    First Boardsmith ordered for me...

    My sister had thought I was just in a fit of enthusiasm when talking to her about knives. I sharpened her Wusthof and no-names, and she was much happier. But I sent her a CarboNext gyuto, which I bought used pretty cheap and sharpened myself. She used it and flipped out, started to understand all sorts of things she didn't before (like... it really IS possible to cut off your fingertips quickly if your technique is lackadaisical...)

    Anyway, then decided she needed a good board. Asked my recommendation. I pointed her at Dave. And she decided she was buying me one, too. Just what I wanted (in fact) and what I emphatically did not ask for. I got so much the better end of this "deal" ! Can't wait to get it and start cutting foodstuffs.

    Cherry is NICE!!! Mine is maple and mahogany borders. Pictures when you get it are a must!

    I think you are going to owe your sister some more complimentary knife sharpening!

    Let us know what you think when it arrives.

    It's a slightly better than true story. I just learned from her and Dave. She indeed bought me a board (yay!) but not her own yet... she's deciding on size and whether to do that or get something permanently installed o. a counter or island. Obviously she's got a real house with a real size kitchen. I thought the referral got Dave double the business already!

    Dave makes things for that and has a phone number otherwise yours will be nicer than hers. I seriously don't understand how I got by before mine.
