I'm getting my dad a Yoshihiro 240mm stainless gyuto (finish sharpened by Dave) along with a couple Sani-Tuff boards; one small and thin one for daily use and a big heavier one for when he's breaking down larger cuts for sausage making.

Will you be getting anything cool for your family or friends?

I am re-handling a knife for a brother in law, but nothing else knife related.

I'm giving away a couple of paper knives and a few things I'm grinding up. I'm actually also giving away a Yoshihiro finish sharpened by me. ;)

I intend to give my wife a gyuto from one of the forum's craftsmen if he gets it done in time.

Trying to find a decent cutting board or two on the smallish side. Would luke to give my dad a boardsmith but they only use smaller, currently very thin plastic, "boards". Looking for some / one thinner, any suggestions?

I'm sending my cousin a big stag handled W2 hunter as a belated wedding/Christmas present. I expect venison and waterfowl in return at some point.:biggrin:

I gave TK59 a pair of socks
What? I think this needs clarification. Somehow I let this dude talk me into letting him BORROW a pair of socks, an expensive pair, at that. He returned them today. I think I'm going to burn them, lol. My toes do a turtle thing everytime they come anywhere near those socks.

Definitely, a knife for my sister, and a good friend wants one for his wife as well. I'm plodding along, in hopes they will be ready in time!

I got each of my seven guys in the kitchen a knife...kept it to $100 each budget, so nothing too fancy.

Definitely not, no one in my family or friends really seems to appreciate a good, sharp knife. They also do not want any help or pointers to make their cutting technique work better for them...always get the response "I don't care".

Eff them, looks like they getting coal in their stockings.

Oh no! Was it Carter or Cartier? Now I am not sure.

I have always had trouble understanding what women want!

That's because the translation from what's on their mind to what they say don't match up.

Got my steward a 210 shirogami tojiro. Mom and sis are getting 210 western konosuke hd's. And I'm trying to find my wife something really nice in 210 as well. I figure all these ladies would prefer or be more comfortable with a 210. Included also are sayas for all and initial bevel setting and sharpening.

As of Thanksgiving one of my 240 gyuto is on permanent loan with one of my nieces; another 240 gyuto will be going to a different niece before Christmas. They are the cooks for their families and need to use a "big" knife sometimes. :biggrin:
