    Hi! From Portland Maine- the culinary Mecca of the North East:)

    Just wanted to say hi to all you other knife-knuts. I've been observing this forum as well as Knifeforums 'In the Kitchen' forum for awhile, and I thought it was time to take part once in awhile. I'm currently the newly christened Sous-Chef at Local 188 Restaurant, in Portland Maine. I'm lucky to be surrounded by a crew of fun, creative, and truly talented people. As well as a thriving local food community. We have some truly amazing, and stellar eateries in this little town, multiple James Beard winners and nominees. It's really a wonderful time to be a chef, not only here in Portland, but across America. Particularly in regards to the amazing steel available to us ply our trade with now days I look forward to sharing my addiction with you fellow addicts

    Hi! Are you employed at any of the local eateries, by any chance?

    Welcome! Spent a summer in Westbrook and caught striped bass at old orchard beach. Gotta love a place where even McDonald's serves lobster.

    Of course, you know that James Beard was from Portland, Oregon!

    Thanks Johnny! I feel a little light in the knife bag compared to your set up I'd love to post some pics, but I'm using a iPhone 4s as both my only camera/sole means to interact with the interwebs... I'm a little ignorant in this regard- but can I download pics straight from my phone somehow? Or do I have to use a hosting site? And if so- is there any you'd reccomend?

    Picassa works well for me. Free and simple to use.
