ThEoRy; Did you buy anything or was this just recon for an upcoming shopping spree?

Nothing major, I was in the area so...I got a fish scaler. a couple of large black and red bento boxes, a couple of black and red soup bowls with matching Asian spoons and 2 pairs of really nice chopsticks.

Lol anyone notice the $6000 stone down in the corner? Good thing you don't have one of these near you.

Waaay too many super cool pieces in just one place. So many stand outs it's just ridiculous.

The Hayate were really nice, Aoko Mizu-Honyaki, Togiharu with Ebony, Masamoto Mirror Finish. etc etc

They said the Hayate light on display were the final ones. "Master doesn't really make knives anymore. And only for his personal pleasure, not for sale."

Could be true, he is really old now.

Wow! $6000.!! I thought it said $600. The price on that Hayate is really not too bad($600.) considering he won't be making any more(if the story is true) and they're likely to become collector items.

They have a good price IMO. And if you can wait, once or twice a year they have a 15% sale. Btw, I went there last week and notice a significant increasing price on japanese knife. I was shocked that nenox 285mm corian suji cost $615 now.
