    Greetings from the Canadian Best Coast (I mean west coast)

    Salutations,

    Live in BC, love food, love knives, love to cook. A natural fit is nice kitchen knives! I got into J-knives by accident. I was gifted a santoku cutco knife as a wedding present. I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. I started reading about cutco's, and quickly realized that they are over prices, sub-par POS's. I tried a shun gyuto at a friends house, and was instantly hooked. Shun, a vast step up from Cutco, (but still over-priced) got me interested in gyutos. After much lurking on websites such as this, I decided to purchase a couple of Fujiwaras in 2011. I haven't looked back since

    Next couple of knives i'd like to try out are a honesuki, and a Richmond Artifex Gyuto in M390.

    Welcome!
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    Welcome!

    And unless you have tremendous self-restraint, enjoy the knife ride and ignore the sounds of discomfort your wallet will make
