    Pickin' up knives from Jon and Sara is always a pleasure. I acquired a konosuke from him awhile back and I've been signing my paychecks over to him ever since lol. They're a very honest, ethical and classy duo.

    Jon Broida is a gentleman and a scholar...so don't come crying to us when you can't pay your mortgage because you spent all your coin on Heijis and Inos.

    I wish I could visit, but I'm spending too much already even without stepping foot into JKI and chatting with Jon in person. How's the cost of living in LA after factoring in likely spending patterns at JKI?

    Not sure I would go carbon, considering what I use smaller knives for, but find myself wanting a petty from that pic. Very nice knives.

    I thought maybe a Konosuke HD, but after being on the fence about it ended up with the Gesshin Ginga 210mm wa-petty. It's stainless, it's a laser, it's got all the fit and finish you could ever want. I haven't sharpened it yet. I just picked it up yesterday, and can't stop looking at it.
