I have just returned back from the event, and thought I would take this opportunity to thank all the attendees for a most excellent time spent at Marienlysk Hotel in Helsingør.
A special thanks to Maksim and Niclas and all the wonderful staff that catered to us while we were geeking out out over the hones.
It was a great meet-up, with tons of great products, awesome information and education, and most importantly, a wonderful group of people.
I will most definitely be back next time
"rigeli med smør!"
Great event !!! Niclas and his team made it fantastic and food was awesome !! A lot of coffe and beer
Nice to meet you all in person and share our pasion ! 2 days of constant sharpening I really hope we get together soon again !!!

apparently it was not too boring..
just great cases with stones and knifes , i think they both belong to one chef.
security was so secretive and quiet like Nordic secret Service ?
Honestly I dont think we can thank them enough, It really really was played very well.
Special thank you to the head chef. The hospitality was amazing. There was plenty of food and drink and fresh coffee all the time and Niclas going behind you shouting "take a beer! take a soda! Eat more! Take a sausage! You want some mustard?!?!" Very very nice and welcoming.
And to Maksim. Thanks man for your effort. Bringing all the stuff and giving some away for free oh and I got a tshirt! And the handle installment and so on. Amazing.
And to Bjørnar, amazing collection and very huge knowledge. You know your stuff! And the genuity and generosity you dont find so often.
And actually to all the rest also, for building the atmosfere of "stone fever"
I don't know how I should put this in words, but something I texted Niclas a few hours ago was that these few days of knife nerding and stone fondelig has been more relaxing than any four week vacation i have had the last years.
So to summarize this:
I guess Niclas was trying to stuff us with so much calories that if the kitchen should run out of foie gras during these days a random knut could feed the entire restaurant.
Maksim will have a piece of my salary in a not so distant future, there was so many things I wanted to take home but due to some sort of miracle I could hold back on the shopping and settled for 4 knives and 2 stones, Kato 240mm gyuto, Maksims old 240mm gyuto in unknow pm-steel(too cheap not to buy), two practice knives just for fun, Beston 500 and a JNS 6K and I THINK these will be my last syntetics... and ofc the free t-shirt!
One of the funnies moments during the event was when me and Bienek didn't believe Maksim that the Kato would cut so well as it did... i guess 5-year olds on x-mas looks sad comparing to how we must have looked when we gave it a try at every veggie they could bring from the kitchen.
I would like to end this post with a HUGE shout-ut to all who attended the event, I hope you guys had as fun as I had and I will see you all next time!
From a hotelroom in Marienlyst, written on my phone 45mins before my journey home begins i give this event 5/5.
