Last call for orders before we leave for our annual japan trip (which you can read more about here: http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/japan-trip )

The last orders we will ship out before we leave must be placed before 3pm PDT (thats west coast time for you east coasters) on Tuesday September 18th, 2013. If you want to get something before we leave, now is the time.

After 3pm, all orders placed (and orders placed for the duration of our Japan trip) will be shipped out when we return (actually, they will ship the monday after we return, as the first day back to work for us will be a sunday).

Many of you have already gotten your orders, but i just wanted to give you all one last heads up.

No biggie, the Game Dinner I help out with don't start until December/Jan anyway!! Give me more time to practice Wa handles :)

yeah... but its still not fun being out of stock of stuff and having people wait... We're working on it.

Anyways, BUMP again... just a few more hours left to place orders.

Snagged a 6000 grit splash and go for work. I hope this works as well as I think it will. It looked like it maintained the contrast between hagane and jigane which is what I need.

it does a decent job at that, but just make sure not to press too hard. When i get back from japan, i may have something for you to add to that 6k at work for an awesome 2 stone setup... its in the process of being made now ;) For a synthetic 2 stone combo, it does a damn good job overall and leaves nice contrast.

you should be ;)

some people who have visited the store recently have tried my prototypes and know what i'm talking about. This whole making stones thing has really become an obsession.

Is it something in the 1k range or perhaps lower?

Bring back some burnt chestnut handles for your re-handling service!

And some D-handles!

Oh and yeah, those stones I tried were pretty awesome.

Take care and have a great trip.

I figured you wanted to keep things under wraps for now, so no details from me.

Fingers crossed for the handles.
