    New guy from NJ

    Hi all, great forum here.

    I'm a career hobbyist of sorts.. Guitar, wine, beer, sports, working out, I have a lot of loves.

    Growing up with an Italian mother, food in particular has always been a passion.

    I have 3 boys under the age of 8, and split the cooking duties for my household.

    I love chopping stuff and always wanted a real nice knife, just never knew how involved and wonderful the world of cutlery was... Until I saw this site...

    Awesome, yet another thing for me to obsess about.

    Great to have another Italian from Jersey. Although it was my fathers mother that passed on anything close to cooking skills to me, mothers side is all German/English/Irish meaning there is no talent there. I know Theory is in central jersey as was I before I relocated to Georgia (awful, closest thing I got to pizza was Brooklyn style dominos which was awful). When getting into cutlery I stated with a 180mm shigefusa gyuto, the brand was great the size was awful I would suggest getting a 240mm or 270mm gyuto with 5 people in the household, if you give the guys here a budget and an idea of what you usually work with/expect from a knife the guys here wil give you plenty of quality knives to look at. I would also recommends Japanese Knife Imports (JKI), I've never dealt with them but I've never heard a bad word about Jon or the way he does business. From what is posted here he tries to recommend what is the best for you regardless of if he carries it.

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
