Hello to everyone.
Name is Gilly 49 & I have been the shadows for years.
Firstly thanks to Mark, Susan & all who make this site awesome. Secondly to all who have put your knowledge in the forums. Thanks.
I knew beforehand what knife I was looking for a santuko. Mostly fits what I do in the kitchen slice & dice. Found what fits my needs with Kanehide PS-60 Santuko.
Again thanks for the selection of knives, extras and forums !

Hello all. My name is Dan, I’ve been pretty active on KKF, still am but I’d like to join up here as well. I’ve been a professional cook but since having kids I had to give that up. Now I own and operate two small family grocery stores in Seattle, if any of you are up this way give me a shout. Like all you guys, I love those knives! And I do some handlework with my free time. If you’d like to see some work I’m currently posting here.

I'm Paul, a long time forums lurker in Michigan, semi recetly created a profile, and just this weekend realized there was a introduction thread. Been a long time all things German (thanks to my German host dad) from knives to power tools to optics and more... But been slowly realizing the awesomeness of Jknifes, stones, and etc in the food world thanks to this forum and friends working in the industry. I am a home cook and have career as a professional musician who in highschool opted for music school over culinary school....After talking with different people from both professions at the time lead me to believe maybe the hours or lifestyle may have been a tad better - HA..... Anyways, love food, cooking, and fancy, sharp, pointy objects. Cheers everyone.

Hello to all!
My name is Dan. Been hanging out here for many years.
I’m just a home cook that loves Japanese knives.
I have 5 or 6 different knives, Takeda, Gesshin, M Carter ,Richmond AS and a few others.
Will be needing some advice and wanting to ask some questions so I decided it was time to join.

Hi Mark,
Thanks for the welcome and the help with the takeda decision.
Be on the lookout today for an email today about a Sasanoha 270.

Hi all,

My name's Tim. I'm on some of the other knife discussion boards but wanted to keep up with what's going on here as well. Not a pro, just a home cook who enjoys working with quality tools. In addition to slowly building up my collection I'm hoping to (at some point) try my hand at making and installing custom handles... one step at a time though!

Hi All, my name is Paul. I’m a home cook who lives in Toronto. Always wanted a Japanese knife. They are works of art and love that they are hand made. I have a very thin soft 8” chefs knife as my main knife for a long time. It was a hand me down and has no markings on it. Stainless steel with a western handle. Not much to look at but is a workhorse. I bought a Chan Chi Kee Chinese cleaver. Gorgeous cladding and laser thin. I’ve always had a curiosity for Japanese knives and am now finally going to dive in. Looking for a workhorse laser with good fit and finish.

I’m a passionate home cook. I do IT for a living bit always wanted to work in a professional kitchen.

Really like this forum and site. The knife reviews that Mark does are superb. Very professional and informative. Enjoying the posts and the forum.

Hi everyone my name is John and I am located on a lake two hours north of Toronto. I have been sharpening my western knives for ten years or so but have only recently become and covert to all things Japanese and sharp. One of the main reasons I have decided to jump in is to thank all of you for sharing your knowledge. Who would have thought that a bunch of people with so many razor sharp knives would be so kind. :lol:

Hi everyone, Martin here. I've lurked on this forum for about 4 years without posting (I never felt I had enough expertise....) and benefitted so much from members who gave their time and shared their expertise and passion. I've gradually replaced an odd assortment of Western knives and Miyabi with Japanese steel: Masakage Yuki and Koishi, Gihei Blue #2, Kato VG10. Really changed my perception of what a knife could do. Next up is probably a 240mm gyuto, since my current ones max out at 210. And perhaps a custom handle? I've made custom handles/scales for smaller folding knives but never for kitchen knives.

Hi, Kevin here. Been working in a kitchen for a few years and used cheap stainless beater knives until a friend got me into japanese knives. The difference is like night and day and this forum is really helpful with doing research so I can really find the knives to suit my needs.

Hello all, Mark directed me to the forum. I have been collecting and sharpening Japanese knives off and on for somewhere between 10-15 years now. Still very much learning. Good to be here.
