It sucks a bit that this is 5 days after my vacation, would have been fun to attend but ye olde bank account will scream -"insufficient funds, now get back to work you lazy piece of shait". :(


Let's hope you can plan an event like this in the fall or something. :)

maxim

I will also say that class is totally free os charge ( i got some questions about that )

Also this time we go more in détail of polishing and how Jnats work, use of different Naguras.
Fingerstones, use of them. How to get your Jnat last longer and so on.

it has nothing to do with the sharpening class but here is the hotel we will have the class :D so if you havn´t used all your money you can always go to the Casino.

like last time we will use the kitchen for Maxim to teach and show.

i hope the link wont break any rules here on forum

I have just returned back from the event, and thought I would take this opportunity to thank all the attendees for a most excellent time spent at Marienlysk Hotel in Helsingør.

A special thanks to Maksim and Niclas and all the wonderful staff that catered to us while we were geeking out out over the hones.

It was a great meet-up, with tons of great products, awesome information and education, and most importantly, a wonderful group of people.

I will most definitely be back next time;)

Yes.
Honestly I dont think we can thank them enough, It really really was played very well.
Special thank you to the head chef. The hospitality was amazing. There was plenty of food and drink and fresh coffee all the time and Niclas going behind you shouting "take a beer! take a soda! Eat more! Take a sausage! You want some mustard?!?!" Very very nice and welcoming.

And to Maksim. Thanks man for your effort. Bringing all the stuff and giving some away for free oh and I got a tshirt! :) And the handle installment and so on. Amazing.

And to Bjørnar, amazing collection and very huge knowledge. You know your stuff! And the genuity and generosity you dont find so often.

And actually to all the rest also, for building the atmosfere of "stone fever" :fanning:

Twistington
06-27-2012, 06:08 AM
I don't know how I should put this in words, but something I texted Niclas a few hours ago was that these few days of knife nerding and stone fondelig has been more relaxing than any four week vacation i have had the last years.

So to summarize this:

I guess Niclas was trying to stuff us with so much calories that if the kitchen should run out of foie gras during these days a random knut could feed the entire restaurant.

Maksim will have a piece of my salary in a not so distant future, there was so many things I wanted to take home but due to some sort of miracle I could hold back on the shopping and settled for 4 knives and 2 stones, Kato 240mm gyuto, Maksims old 240mm gyuto in unknow pm-steel(too cheap not to buy), two practice knives just for fun, Beston 500 and a JNS 6K and I THINK these will be my last syntetics... and ofc the free t-shirt! :)

One of the funnies moments during the event was when me and Bienek didn't believe Maksim that the Kato would cut so well as it did... i guess 5-year olds on x-mas looks sad comparing to how we must have looked when we gave it a try at every veggie they could bring from the kitchen. :D

I would like to end this post with a HUGE shout-ut to all who attended the event, I hope you guys had as fun as I had and I will see you all next time!

From a hotelroom in Marienlyst, written on my phone 45mins before my journey home begins i give this event 5/5. :)

well.....last sharpening geek kicked out :) Twistington (Dan) sent away safe and good. what a great guy, he lapped all my stones before he left, that´s like when you have overnight guests and they clean your house before they leave, while you are at work :D

i would like to thank you all for participate and sharing all your knowledge, so great to see you all sharpening, honning, polishing and rehandle. also sharing all your secrets :)
Thank you again Maxim for letting us all try so many knives and stones, teaching my staff to be better sharpeners :D my chefs enjoyed having you all here at the hotel. and not least the great prices. i almost ended up having two Yoshikane SKD 240 suji, if it wasn´t for my chef buying it, i would have bought that for 80$ :D

great to see the pro-shaver/sharpener Birnando (what a collection of razors, wauw) to take the time and patience to teach another member the way to use a stone and get the knife sharp, or Bienik to carry 30kg of books just to show me some of his favorite chefs and dishes :D he did a marathon session with the knife, what a patience and willpower. if we havn´t stopped him and sent him home, he would have been there polishing and sharpening :)

thank you all for the kind words :) and we couldn´t send you home to your wives and girlfriends skinny and thin "rigeligt med smør". so i´m glad you enjoyed the food and beverage. we all enjoyed having you as guests and this was not last time for sure. looking forward to see you all again, next time we have to add another day so i have the time to talk to you all, the time was just not enough.

you are all welcome to come by my work anytime if you are in the neighbourhood or want to have a minibreak. the stones are ready.

most of the pictures have already been shown but i promissed to post some pictures.

Great event.

This time there were more people. Great atmosphere, everybody there, was knife/stone-lover, what´s not to like about such an event :-)?? Really really nice to meet other people who share my interest, besides the internet, I find it difficult really getting into the topics that can easily be discussed in such a crowd (stones, japanese tools, knives, woodworking).
Maksim is, as always great with his help and wise words. So it is a real treat being at his events, even though I was only there for some hours.
Niclas is a real friendly chap and the whole places has a real pleasent vibe to it.

Great with the early heads up in November Maksim. This time I can take a day off and be there from the beginning insted of showing up after work many hours to late.

Many thanks to everybody involved. Looking forward to the next time (even though it ends up costing me a lot of hard earned danish currency!!!)
