    Hello from Sweden!

    Howdy!
    Just wanted to say hello and do a quick introduction of myself.

    My name is Dan and i live in a smallish town in the north of Sweden.

    Working as a mental carer for people with long gone illness, also studying wood science at LTU.

    Im quiet new to the big addiction(kitchen knives) and last summer i got hooked on making knifehandles... and the noble art of inventing new creative curse words(they somewhat go hand in hand).

    So there you have it, one "lurker" unmasked.

    Sorry for gimped English, hope this is readable.

    välkommen

    Really happy that i am not the only one from Sweden. I live in Skåne. I hope that other members from Sweden will show up in this forum. I am waiting for a Shigefusa gyuto kitaeji 255 mm with magnolia handle and i feel that i will upgrade to another handle quite soon. It is always easier to order from someone in the same country. Show more pix if you can. Regards from Skåne
