Re: Tim Johnson built me the perfect knife.

Hey Rob, thanks for posting this! Rob and I did pour over every detail of knife design we could think of.

Re: Show Your Home Kitchen!

my parents gifted me one of those stainless steel overhead racks you can mount on the wall. Its been great hanging our pans and wine glasses. We have also decided to do away with the cabinets but dont really have a plan yet. Looking forward to seeing some of these ideas.
