I guess I am going to have to figure out where you are located once you get up and running. I am in Newport Beach, but don't go around LA much.

I wish you and your store the best of luck.

Joy, that is a long drive on the 405 :-(

Still, one of these weekends will definitely make the trek up to see the shop.

Awesome! Where are you putting the big stone wheel for sharpening? I wish you the best, I will definately make it out before the end of the year.

Well I live about an hour away so I imagine I'll have to drop by once you're up and running and pick something up. Been thinking about grabbing a new chinese cleaver.

Are you going to sell used knives too or just new?

i've only been selling new up to this point, but honestly, i've never really thought much about it... that might be an interesting concept

I'm jealous. In my old age I was thinking about doing a small brick and mortar shop. But mine would be some old guy sitting behind the sharpening stones with knives piled up here and there, a layer of dust covering everything. I'd be pontificating about the young turks and the good ole days.

Via Google street view, I think I found your new store. Can I guess or do you want to still keep it a mistery?
