    All done the sharpening. I worked the j-nat for this one. It's a freakin' slicing and dicing machine!
    Here's what you have to look forward to Scott.

    Good to see someone fanning the flames of addiction like this.

    Pretty knife Lefty. Nice looking edge too.

    I'll let you guys know what I think of the Nakiri that Lefty is lending me when it comes, I'm really excited to try a sharp J-knife!

    Lefty, do you think you'll manage to get through your normal prep now that you don't have this knife for a little while? PS: It looks great and it's pretty awesome to see people helpin out the new guys.

    Jason, i'm sure I'll manage. At work I use purely a cleaver and parer, because of wear and tear and the fact that everyone takes a turn, and at home I have my multiple gyutos, pettys, parers and a surprisingly great little Kiwi nakiri that had completely slipped my mind until right now! I'm looking forward to breaking it out again!

    Would it happen to be this nakiri? http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/...T/d6f3fa8d.jpg

    That's the beauty right there! I think it's in need of a face-lift.

    I just placed an order with Dave from Japanese Knife Imports (I should have called him in the first place) for a Yoshihiro 240mm Gyuto and a King #1000 stone. Dave was fantastic to deal with and even Skyped me (if you're reading this Dave I was having a lazy day so I could have a look at the different bolster colors on the knives he had in stock. I'm really excited to get the new knife and I'll post some pics when it arrives. Now I just have to decides on boards from The Boardsmith and I'll be set...for a while. Oh and Lefty I'll let you know when I ship your knife back.
