Hello everyone!

My name is Mari, I will be writing as a vendor on behalf of Korin Japanese Trading in NYC. I am brand new to this forum and I am still trying to navigate myself around. I hope to make new friends and to one day meet those that have been so kind to befriend me through here.

This is me with a sword brought in for knife sharpening:

I realize this isn't the most professional picture... but I figured I should put up a picture that describes me a little. LOL

6977
This is a better picture of what I look like. :)

Just a little background on myself. I am Korin’s knife master’s (Mr. Sugai’s) and Korin’s CEO’s (Ms. Kawano’s) daughter. I am a born and raised New Yorker, who has traveled around Japan since I was very young to visit different vendors. I have been working with Korin for a little over year now, but I still have so much to learn. I hope to learn more about kitchen knives through KKF and the different needs people have to improve Korin. I also hope to contribute to this forum in an informative and fun way. Besides providing information about knives, I would love to share pictures and stories from working at Korin.

Please let me know if I could assist anyone in any way. I will do my best to provide you with the information you need. Even if I don’t have the answer in my head, I will be more than happy to ask Mr. Sugai, do a little research, or anyone else in the company.

Welcome Mari, I work part of the time in Mid-Town so I know where 57 Warren St. is! Been there many times before. I'll try and drop by next trip and meet you in person.

That was an awkward period in my life. The counseling has helped. I still dream of us together though...

Oh awesome! :D Sorry I tend to be really REALLY bad with faces and names (I've even blanked out on my own cat's name...), but I'll remember your username as of right now, so I'll know who you are next time. :)

Whatever Theory says is correct so you should pay attention when he tells you that your inventory is 30% off for forum members. Also, be careful with that sword, and stay away from slowtyper; he proposes to everyone and he is like 110 years old :)
