    Pls stop. You're either our most enthusiastic greeter (which is entirely ok) or running up a post count (sry, my cynical self thinks this is more likely).

    Once again appealing to the puter nerds. Have had Amazon Fire 8 for over a year. Slower than death. Don't like interface, gmail sux, getting to kkf sux, fb kinda sux. Couple hours of reading will kill battery. I've added Chrome thingy to it but still - only thing that's easy on it is...

    SOLD HSC Zwear, 240 x 55mm, 238g Gyuto

    I like the knife, love the steel. But I've found I prefer the 48-50mm tall 240's and this one is a bit tall for me. Yes, Harbeer's Zwear edge lasts almost forever. I've not had occasion to sharpen the knife. New was 650ish, asking $600, Priority and insured to your door. And yes my picture...

    SOLD Carter SB Deba - 180mm

    I bought this knife here awhile ago and find I prefer my Toyama for the 180mm length. Rare for Murray to do a true single bevel, it's a nice, deft knife. I've not sharpened it since I've had it. Lightly stropped on felt to crisp the edge. This is thread I bought it from: WTT - Carter Kata...

    Some help with a PIF?

    One of our members that has been on hiatus has recently contacted me - seems life has given him a big kick in the nuts. He was active here, I've bought from him, sold to him, yada, yada. Good guy. He's now knifeless (except for a Kiwi) and looking to start over in a lot of things, and asked...

    Withdrawn Notta Toyama

    Thread has been moved to abeyance while it is sorted out. "Toyama" in the description will not stand it the knife is not a Toyama ( or at least a Wat). Sorry Ma - I don't believe you're being intentionally duplicitous but it does misrepresent the product.
