    Hi all .. just posted first elsewhere as there were a few individuals to thank for a very long thread read, lots info!
    Anyway my name is porter, I'm a home cook with quite a few friends that are or have been execs or sous so I've been in a lot of boh both normal sized to a couple of monsters. Mac knifes brought me in from the German winter (no offense to the German members here!) in the 90's and about four years got the first real jk, a tf mab. The walls of the rabbit hole are greased aren't they?
    And as the first admission of a knifeholic.. I have lurked this forum.. I lurked too long .. should've joined earlier

    Welcome niwaki-boy. The rabbit hole is indeed greased - probably with some high-tech lithium gunk. It's also wide, dark and as far as I can tell, bottomless. Take care.
    BTW, the first J-knife to attract me was a Maboroshi. Glad you got yours, I'm still looking...

    Thanks Marek.. haha ..crap I think there's some ptfe involved as well! I didn't even think about the bottomless part as I'm floating completely unaware of any rules that involve 32ft persec/persec, do they offer parachutes halfway down? Is there something soft at the bottom like a pile of foam shigs?

    Yeah I love that mab, it's a small one 195 that goes 203, I completely reworked the wide bev, man that steel is something!

    Hey all,

    I think I'll hide my introduction in this thread instead of giving it it's own. Basically, the gist of my journey so far started when I picked up a Masakage Yuki Bunka as a shared gift to surpass some old Henckels knives. Like many other small hobbies I have that others would see as nonsensical, I'm starting to get sucked in. But to be fair, I saw it coming.

    Anyway, I found this place after doing some internet research for buying another knife as a gift. I'll likely ask for help in that area soon. I could also see myself getting into sharpening eventually, but for now I'll read around old stuff for some information on technique and stones. Any good resources are appreciated.

    Other than that, I have some hand-me-down wood handled German butcher knives from a grandfather that was working in butchery. Unfortunately, a family member took them to someone who literally butchered them. I'd like to get them back in order just for sentimental reasons.

    Welcome DanDan - should be able to get your Grandfathers knives back up to snuff in no time (pic's would help those around here to give some advice).
