    Sort of a silly question. Do you take your knives with you to cook at someone's house

    Life and home ownership has cut into my online time. Also my version of tapatalk has pooped out on me. Now am busy with my endless honey do's and sneaking in knife time, and getting my Yuk fixed and on the road. All of which have managed to keep me busy.

    Is a great plan but I was asked to not sharpen or make any for them because she knew my idea of dull is her idea of sharp. She doesn't want to cut herself.

    Price point has been discussed and noted that is a "sale price" as she is the first customer from Florida for me. The factor of setting a price when it was nap time after working all night had a lil to do with it. The rookie skills mindset also had a part in my underbid. Is a learning moment...
