    Austin huh? We should hook up some time.

    Every building that I've worked in since I moved back here in '98 has that warning in the lobby.

    If one of you guys with a real Kramer wants to ship it to me for a few days, it would be fun to bring it to class and tell him I just bought it on eBay
    When he was holding classes for his Shun knives, at some locations, you would receive a sharpening stone (King if I recall) and some other swag. But, those classes weren't free.

    These are not free - $100/ person. That's a bit more then one of their regular cooking classes, but they are throwing in their "Knives Cooks Love" book 'for free'

    I took one of their knife skills classes 5-6 years ago; it was okay but not great. I'm hoping to learn something from Bob, though. Signed up my wife as well, so she can meet a celebrity. I hope it's not a letdown after seeing all the other famous knife makers at the ECG 2 weeks earlier

    Is there any reason to be more excited for these than we were for the Shun knockoffs?

    Its a closer replica of his knives made of the same material his normal knives are. The shun Kramers really only share a profile with the real ones.

    Sure, I'm up North. But the only thing I have that you might not have seen is my new Delbert Ealy gyuto.

    What are the odds that Williams Sonoma will get a 52100 Meji in six months?

    I live up North also in Cedar Park near Lake Travis. I don't have anything really cool except for the DT bubble wrap suji I've been working on for the last zillion months.

    I mean I gotta say I find it intriguing. After they come out and if someone with a real Kramer gets and reviews one of these and says performance is at least similar and the grind is good, I would consider buying one. I mean, lets face it, I'm never going to afford/want to spend 5k for the real thing.

    I guess we will find out around the end of the month.
