    Bit of a splurge....

    After a week of biz travel, I arrived home to the results of a splurge over the weekend:


    Watanabe Nakiri, Henckel's Slicer (a gift from a forum member!), Gesshin 400, Gesshin 1000, diamond plate.

    Does anyone else feel a little guilty for tearing through the amazing wrapping job that Sara@JKI does?!

    Also, Kudos to the previous owner of the Nakiri for a very fine wrapping job there as well.

    Have lots of fun to pack into this weekend!

    One of my favorite things in recent years since becoming interested in knives is arriving at home to find a box full of goodies waiting for me. Feel like a kid during christmas all over again.

    For sure! it's even worse when you pick up locally and your goodies still get wrapped.

    Yup, first nakiri....and lots of veg around here--speaking of, have you acquired a taste for hing yet?

    Just spent a sec with a few potatoes and jalepenos...this is the first knife since my SIH that make me go, "wow, a knife can do that?" Amazing....and beautiful.

    Even my wife was astonished at the performance with potatoes. I hope I don't become a cleaver bigot like certain members on the forum!

    I gave two JKI knives to a friend as wedding presents. I didn't even bother to box them and wrap them - I just gave them with the JKI wrapping. No way they were going to get a nicer wrapping than they already had.

    Nice scores, and when you find a page in the book that you really like you can just slice the corner of the page off with a paper test

    I still love nakiris, and it was also my wife's for 'wow' knife. I think the lack of a tip made it feel less threatening, and she still uses that knife the most of all my knives. I don't use it as much as I used to, but when I do, it is a load of fun.
