There are three very good places in Renton to buy unusual grub, Viet Wah (large store packed with SE Asian goodies), Uwajamaya (Japanese focused with above average fish), and DK Market (sort of an Exotic Foods Costco, bleak warehouse stuffed with interesting foreign goodies at knock-down prices, has the best Ukrainian Deli in town) - so I'm a pretty happy camper.
Welcome. With a growing cadre of knives and such great resources at hand, cooking should grow more exciting for you. Enjoy!

Welcome! Fix the tip. [/QUOTE]
Yes, this project is well in hand, the tip has been reground like a Bunka Hocho with an Edo-style reverse bevel, which I believe was how it was intended to be finished - it looks very much like the knife in this URL:
Still wondering why I can no longer post attachments....?
You must be somewhere else because Renton has been fantastically sunny this summer! I'm a knife maker in the east Renton highlands and I love it down here mainly because there are no rediculous hipsters wasting space. I also love viet wah, but not as much as the top of the hill market where Shawn and teds meat market is. There are so many great shops and businesses up here and all so close it's impossible not to love this area, in my opinion at least. It used to take me 25 minutes to commute from magnolia to Capitol hill for work, living in Renton I'm there in 17 minutes. I love it here.
If you're ever in the market for a handmade high carbon steel knife and exotic wood saya, just drop me a line.
