I started to use Japanese Natural stones and rare knives because i wanted to know much more about them and wanted to share my knowlige.
Starting of JNS website was mostly dived by sharing knowlige about Natural stones and make them more available for reasonable prises to us western costumers
But now with many bad events i started to doubt how much i really want to share
I can see now how Dave struggled about it in old forum. You really want to be very open and share all info with people just to get take advantage of by other sellers or some that want to become a seller !
They try to take all the hard work you have done, for research, try 1000 of different solutions and spend 100 000th. off bucks.
And sell all much cheaper by using my experience without using they own knowlige at all !! It is just example
Also i get many questions from some of my costumers that i can not just answer anymore, like: where do you buy your stones ?? Where can i buy them in Japan when i go there ? where can i buy Shigefusa, is this stone
from other seller good or bad, and many many more ...... I get them every day and now it seems like i have to be more and more careful of what i am saying.
Very sad and very bad for our community. Now i undestand how some people take money to log in to they website. I see also it is not only me that is more careful but many other Vendors on this forum and i now undestand them 100 %
So please from now on unfortunately Understanding my Limits and what i want to share
Also please make your comment here if you have some good ideas or advise !!
