    Oiled My Board

    Hey everyone! I just wanted to apologize if my service has been less than exceptional in the last 2 or so weeks. I've been sporadic in my responses, lazy with my shipping and just kinda unmotivated when it comes to the site. There's no real excuse, other than - sometimes we can all suck for a little while. Although many of you have stated otherwise, I can feel the suckiness, and I'm thinking it's just one of those random "blah" times.

    I have three knives to get out to customers and they will be shipped today. If you have an order with me, and you haven't yet received it, I'm talking about your new knife. Again, I'm sorry for the delay.

    As for the random sounding title of this thread, I guess I'll explain it now: About two weeks to three weeks ago, my wife took out the cutting board to help with dinner and she said, "Your board looks dry. I think you need to oil it". I looked at it and kinda shrugged and went, "Yeah, you're right." We then cooked dinner, brought the dog to the vet, brought him there again, picked him up, ate food, vacuumed, slept about 20 times, worked, sharpened a knife or two, did a review, drank coffee and suddenly I woke up this morning. I looked at my board and thought, "Holy crap! My board does need oiling". It's now oiled up, and I'm about to package up three knives for some of my best customers (no offense, but these are multiple/repeat guys, and I've neglected them like this).

    I'm hoping to bring back the service you guys have told people I give, and to keep my board nicely oiled up.

    Thanks for the awesome patronage everyone!

    Now you reminded me to oil my board, I've been putting it off for too long

    Lefty, you slacker!
    Just kidding. I know all about being in a slump/funk.
    Next time get your wife to whip you with a barber's strop for motivation.

    I'm feeling that right now, trying to edit a shaving video (you know the razor) and my cat of 14 years passed away this weekend so I've been a bit off center. I'm getting over it and working on the video again and planning the follow up, lets see how that goes LOL

    We all get thick minded once in a while, as long as we roll with it and come out the other side ready for action... All is good

    What? No pics of the board?

    No worries, you can just blame it on the Canadian Post.

    you guys are tough , you'll be fine. a lotta folks getting the grey weather funk. I had nothing to do with the cat.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
