We need your help (read:opinion)

I was hoping you guys could help us out... here are a few questions i have for everyone here...

First... on the subject of videos

What, if any, subjects do you guys think we are missing in our youtube video series?
I've got a list of things i want to get around to as soon as i have time, but its always helpful to hear from you guys since i dont always run into the same problems anymore.

And second, on our product lineup

We constantly have new product lines in various stages of development and testing.  I have some interesting things i'm currently working on, but i was wondering what gaps you guys see in our product lineup?  What kinds of things would you like to see in the future from us?
We cant promise anything, but most of the time we do our best to make things like this happen.  Our product development tends to take a bit longer than some of our competitors, but this is because i spend so much time testing and revising before i'm happy with what we have.  For anyone that's been here to our store, i'm sure you've seen all of the prototypes we have here... both knives and stones.  Again, we're constantly going through this process, but i was hoping you all might have some more insight into what would be interesting/fun/useful.

Thanks so much.

Hello Jon,

JKI is one of my only sources of high quality products from Japan. I really like how you are stocking products beyond knives. Recently I have realized how difficult it is to get quality basic cooking ingredients like soy sauce, mirin, and nigari (for homemade tofu). For soy sauce and mirin, there is a small selection of brands even at the specialty japanese markets and looking at the ingredient list shows these things are loaded with low quality food additives and other garbage. If you were to import quality products with real ingredients, I would happily buy them. The only other possible source of real soy sauce I have found is the kishibori soy sauce.

Thank you!
