    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.

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

    As soon as I read this I felt sorry for the delivery guys trying to park over there. What a beast of a machine, can I play with it Mari?

    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.
    The plug is different from our last one, so its actually not up and running yet. LOL
