I will be most probably coming (say 95% chance) unless something major comes up.

Looking forward to seeing all of you!

Re: Hosted Makoto Sakura SG2 Gyuto 240mm passaround

Re: WTS Syungo Ogata 240 mm gyuto with custom handle

Last offer before I decide to keep it:

for $240, you get the Ogata and a basswood strop loaded on both sides with the diamond compounds (Richmond diamond paste) of your choice: 1.0 micron, 0.50 micron, 0.25 micron (and of course no compound if you decide so).

Re: A leap forward in knife design

Jeff, your comment won the Internet. Again! :lol:
