    First part is obvious, I am in the Air Force. When I joined knife forums, it wouldn't take just Jason; gave me things like Jason93702 and such. So I combined AFkitchenknifeguy because I could care less about any other type of knife. I changed it to be plural here.

    Texicanized Conjunction

    Being born and raised in El Paso Texas, on the border with Juarez Mexico, it was quite difficult for most people to pronounce my last name Zalesak. So I sort of culturalized my first and last name so no-one could possible screw it up hence Pabloz. Still works just fine up here in Albuquerque, 250 mile due north.

    Not so inside to people who know Japanese!

    I'm pretty much a complete hack when it comes to knives and cooking. but admitting you don't know anything on an internet forum is tantamount to suicide, so I embellished a little.

    As for me, my name comes from a liquor store in Zamalek in Cairo, Egypt. There was a bottle shop with the name Mister Drinkies, which had one of those all-too-common English usage errors you find in foreign countries. I thought the name was funny and wanted to start a bar named Mr. Drinkies. That never happened, so for now my username is Mr. Drinky.

    My first wife nicknamed one of the cars 'Porkchop'. A few years later the soon-to-be second wife politely requested I change the license plate. We had just returned from a trip to Italy, where I had eaten wild boar for half the dinners (was not available the first half of the trip ) Car got a new plate shortly thereafter, and I had a good name for food-related forums!
