    Oh man, I'd love to come. I think I'm going to be in Asia until the 5th or 6th, though. Looking forward to the pictures.

    close enough that JKI will not be open that day because i will be at the WCG

    Truthfully, about 30-45 minutes (a bit more in heavy traffic)

    You're welcome to attend.

    There's no price of admission. It's more like, bring whatever you want to bring.

    And, I think we may have met. Did you bring a Sabatier to Jon's store that you were going to work on and asked about using a coarse stone or diamond plate to use to regrind and reprofile the knife with?

    Oh hey! That would be me... Nice to put a face to the "avatar"

    The Sab project went well, ended up coming back to JKI and ground it down on Jon's belt, then some stone work, working well now.

    Looking forward to the meet

    Cool.

    I'm glad the Sab project worked out well and that you got to use Jon's belt grinder.

    Marking this baby on my calendar right now. What to bring, hmmmmm. Wine? Brewskies? Though I don't drink wine or beer so my selections would suck. Maybe a desert from a place I know.

    Since this IS L.A. and there is ALWAYS traffic, I would guess an hour or so.
