    So , I finally bit the bullet and ordered an anyang powerhammer (55#) , as expected with everything in down under it came with a premium (11k in aud ) Within few days I will be putting up 4 knives of mine ( yanagiba, san mai gyuto , Damascus gyuto and boning knife )to auction with as low as half of the original asking price as starting point and I will be also selling a shig , Burke San mai gyuto and other few gyutos , feel free to ask any questions or make reasonable offers for available knives , stay tuned .
    Thank you for your support

  6. Awesome to hear about moving aheaf with the power hammer.

    Pity to hear about those knives not going for asking. Was so temtped but alas happy wife, happy life has kept me away.

    Hope you can raise enough money, and now even more of a reason to pop into wine country

    No brother , I haven't had a chance to put them up , I had few people interested in mentioned knives . If I can I will post on auctions , " reasonable offer " seems to be grey area for many , if they don't sell I am happy to keep them for Sydney knife show , managed to pay the hammer off too btw
     
  12. That is great news.
     
  13. Good news Mert!
     
  14. Great to hear Mert... Though a lot harder to convince the wife to let me buy if they aren't on sale .

  15. Well... you we all know that it doesn't count without pictures, right? Mert, where are the pictures of your new beast?
     
  16. Easy solution. Just tell her it's on sale ;)
     
  17. That used to work for me, now it's more like you need to let one go before you buy another one.
