instead of the crappy pictures as set up by the factories. I'm one of four THX Certified Level II Video Calibrators in the state of Florida and the only one in Wisconsin where I spend my summers. I work it in around my more important golf and fishing schedules.

Welcome!

I calibrate my car radio all the time. I turn the bass on 5, the treble on 7, and fade the speakers partially to the back where they carry more bass. I also listen to "For What It's Worth" on the left channel speaker only so I can hear the crazy guy doing backup. I'm sure that's a lot like what you do.

Right on, plus a few thousand in software, a few more in meters, and a few more in study and experience. :lol2:

Nice to see you here Buzz.

For those of you who don't know Buzz, he is a certified knife nut as well as a class "A" sharpener and will fit in well here.

Hey, bring some more warm weather when you come back to Sconny. We were starting to get spoiled and it is turning into spring again.
