This morning, I met a member here, who just happened to buy a knife from our shop. I hand delivered the item, and got to play around with a beautiful collection of knives (albeit, some were ground on the wrong side of the blade) and talk about what we all love, with someone as sick in the head as I am. Great taste in knives seems to correlate with being a really cool guy (like myself ).
3 hours and 3 coffees later (combined), I walked away feeling downright awesome! The fact that I got to meet a member, face to face, and see how pleased he was with the products really felt great! The best part of all is, I know we'll meet up again to talk, and scare the good folks at Starbucks with our arsenal of kitchen weapons.
What I'm getting at is: if you guys want me to hand deliver items, I'm very happy to do so, as long as you pay "shipping" for me, to and from wherever it is you live...well, preference will be given to Florida, California and Hawai'i.
