    In. I think I can go a bit more advanced even though I am youtube/book taught.
    Everywhere you go, there you are.

    I'll be "extremely-last-minute" if I can make it, hoping there are spots left when I know my situation. I might be able to fly into Philly, then continue on from there on Monday. Also I'd need to ship my class materials to you (the knives, at least) and arrange to have them shipped back. A bit of a PITA, but believe it or not -- even in my tiny clown car that easily gets 60 mpg on the highway -- it's still cheaper for me than driving the 900 mile round trip. FWIW, I'm an absolute beginner but a quick study, and the knives I'd be bringing are worthy (Masa KS 270 gyuto and Suisin ginsanko 300 yanagi).

    Next question: what would be a good suggested coarse-medium-fine stone set from the selection you offer? Beston 500, Bester 1200, Rika 5000? With a Suehiro holder, and maybe get a Kitayama 8000-ish for finishing?

    Hi Franceso, I hope that it works out that you can make it, sure would be nice to have you attend.

    For the stones, yes you picked wisely with your selection, that's exactly what I'd recommend although I wouldn't necessarily recommend the Kitayama unless you have a yanagiba or usuba.

    Don't let me fail you for bringing only German (or custom American) knives to class and forgetting your stones too.

    Just a little remnder to those who are attending that this is a Japanese knife sharpening class and you should make sure that you have the requirements. I've learned it's best to mention this beforehand because there's always someone...

    Well, I'm going to bring one old bull-nosed butcher's knife anyway, so you can tell me why I can't get it sharp.
