My 2020 has been pretty lame, but thanks to not constantly buying new knives I've narrowed down the ones I really love.

Now I need to sell a couple knives and buy some stones. Any one know how I can get knife shipping boxes without buying new knives?
You can order priority mail boxes from USPS on their website and they will deliver them to you free, I like to use size #1095.

For me it's improving enough at hand sharpening so I can move on to my more expensive knives vs. just scratching up my wife's beater Henckel Classic 8" chef knife.
Put some wet/dry sandpaper on your bucket list. From 220-320-400-600. That stuff is like Dutch courage for making mistakes on your better knives.

I had good time with that Tad, but I basically sold all my lasers (I kept a Takamura which is a small santoku and a HD2 which is technically not a laser) and I’m not a fan of white 2 steel in general. The Tad itself is a good knife in that category. If I were to buy a Tad again, I’d choose a 270 inox.

As someone who has handled a lot of livers in my life, albeit animal livers, you can definitely tell the difference between healthy and unhealthy livers. Granted, not many of our farm animals are brewing illicit moonshine in the fields, but as a general principle, the crap you put in your body really does impact your flesh.

Also, alcohol is tasty, although for me, the refreshing and satisfying taste of fresh, cold water when you're super thirsty is something that can't be beat.

I thought about this some:

Bigger living quarters with some kind of workspace outside of food, resting or sleeping areas.

Resin bonded diamond stones.

WH 240mm Gyuto w/Machi (no stainless).
