    I don't have that much to add in knives or stones, mostly basic or common, but will most likely be able to attend to see the sights.

    No worries. I think you should bring your stuff anyway. Maybe we can squeeze a little sharpening advice out of J-Bro.

    Don't worry. I don't have a lot of knives either.

    I'm hoping this gathering is really going to be about meeting up, eating some good food, having a few beverages and talking about knives, cooking, whatever.

    Honestly, I'm hosting this because I want to give something back to the knife community. I've learned a ton from the people here and everyone I've met in person has been great. I think that's one of the most important and best things about our hobby/endeavor/knutness - the people.

    When I was pretty seriously into wine, I would go to wine events and you could just hear a number of people talking about their first growth bordeauxs, burgundies, blah blah blah. Rather than sharing information, it was the douchiest pissing contest ever. And most of the people didn't really know crap - they knew their wines, but didn't really have a good, broad knowledge of wines. I haven't met a single person here who's first words out of their mouth is "I have [INSERT NUMBER] of Bill Burke, Devin Thomas, Kramer, etc. knives."

    So don't feel that you have to have good knives or crazy stones to join us. Join us to hang out. That's what I'm hoping for.

    I hadn't thought of it that way, Michael but you're absolutely right. Still, I think it would be nice to check out some knives and see what people have done with theirs. I'm certainly planning on bringing a few. If anyone has any requests, I'd be happy to bring whatever and a bag of sacrificial produce.

    Everyone is absolutely welcome to bring knives and what not. I just don't want people not to come because they feel that they don't have knives or other things to share.
