Hello from the Bay Area - US
Newbie from San Fran checking in. I just found this forum and want to use it to educate myself. A little background: I love cooking at home and love nice things and gadgets. I have a pair of Sabatiers that need to be replaced and I have just booked a 16 day summer vacation with the family going to Hong Kong, Tokyo and Kyoto. Leaving June 30th. I love the look of Japanese knives and think that's the way I want to go.
So, now I am trying to figure a couple of things out:
1) Is there still money to save by buying knives while I am in Japan
2) What knifes to get (I will post another thread somewhere with a little profile of what I am looking for.
Hope to learn a lot from all of you.
