    Best single mail delivery?

    I got a new Stephan Fowler gyuto and finger stones from Dr Naka / johndoughy in one day.
    My best delivery in quite awhile

    So, what's your best knife related delivery been?

    So far, best delivery for a knife actually has been the day when I have not gotten one. I been on the fence about getting one until I feel I can sharpen it properly, so anytime that I wait is a good day

    Glad you got them! My incompetent post office allowed me to mail them as large letters, so it saved postage!

    The day I got my first Japanese knives was pretty great, but the day the Rader passaround hit my door made me feel cool, the postal worker was impressed and was very coyly trying to ask what the hell was in that package!

    I take it back. My first guitar arrived in the mail. Best mail package ever.
    *edit* doh! That's not knife related.

    Greatest so far is when I got my first set of knives ever, which happened to be cutco. Just as good was when I got my first set of japanese stuff. Even better will be when I get a Dave Gyuoto and Hiro rehandle. And in my mind the best of the best when I can save up enough money will be for a Del damascus knife, those are a thing of beauty.

    That's a good question.

    To me that means when you open that box all of your dreams came true.

    Damn good question. Hmmmm.....

    Hahaha that was a lot of fun wrapping that one up for you. Was there enough bubble wrap and tape?

    OH MY GOD.

    I almost took a picture. It was like 20 minutes to get that thing out of there. I had enough that I threw away more than half of it, let my kid play with bubble wrap to her heart's content, and still had enough to pack it for the next guy.

    I didn't even know Pharmacies had lawn-sized paper bags.

    They have all been good so far, the ones from Jon are extra nice because they are sometimes wrapped and have notes. But, the most anticipated for me will hopefully be showing up in a few months from Texas.

    I do have to say. Getting a knife from Jon with a personalized note was a fantastic experience. That should have been on my list too. Probably one of my most used knives.
