    I think Montague has a demo facility near San Diego - I'm trying to find out, but if they do have it I'll go down there and try it out.

    We have an almost brand new Imperial chicken grill, which is similar we had before, but it's probably 10% cooler than the old one. The old one was about 10% cooler than I would have preferred, so...

    I've never ordered from rakuten, but in my experience the prices there are about average for a good price in Japan. You could probably get it 5-10% cheaper at a cheap knife shop in Tokyo if you know...

    The Osaka-style unagi saki (Masamoto KS1518) is about $200 on rakuten. I think those knives are good for most sized unagi and anago. They're a little hard to use with big eels because if they're...

    I have a Koobi Kit and I really like it, but my 300mm yanagi with saya will not fit inside it straight. I have to keep it out of the pocket and put it in diagonally. Other than that it's been great.
