Zen and The Art of Knife Maintenance

First stop on a day-trip to New York this weekend: Korin Trading Company. The Knife Master was in the house and we had some steel in need of sharpening.

The staff displayed a level of customer service commensurate to the quality of their goods, which is to say very fine. One could spend a ton of money here if judgment were put on hold.
