    I moved from CT to NOLA about 2.5 years ago. It was supposed to be for like 2.5 months. Only brought my work kit with me. Back at my parent's now to bring some stuff back to my new home. A bunch of clothes, shoes, misc crap, whiskey and all of these guys. Reunited and it feels so good.

    Cautionary Tale

    Posting this to get feedback from other vendors who may have read Marc's "Cautionary Tale" thread about his dealings with Dave. I am considering removing the thread as I believe Marc's claims are unfounded and axe grinding. As all/most/some of you have been subject to member scrutiny that...

    F/S: Gengetsu, Takeda, Pierre, Del

    Sorry for the picture quality, cellphone and the lighting wasn't cooperating. Can get more tmrw. All prices include shipping and paypal fees. These don't get much use and I would rather have them get some use than not. If I have any original boxes for these, I have no idea which ones they...

    Japan Residents?

    Is there anyone out there who lives in Japan that could help me with a non-knife (other collection/obsession) related purchase/transaction? Pretty simple, the company just doesn't ship to the US. Thanks!

We used to have a pretty standard and simple rotation of items, but I have a pretty long leash for interesting side projects so I have been trying to up our charcuterie game. I...

    Just kidding! Dave is still working on those...but my set is done. :D I got tired of waiting so I ordered my own, one from Michael Rader and one from Pierre Rodrigue and they both ended up being finished nearly at the same time. The Rader is the aforementioned 12" W2 hollow ground...

    Shun Blue

    From Chris Cosentino's Twitter: Shun Blue. Shun knives, made out of unspecified Blue steel, in a japanese yet slightly westernized design. Also, nickel plated (it appears), because everyone loves shiny things. The "pasta knife" modeled after a sobakiri should be a hot seller at Williams &...
