Inspired by finally getting my knives up on the wall, I thought it might be fun to have a How it started, how it’s going thread. if you’ve got pics of humble beginnings and current status, share them here!

I’ll go first:

How it’s going (16 months later): let’s say the bug bit me pretty hard.

Left is how it began once upon a time. Right is early 2020. Sold some and bought others. Don't have pics of what it's at now in 2022 but it ain't healthy. I blame all of you people. Or rather, a few specific people. Kept the Miyabi though :)

No. They were purchased from a guy on Etsy. He was great, sent me a bunch of photos with wood options and was very communicative all along the way. He can do anything you want custom. Not the cheapest, but not bad. $150 each for 30 inch boards, which is similar pricing to others I was looking at.
