Oh, serious time? Move to the bush (kinda bush, anyway).
Were aiming for around February or March to find somewhere else. For now just staying put with everything being so up in the air and the holidays coming up.

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 agree, water's where it's at. Actually, I fortify my fresh, cold water with a bit of grains for healthy carbs, and steep some aromatics in there for extra flavor. 🤷‍♂️

Panda is talking about a Mizuno ks blue dx that is not a honyaki. It is a nice knife. I went out and replaced it with another one from the same batch. I have had three so far and @panda has the pick of the litter.

Thanks. Part of my bucket list was to sell off some knives and zero in on what I like. I haven't sold much yet but I also haven't bought anything because I put myself on time out. I've been thinking about pick up a Mizuno the last few days as a bday gift to myself.

Has there been a big variance in the 3 of them? What made @panda 's the pick of the litter?

Unofruently mine didn't go so well:
- Finally ordered a custom knife, now that's in limbo (that other long thread, now locked)
- I did make a knife block I'm mostly very happy with (parring knife area can use some finishing)
- I did get a Konosuke SKD .. pretty stellar knife
- No Mazaki, or other wishlisted knives .. due to first item.

The Mizuno KS has been pretty consistent to me so far. But it’s a new line. All the Mizuno gyutos are nice grinds. I would choose based on overall length, profile and weight. I think the KS line is thinner than hontanren if memory serves. The custom handles are not worth the expense IMO. Hope that helps.

reason miz ks is my favorite knife: the grind and edge retention while still feeling great on stones. it has incredible food release while still has good ease of cutting.
thing it could be better: profile and grind at the tip
