    Places to eat in Atlanta, GA

    My son (8) and I are heading for a father son trip to Atlanta and I was hoping for some good suggestions on places to eat. We're both pretty adventurous but trip is low cost so hole in the walls are welcome. Pizza, tacos, burgers? Any direction is appreciated.

    How the heck do I sharpen this thing?

    I have been on several forums in the past on a variety of subjects, and having done that I know what it can be like when a noob drops by and asks a huge question that (a) has an answer that is too big and intricate to dump in one post or (b) has been rehashed a thousand times before if one would...

    Checking in from Alabama

    Thought this was a good place to start by introducing myself. I'm a knife noob who's been working with low quality German steel for about 8 years and this year got a Miyabi that I really like. I mostly ended up here because I'm terrified of messing up the edge and from perusing for the last...
