    It's official -- the ECG is scheduled for Sunday, April 7.

    It will be at my house in Alexandria, Va again this year.

    There will be a dinner the night before; location TBD (we've had great dinners at Zaytinya the last 2 years; this could be Year 3).

    Food, drinks, knives. What's not to like?

    If you have not been to an ECG at my house please contact me via PM and provide me with an email address so I can send you my address and more info prior to April 7.

    If all of the 'maybes' come through we will have a great assortment of home and pro cooks, up to 4 knifemakers, a pro sharpener or two, a handle maker and a steel expert.

    If you want to attend a dinner on Saturday evening (April 6), please let me know. It is at the tail end of the Cherry Blossom Festival so I have to act soon for a DC venue -- especially Zaytinya. Otherwise, it will be something more low-key in NoVa.

    ECG is in 5 days! If you are on the fence I will be happy to push you over! :D

    Well, that didn't suck.

    We had 37 total, although a couple could not make it until most people were already gone. It was a great day!

    I would post pics, but sadly I did not take any. I did not even make the rounds of the 7 tables that were overloaded with knives!

    A couple people took a lot of pics, so once I lay my hands on some of those I will post.

    Butch, and he brought his friend knifemaker Sam S (Sam does really do kitchen knives). Nick and Zach from Monolith in Charlottesville. Derek from District Cutlery (nee DCSharp); those guys are starting down the road of making some of their own.

    sam was blown away by the people the knives and awestruck by the food. for him the chance to see and handle makers work he has been following for years was a true gift and learning experience. i had a blast as aways getting to talk to everyone (and eating the finest foods around)
