Thread: Korin post Hurricane Sandy

  1. #1

    Korin post Hurricane Sandy


    For the past three days, it was impossible for us to make it downtown to check up on the store. But today, we were finally able to make it over to Korin and of course, there was no power.

    But the show must go on!


    We took our iphones and started collecting the knives that needed to be taken to our NJ warehouse (because they had power and internet) to be shipped.


    Vincent (knife sharpening apprentice) digging through knife covers.


    In the basement to retrieve more knives with nothing but iphone light, which was actually brighter than the flash light we had. lol


    Making sure everything on the order is correct by triple checking.


    Packing it all into the car, because the Korin truck is out of gas and many places in NJ.

    Things are a little difficult, but we're managing. Hopefully power will come back soon and they will pump out the water out of the subways.

    After we began closing the gates, two customers tried to stop by. It really made my day to know that people go out of their way to come to Korin even if its inconvenient to get here.

    I hope you and your family are safe and sound. Thank you for reading!

    Glad you and the store are OK. Hope all gets back to normal as soon as possible for the whole Korin family.

    Thanks! We were all really worried that the basement flooded after seeing how badly downtown was hit. Was NC hit by the storm? Is everything okay on your end?

    I hope they didn't cancel Halloween there like they did up here.

    Thanks for the update, Mari.

    Glad that you're all right, and that the store wasn't damaged.

    Really glad no people or things were damaged (in that order). I'm so sorry that the iPhone flash is better than your flashlight though!

    You guys are awesome for thinking of your customers in the midst of all of this, just awesome.

    Stay safe and sane!

    You can tell it's New York, no Coleman lanterns.

    Whew, relief! I was bracing myself for tales of flooding and saltwater-immersed carbon blades. Good to hear that didn't happen.

    I was hoping for a sale of some salt stained knives!

    Glad your shop is OK and everyone is safe. In Central CT, we just got some wind, but along the coast got nailed pretty good. NYC looked pretty bad from the news that I have seen.

    Look for some LED flashlights, they are easy on the batteries and crazy bright
