This is my current lineup on the wall, with more randos in a drawer.Welcome to the forums.
Thinking about it, Iguess I'm kinda surprised that your handle was still available too.
Do you have any nice knives to show off?
Nice to have another pro sharpener/ex chef on the forum. So many rabbit holes to go down in this place, some really well informed opinions (occasionally) can be found (if you hunt and hunt)I am a career knife sharpener and former kitchen professional from Portland, OR. I'm happy to finally engage with this site (what took me so long?) and see what y'all are up to.
This is a username I've been using on other platforms for years, so I'm not just being cheeky here. I genuinely hoped for this name, and somehow got it!welcome!
maybe i just like punishing users, but i think it makes sense to blacklist generic usernames like this at registration (knife, blade, gyuto, santoku, nakiri, whetstone, shapton, etc).
not saying you should change your name. you snagged it fair and square!
but i would have pre-empted it if i were the admin.
