    Hello from NELA

    I can't remember if I ever posted one of these. I signed up back in 2012, but am only now becoming "active". The site has been a great source of reference. I now have opinions, etc. that may or may not be fit to read, but I'll share them just the same.

    Name: Brian

    Location: West Monroe, Louisiana

    Professional Chef: NO....reasonably skilled "home chef", though I don't like my friends referring to me as a "chef". I haven't earned it.

    Cutlery: Shun, Mac, Wusthof, Victorinox Forschner, some other odds and ends

    Culinary interest: Italian, Greek, Cajun/Creole, Soul Food, Sous Vide, Pit BBQ, the list goes on. I like to "play".

    Pay the bills: Software developer

    Other Interests: Musician (bass), Whiskey Snob, Astronomy

    Knives and sharpening have been a big deal to me for as long as I remember. Cooking has made it much worse. I recently put together a set of Japanese waterstones and have gotten far more serious about building and maintaining edges. I shave with a straight razor and maintain it as a part of that effort.

    That's about all. Questions are welcome.

    Welcome!
    All cats are libertarians. Completely dependent on others, but fully convinced of their own independence.

    Welcome aboard!
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
