    So my girlfriend's moving back to Seattle...

    Is this is an opportune time to pass on my Tojiro knives as a housewarming "gift" and buy something better? Or should my conscience be stopping me?

    I try to never gift knives to a female(there are exceptions) as it's bad juju. Too likely a possibility they could be used against you. Ditch your consience and buy some new knives anyway, hey you deserve it! The new knives will be in celebration of her moving back.

    Well the way I see it is we'll be living together someday when she'll actually cook for me, lol. So I need to break her in and enlighten her when it comes to the joys of using a quality, sharp Japanese knife. Right now she thinks it's a simple obsession, like American-made hand tools. Before she touches the rest of my knives, she'll know to pinch grip, clean after use, etc.

    I think you would better send a romantic gift for your gf. Knife, to me, not a good one for her.
