    I like it; and I'll like it even more when you finish Hide and Ittetsu.

    They're great, Jon. Thanks for doing them so quickly!

    I noticed that when I select Gesshin Ginga, the first so many knives are Ashi. Not sure whether that's intentional.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    i thought the Gesshin Hide had a link that talks more about them... gesshin ittetsu i still need to do. It will have to wait until i have some more free time.

I do agree that i move them in and out pretty quickly... maybe i can hold them up for a longer time or maybe i can shoot a separate video of just the knives.

    On the new knife design, i have quite a few things in development right now and i think one or two may fit the bill.

    Also, on stones, i have plans to do a general stone overview video as soon as i have the time. In fact, in addition to the things all of you have suggested, i have a long list of things i plan on doing.
    I was thinking about this more - two ways you could possibly do it w/ little not or no editing; 1) stand in front of a table, with approximately the same zoom, and give an intro to the knives, then have your assisant (ahem, Sara) pans the camera down to the table where you can show the knife in detail and describe it's characteristics and let poepl really soak in the knife visually. Then, your lovely assistant (ahem, Sara) could pan the camera back up to your face for closing comments. 2) do a point of view or over the shoulder shot, as you've done in the sharpening seminars/videos. But this would probably eliminate any shot of your face unless you edited the vid.
    Shibui - simplicity devoid of unnecessary elements

    yeah... i'm thinking of how i can do this best. Its not all that important that i'm in the videos, but it just felt odd when it was a lot of me talking and my hands doing nothing. However, it is worthwhile to note that most of the videos i shoot now days, i do entirely by myself, so i have no helper to move a camera.

    Jon, your product selection on your site can be filtered by brand and type. Have you thought about sorting by type of steel? So with one click I can see your entire selection of white #2, for example.
