    Items on the way from JCK

    CN santoku and JCK combo whetstone ordered from Koki today, im quite qurious about the stone. Koki claims they are smoother then Bester and King and they have a nice price. (Dad is getting one as well as i broke one of his ).

    Me, too. Let us know how it works (Although just about anything I've tried seems to work well with the CN.).

    This is the first time I've ever heard of something from Koki getting stuck at customs.
    It'll be worth the wait!

    Hopefully the postman doesn't bring a customs bill with the package. I got hit up with one of those recently for a non-knife purchase. I had ordered from the vendor many times with no problem, but it looked as if customs just did a random inspection and deemed my package to warrant a duty.

    Yeah, I just got dinged for $30, but the Carter is in (I can't pick it up until Thursday!!!), but with no duty due. It's really random, but it seems you don't have to pay more often than you do, so we can't complain too much, can we?

    Be patient! My last purchase sat in customs longer than the rest of the trip combined! No fees though.

    I've got a FKH Suji on the way from Koki, my first carbon - its hard to be patient!

    Yeah wait till you guys order your first custom knife and the wait time is measured in months or years!

    The FKH is a nice entry to carbon, have fun with it. Mine gets abused and keeps on going.

    Potato, I think I have 2-3 months left on my wait. Lucky for me, I don't have to worry about border issues!
