Hi There! Never posted much elsewhere, and haven't even been reading in months, but I really appreciate all the advice that various "knife nuts" have posted all over the Web. They led me about a year ago to acquire a Tanaka Ironwood gyuto and nakiri, and in all seriousness my diet has improved because I look for excuses to use the knives. I am eating more healthfully and tastefully because of the enjoyment I get from using a good knife.
As finances allow I will be interested in a figured wood saya for at least the gyuto, so I'll be looking for direction about that!
I've spent quite a bit of time lurking and reading and learning on the other forums out there, but just recently have started to get active with posts, photos, and videos. I'm excited to finally see a place start form the ground up as a KITCHEN knife forum. I couldnt believe that the domain was still available- I guess it just shows how under served this community had been in relation to the greater knife world.
man glad to see so many people joining up......i gotta get me a new avatar though.....i just tried to upload one from the stock images on my coputer....i don't have any pictures on here!!!!!!!!!......ryan
Haven't been very active on the other forums lately as other hobbies have taken precedence over my knife-nuttery, but I'm happy there's a new place for us. And glad to see so many new ventures from Mr. Martell -- when does he sleep? I'm sure these forums will be great.
