    Contact made.
    One of the reasons I hate those e-mail form box things on websites is they seem to have a high chance of kicking mine out as spam. Which, of course, is what they are designed to do even if I'm not really spam. I might add that the folks I work for are not interested in anyone they can't contact by phone or mail.

    Straight from the horse's mouth:

    They're some scrap upholstry leather, Goodwill belts, straps from an old purse, and some copper rivets. We're thinking about widening our press options by advertising our knives in nothing but the aprons. Although that would mostly scare people away I guess.

    He's a funny guy, that Luke. Haha

    lol.

    I guess their philosophy of using recycled materials goes beyond just their blades.

    I just got on their waiting list... he said it went from 4-5 weeks to 8 months in just the last few weeks. Really like the profile of their gyuto as it's a bit different than anything in my stable.

    Ditto, I too just joined their list and I love the idea of the reclaimed materials.
