Although it’s said that giving a knife as a gift severs a friendship, that didn’t stop Jim from presenting me with this one last night. (If I give him a coin as “payment” for the knife, that should hold off the bad luck and we can remain friends.)
I’ve often admired his collection of beautiful, antique Japanese steel knives and I love to help make dinner in his kitchen just so I get to use them. My knife is new, flat tipped, double bevelled along its 7 inch blade, and ever-so-slightly curved for chopping vegetables. It has a good weight and balance. I’m looking forward to wearing in the handle and gently reshaping the blade to my stroke as I use it.
Thank you, Jim.Posted by kuri at August 24, 2005 08:34 AM
