    NY International Restaurant and Food Service Show

    You can read about this on our blog here

    This march, Sara and I will be travelling to New York for about a week. The craftsmen we work with to produce our Gesshin Hide line have asked us to represent them at the New York International Restaurant and Foodservice Show (http://www.internationalrestaurantny.com/) from March 4th-6th 2012. During the time we are gone (Mar. 1st- Mar. 7th), we will be closing our store temporarily. All orders placed during this time will ship out when we return on the 7th. We will, however, be checking e-mail and voicemail regularly while we are in New York, so if you need to contact us, it should not be a problem at all.


    (Me with the Gesshin Hide Craftsmen in 2011)


    For those of you in New York or on the east coast, we would love it if you can find some time to come out to the show and visit us. We'll be there with a bunch of Gesshin Hide knives, including many never before seen in the US. We will also have some of our sharpening stones with us (not enough to sell, but the'll be there for people to test out if time and space permits). In addition, I am planning on bringing some of the knives from my personal collection for some people to check out after the show hours. If there is something specific I have that you might be interested in checking out, let me know before we leave and I will do my best to bring it along.

    Sara has never been to New York, so this should be a really fun trip. We hope to have time to make it to a museum or two, but we'll see how things go. Also, we would love to get out to some of our customer's restaurants while there... again, time permitting. If you're in NY, let us know and we will see if we can make some time to swing by and say hi (and hopefully give you a chance to try out some of the knives and stones we will have with us). We'll be in NY from Mar. 1st to the 7th.

    Anyways, we're really excited for the event... we promise to post as much video and as many pictures as possible. We may even do some live video feeds if all goes well.

    Jon that is such a great photo man. I love your passion for what you do. Good luck in NYC. My brother lives up there and wish I had the coin to visit him and meet you.

    Cool, good luck. Curious for anyone who has been to this convention...what to expect from it? I actually have free time during that period....I'm about a 13 hour drive from NYC

    From Jon's blog post "If you come to the event, you will be able to find us in the Japan Pavillion (in Sakai City's section)... booth 2220 I think."

    It's pretty cool. Lots of vendors sharing their wares or showing new products. Many samples to be tasted. I was eating foi gras and ice cream all day it seemed. Also, scored a dynamic mixer for next to nothing as well! Overall pretty cool.

    I'll be there again this year but am trying to determine which date. Maybe we can coordinate a gathering here.
