A Good Sharp Mess
What defines a good mess? For me it is (in no order) good knives, good food, good company, and good wine.
Justin0505 came over tonight and we had a soup party. He made a coconut shrimp curry and I made a Moroccan lamb harira soup. They both turned out great.
Knives and kit used:
* Shigefusa Usuba with Mario handle
* Martell Gyuto #10
* My new Marr rehandled cleaver (via Nathan)
* Al Pendray hunter with new Dave edge
* Rodrigue sheep's foot parer and regular parer
* Devin Thomas cleaver
* Masahiro cleaver with Fish handle (via Rick/Andy)
* Carter SFGZ
* Fowler Gyuto
* Ealy and Devin Spoons
* Boardsmith and Green River Woods cutting boards
* Zaca Mesa
* Rosenberg Estates
Anyhow, it was a good time even though it was a school night. Below are some pictures.
Sweet! I need a knife/cooking buddy.
Man.... that is a mess! Good times.
I think the fire is on under that saute pan in photo 2
LOL. It was on and I turned it off shortly after taking the photo. Nothing like having a non-stick fry pan on simmer for a couple hours ;)
Man you got that cleaver?!?!?! I just saw that thing and am feeling so jealous. Great score! Oh and nice mess too...
That is a great mess! Getting together with other knifenuts is the best. :)
It's still there if you want to drop by and do some dishes...

Good times :)
I'm done cleaning up now.
Next time I want to see one of you with the Marr and Devin's cleaver in each hand. Some great steel in that group.
