You have angered Lord Mazaki-bot.
What is the knife between the shun and saji?
That’s Garner’s Mazaki.
I'm in maastricht, so I'm pretty close. We can drag @Carl Kotte and @Matus along. Who else in Germany and/or the Benelux would like to join?
@Michi this is all your doing, now I really want to have a meet up
@Garner Harrison can you tell us about that mazaki? Profile looks way different than any I’ve seen, nice high shinogi too.
You know I’m game too! Do you bring the hummus to this event or do you want me to do it? And please, don’t forget @childermass!
I'll make it with the classic fried lamb
There's so many members within this area, I wouldn't know where to start
We all can stop any time we want to, remember?
@Garner Harrison has been (only mildly obsessively) working on that knife

Isn't the whole point of the forum to pretend everyone else is an enabler so we don't have to feel bad about our knife addictions?
Looks like a really nice time. Kudos for the get together.
Any future meetups really need Michi's dips, I recommend that you fly him to Germany.
Great to see you guys had a good time!
count me in, I would really enjoy this.
Next meet-up will have citrus-cured salmon. Just sayin'…
Well hopefully It's not during March... when I'll be braving international travel.
Plan was to do it while @Kippington's knife is here. Fingers crossed that you can make it!
I’m trying my best to stay incognito ...
Actually after looking at that stack of knives all laid out I couldn’t stand up for about fifteen minutes.
Here’s me in NZ .... with a REAL “bike”
There’s a saya in the making...
@Danzo Its a different style of grind for a Mazaki, its one of CleanCuts Hamaguri grind Mazaki's so it has a convex grind to it. The shinogi you see on it is kinda weird as doesnt have a hard shinogi line.
Im planning to get the knife all prettied up and possibly let it go as I dont think I really enjoy workhorse knives >.>
Oh lord Mazaki lovers dont kill me..
All I read is there's a Meetup at JKI... And Michi is bringing Salmon.
Yeah, you got the gist of it!
Wow! So, let me guess, about 300 kg worth of bike?
Next time in Canada, I'll hit you up for a ride!
Actually closer to 450kg. loaded. I spent five of my winters touring on Harley’s in NZ. Never made it to Aus or Tassie. The Kiwi’s told me to skip Aus because there is no way I could understand the heavy accents. Logged over 200,000 kms in NZ. Toured NA with the same bikes when I was back in Canada. Was a great run. Here’s a pic of my current bike ...
You seem somewhat younger and a bit shorter on this picture. Benjamin Button?
I wish ... that’s my son!!! Part of my NZ adventures and brought to life when I was 62. Imagine gearing up to go to Sturgis in July, 2010 when I got an email .... “remember me ... I’m pregnant ... and you’re the father”. He’s why I don’t sell my knives. He’s as crazy about knives, sharpening, and Harley’s as I am. My knife collection is destined to go to him when I pass.
