Thread: Hi from Toronto!

    Hi from Toronto!

    Hi all! The amount of reading I've done about knives over the past two weeks has been dizzying. I must have read hundreds of posts from various forums, but inevitably come back to check KKF the most often.

    I love food, and cooking. Good company and good food are parts of the joy of life, right? My adventure in knives started with my first knife purchase when I moved out on my own. A pair of Wusthofs on discount, 8" chef and small pairing knife. I enjoyed them at the time, but always felt like they do their job, but weren't a pleasure to use. Several years later and I decided to jump onto the santoku craze by purchasing a Takayuki damascus VG10 from Paul in Montreal. I was struck with the cladding, which, admittedly, took me a few months to get over the babying of the knife and just USE it.

    All this reading in the past two weeks as I look to replace/expand my collection and get joy out of using knives has been an eye-opening education. Thanks to all here. I look forward to reading, and perhaps participating, in many more threads and discussions.

    Thanks! Noticed a few other Torontonians while browsing the threads. Moved here recently from Montreal.
    Visited KNIFE recently, looking forward to visiting Tosho. Any other places are a worthwhile visit?

    KNIFE and Tosho are the two best places for knives, stones, etc. Plenty of stuff between the two of them to keep your wallet permanently on-alert
