Greetings from a new old guy. I used to participate on the old forum, and its nice to see some familiar "faces" around here. So this is where the cool kids hang out now. :-)
I'm just a home cook who enjoys nice knives. I participated in the first Hiromoto group buy Dave organized a few years ago. Here's a photo of my knife, together with my Tadatsuna chukabocho, which Dave also rehandled (from http://japaneseknifesharpening.blogs...rk-lately.html):
I've been out of touch with the knife world for maybe a couple of years. It's nice to be back.
