Thread: Greetings from the Sunshine State

  1. #1

    Greetings from the Sunshine State

    Hello to all Kitchen Knife Forums members

    Been poking around here for a week or two and realized I haven't introduced myself yet.

    I am a native northern who recently relocated to the Sunshine State. The abundance of fresh, multicultural foods and spices available down in these parts have awakened my inner home cook.

    I dove right into the joys of cooking and quickly realized I couldn't even break the skin of a ripe, juicy mango with my cheapo Henkels. Hmmm....bit of Googling and now, thanks to KKF, I've learned that the honing steel is not really a sharpener.

    I've recently decided to dip my toes into the Japanese cutlery world and purchased my first two inexpensive Japanese knives; a Hattori Santoku and a Tojiro Nakiri. I'm planning on putting them to good use for all my veggie prepping needs.

    Thank you for having me here. I look forward to going where ever this new hobby will take me!

    Welcome. From a native northerner. Who cannot see himself ever voluntarily in FL for more than perhaps a week. (Heat and humidity don't agree with me -- though clearly winter in FL has its virtues.)

    Where in the Sunshine State are you?

    Keith, in Tallahassee
    If you reach the age of 60 without becoming a curmudgeon, you haven't been paying attention.
