    A Good Sharp Mess

    What defines a good mess? For me it is (in no order) good knives, good food, good company, and good wine.

    Justin0505 came over tonight and we had a soup party. He made a coconut shrimp curry and I made a Moroccan lamb harira soup. They both turned out great.

    Knives and kit used:

    * Shigefusa Usuba with Mario handle
    * Martell Gyuto #10
    * My new Marr rehandled cleaver (via Nathan)
    * Al Pendray hunter with new Dave edge
    * Rodrigue sheep's foot parer and regular parer
    * Devin Thomas cleaver
    * Masahiro cleaver with Fish handle (via Rick/Andy)
    * Carter SFGZ
    * Fowler Gyuto
    * Ealy and Devin Spoons
    * Boardsmith and Green River Woods cutting boards

    For wine:

    * Denner
    * Zaca Mesa
    * Efeste
    * Rosenberg Estates
    * Shaya

    Anyhow, it was a good time even though it was a school night. Below are some pictures.

    LOL. It was on and I turned it off shortly after taking the photo. Nothing like having a non-stick fry pan on simmer for a couple hours

    That is a great mess! Getting together with other knifenuts is the best.

    Looks like some of the west coast gathering we had, but add about 10 people in the same kitchen

    Good times

    Next time I want to see one of you with the Marr and Devin's cleaver in each hand. Some great steel in that group.
