Over 40!!! (and we're not talking about age)

Today, Sara and I (well mostly Sara, because I was preparing for Passover) organized all of the knife maker contacts we've collected over the past few weeks. We've been researching everything that came across our screens for about 1 month now, but until today I had not realized how many makers we had contacted. OVER 40!!! We've been in contact with over 40 knife makers in Japan. Our files just keep growing. And the knife makers cover a wide variety of knives... very highly refined to rustic, expensive to relatively inexpensive, huge names to ones so small only a handful of people have ever heard of them. There is a lot of talent out there and it is very exciting for us to be searching it out for you.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know... OVER 40! That's right... we've contacted over 40 knife makers in hopes of bringing you the best. Hopefully you guys like what we have coming this way.
