    Hi from Netherlands

    Hi all,

    Dived into here thanks to another board member, when we were talking knives elsewhere.
    Recently got into japanese knives because of my job, am a culinary student (exams soon) who works as a line cook.
    Sharpness has become an understatement....
    Autodidact on sharpening on japanese stones, and still learning every time.
    My joke at the restaurant where I work, was that I wanted a knife, SO sharp, that a tomato would go lie in slices all by itself, out of respect
    I love my blue paper steel eden kanso aogami and thats what I work with daily......hope to learn more here, and make new friends.

    mmm yeah its always nice to meet some fellow europeans.
    so any sources for knives etc in our continent......not to have to handle the high customs fees.
    I order mine from a dutch webshop currently called knivesandtools but they also have international sites selling the Eden knives...(and others).
    these days there seem to be a lot of this kind of shops around on the web, though nothing beats walking into a shop and handling them ourselves... mmm?

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
