Re: Okada BBW Sword

My finger is hoovering over the buy button on this one. I would have to sell something, but I really like my lineup right now. Dammit, what to do?

I have to many knives, to many synthetic stones and to top it off I'm not even a good cook. So why not get started into naturals so I can get to many of those too! Then I will have to much of everything to cook my shitty food with!
Sounds oddly familiar.

Re: Ever wish you could buy old naturals?

My favorite finisher came from a retired barber in japan. Unknown mine, unknown strata, 100% awesome and $40 + shipping. There are jewels to be had in this endeavor and not knowing the mine keeps the cost down.

Re: Blade Show 2018 Atlanta

First day early entry seems to be the time to go to me. You can definately spend three days there but if you are interested in kitchen knives only, you can skip 80% of the booths. I don't have a budget for the show but whatever I spend, I gotta sell. I can do this in one day. Things sell fast so ear...
