    Time for an intervention

    Maybe not the normal kind, but two things have struck me profoundly in the last several months. First, when I moved I realized how many knives I have. It's a lot more than when I moved to Tejas nine years ago. The second, when looking at my blade related purchases in the last eighteen months, despite my belief that there weren't many, there were far more than I thought.

    Is there a Japanese and carbon steel recovery group? I might need that number....

    Step one is to send me these tokens of your addiction.

    I hear you in the last 2 months ive spent 4ish k on knives, which is a large chunk of my paycheck. I honestly don't even know how it happened, really gotta stay off the forum when I'm drinking.

    Hahaha friends living over there, Japanese knife vendors that speak English, and translators for the shops that don't...I clearly have a problem

    P.S. When I say translators I don't mean google, I mean translators by profession

    I made a decision that I will have no replication and limit my stuff to ONE knife block. And I got to say it's very very hard. Have a couple to hit bst. Then it's one for one. One in one out.
