    Installment of Korin's newest sharpening wheel

    We got a new machine!

    This new wheel is 1,500 pounds.


    My web manager who was helping getting the machine in: "You know those rescue documentaries about people saving baby elephants? Now I know how they feel. First world baby elephants."


    Must go in here... Some how.


    With the strength of about 10 men, our amazing warehouse guys lifted the machine up 2 steps. lol
    Customers were trapped inside for a few minutes.


    Almost!


    Yaaay! This thing is a little wider than our old machine. I wonder if our sharpeners will have enough space...

    Thanks for reading.

    Where are the employees going to shower now?
    "See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

    Is it new? If so where would I be able to find one or even a used one?

    Yes, its new. We purchased our's Japan through Mr. Sugai's grand master. I'm not sure where you would be able to find a used one, but I would not recommend purchasing an older one. The reason we changed our's is because one of our vendors told us we are supposed to change the stone every 2 years, but we couldn't change the stone on our older machine.

    I know, me too! Not to mention, I was just taking picture because they wouldn't let me help.
