    I'm going to make every effort to attend. Depending how life is at that moment I may train or drive it. I'm due for a road trip and wouldn't mind a little photo safari on the way. I'll fly if I have to.

    If I'm still in Portland and not in Hawaii, I'm totally going!

    I will have a cutting board at the show and some stuff to cut (maybe not onions, as those could fill the whole room with the smell pretty fast, ) at the table, so if you guys want to stop and do some cutting, you are welcome.

    I will also have my DMT setup: 1.2K, 4K, 8K, felt and leather strops, and 1M spray for you to play with.

    I plan to bring some 180-250mm gyutos, 150mm honesuki, 170-210mm nakiri, 8" breaking knife, 13" scimitar, some 270-300mm sujis in both stainless and carbon. For stainless, I am going to use PM#1 and PM#2 steels. Both steels in sharpness and edge retention resemble 52100. Knives will have a good mix of western and wa handles, but probably more western. Western handle knives will come with leather sheaths, wa handle knives with wooden sayas.

    For folks flying from Australia to attend the show, a discount!

    I will have knives in the following geometries at the show to check out and to test cutting - S grind, standard convex, heavy convex and asymmetric convex (last one provided I have time to complete). I will be staying at the hotel where show will be held, so I am not sure if I can find my way around to get some produce for cutting, but folks who plan on coming by car or who are local would like to bring some stuff to cut, please do. I think we might have to limit to things that are not messy or smelly like onions, potatoes and sweet potatoes would probably be sufficient -you should get an idea how each of these geometries will perform on most things, soft and hard.

    I have to work all weekend so sadly I won't be able to make the drive up from Portland. Good luck!
