    I'm Finally On Kitchen Knife Forums :doublethumbsup:

    Hi, this is Sara from JKI

    For most people online, I think, Jonathan is THE owner of JKI, but I'm also an owner, and I am around in the shop (except I take an extra day off on Sunday). For some insiders, it might even appear that I'm a boss at JKI

    I was born and raised in Yamagata, Japan. I finished 2 year college in Tokyo, then transferred to and graduated from American Studies at Saitama University. I moved to the US to attend MA Journalism in the summer of 2008, and completed it in Dec 2009. So, I am a humanity major student to the core. I didn't expect to sell Japanese kitchen knives when I was a child (or a student). My dream was to pursuit History at PhD level and be a professor (or a fashion designer) But as the real life revealed itself, it was more interesting than I had imagined...

    We started our business in the begging of 2010. Now together with Jon, I import and sell Japanese kitchen knives, and we are both reconnected with the world of Japanese art and crafts. My parents are both potters and I love the world they belong to. Through our business, we continue to be a part of this artistic world even though we are located outside of Japan.

    I hope everyone is as excited as we are about our business (well, I know this is more than just business and almost hobby for Jon). Our store space is very small and limited, but our future has no limit for its expansion - I want our store to be a space where people can learn, discuss, meet, and get connected.

    I am not an expert in sciencey part of knives (or stones), but I really enjoy talking about why they are very special in our minds. I respect and love all the craftsmen we work with... Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you get to know about our special knives

    Thanks Dave, for hosting Kitchen Knife Forums, and giving us such a great way to interact with each other :mustache:

    Every smart, married man really knows who's the boss. I think Jon is, for the most part, a pretty smart guy.
