    Welcome! I did a project in HomeBush Bay many years ago, on the Parramatta river. I understand these days that area has been re- named. You'll love it here.

    Welcome! We'll need to see pics, of course. What did you get?

    Welcome! I have been to Sydney and surfers paradise. My mom was born in Sydney when my grandpa and grandma both doctors were doing missionary work there many years ago. Only country I have considered moving to.

    Yeah Sydneys not soo bad...

    From Takeshi I ordered a 210mm Yoshikane Wa Gyuto V2 - should have it in a few days.
    From Maxim I ordered a 180mm Zensho Santoku, a Nobiyasu Nakiri and a Hakka stone. He kindly offered to sharpen the Santoku so not sure when I'll get that but know it will be worth the wait.

    Being in to straight razors for a few years I have quite a few stones, strops, hones and on hand. I'll be sure to ask questions about which should/shouldn't be used on these knives as I don't want to rush in and ruin a blade. Meanwhile, I'll keep lurking and researching.

    I'll add some pics when the Postman delivers!
