What do people want me to try and steal from Jon's store. :running:

Stoked to be coming out for a couple days. See you in a couple weeks!

I think you should snag a Hinoura black damascus. Would look great next to your Kramer as a kind of east/west symmetry thing.

Actually, swipe two of those. I'll reimburse you for shipping to NC. :outonlimb:

I had a blast in LA with Jon. We crushed some serious food and a couple drinks here and there. I got to fondle a bunch of knives and more stones. I am really proud of myself for walking out of the store with nothing (despite sending Jon a pretty solid order for my staff the next day).

There were some knives that I really liked and just kept picking up over and over again.

But in the end. Thanks Jon. Next time we will rock NYC again. And I will figure out how to get back out to LA soon.

I have a gegentsu and I really like that knife.

I handled a heiji 240 gyuto (did not use it). Felt really nice in the hand, I have to say. I honestly like all the Heiji knives.

Kochi Kurochi Yanagi. I picked it up about 5 times.

I want a Katsuo Bocho, I loved that knife, but I would never use it
