Huge fan of the site!!! Been a Knife/Cutlery fan since my youth. Can remember, over forty years ago, sitting at the kithchen table and sharpening hunting knives with my uncle. Some of the best times of my life. Being a chef for over thirty five years now I have become (pretty much) obsessed with the tools I use. Found this site from a link @ Japenese Knife Imports and it seems to be right in my wheel house.
