    Get back to us when you see a thread praising Dave's or another KKF vendor that doesn't sell through Mark. In the meantime, get a brain.
    I've seen Gesshin knives, Gesshin stones and David Smiths cutting boards all praised on CKTG's forum.

    I'm a line cook and I make line cook wages in the South. I don't base my purchases (which are part of my livelihood) off group-think or certain website's vendors. I happen to like the vendors for this website quite a bit - mostly because they have helped me become better educated about multiple things - but I have ZERO bias towards them or any other vendor. When I was down in your neck of the woods cooking a few years back, all my fellow cooks told me that CKTG was the website for knives. I have bought multiple knives, stones and bags through them - all at an affordable price, with ridiculously quick, free shipping, and everything received safely and in good condition.

    I am not a fanboy. I understand completely why Mr. Martell feels the way he does - and stated each time in this thread that I respect it. That he doesn't want to send any sort of business their way makes complete sense to me. Why other people in this community don't want to spend their money there, I get that too. But for me, I have spent hundreds of dollars there and had zero problems - so I will continue to keep an open mind about their products. Simple as.

    Edit: Ken Schwartz is obviously a bit of a buffoon. Just listening to him talk for more than 5 minutes or his sales pitch for his 'swordsmith' knives confirms that. And a lot of the CKTG videos are cringeworthy. But that doesn't change that I feel my Nuuubbaaaattaammma 1k stone is a very good stone or that they have a wide and affordably priced selection
    im very relaxed. thanks for asking. it doesnt matter who you are or what your background is. i was giving you advice, not insulting you. just find a vendor you can trust and use him to your advantage.

    Do a search of Gesshin. I just did. There are 5 posts. Praise? Hardly. And no posts about Gesshin knives except for someone who owns one and listed it among the knives he owns.

    If they were praised as you put it, those posts aren't there anymore.

    Yep
    I'll bet it's Dave Martell's fault.
    If KKF didn't suck so bad, my peepees wouldn't hurt.
    Screw this place, I'm a gonna go help Kenny out with the KF revival.

    I'm gonna blame the full moon for all the craziness around here lately. It's tried and true. Maybe tomorrow this place will be back to 'normal'.

    Just to finalize my position here...I've told Mark directly that he has a lack of scruples as well as a lack of knowledge about knives...so there.

    Excellent rude behavior. I've commented in several threads already, including an introductory post of my own, and this was my support of a comment. If you have a problem with someone writing "+1," what are you doing on a forum? There's no need to be inhospitable, especially when I'm not even bring inflammatory. Save the snark for those deserving of it, if you don't mind.
