    What do you do when you're broke and waiting between interviews?

    As some of you know, I have been out of work the last few months. Almost everyday I do 2-3 Interviews. I'm on the subway 3-4 hours a day and 2 times a week I do 10-14 hour working interviews.

    Anybody, got a Kato I can borrow?

    Anybody, got a Kato I can borrow or any other heavy chef knife? I want to compare a few things and see whats what. Prefer one that hasn't been overly thinned as that would defeat the purpose. Thanks.
