Yeah Jeff, all of the Kyocera stuff is being closed out. Many of the hand held sharpeners are going too. I'll keep a couple of them but there are too many.

Please, for the love of all things sharp, get rid of any carbide sharpeners you might carry! :P lol

I know a lot of people love them, but those little monsters are EVIL!

Ok... so maybe that's just my personal opinion... ;)

I was thinking I know they're readily available elsewhere, by why not stock some small kitchen towels or wiping cloths/rags specifically to wipe down knives while prepping?

A lot of these you find in stores are a mystery til you use them and realize they aren't very absorbent and just smear whatever liquid is on your blade around instead of removing it, or they're too absorbent and get soaking wet fast. Many don't hold up to constant washing and drying in the laundry(for home use, although I know, I know, they're cheap enough to toss frequently haha) and some fall apart too quickly just using them. And quantity can be an issue. Some only come in big industrial count packages, others not enough in a deal price.

So through some polling you can narrow it down to a few brands and types that people stand by and just carry those.

Just a thought. :)

I've used the Messer Elite and San Moritz series and agree they are the best of the Germans. Unfortunately the rest of the japanese offerings on CKTG are just better than any of the German knives. Tough decision to drop a nice line like Messermeister. If they're not selling though, they got to go. May have to change the name to JapaneseChefKnivesToGo. :P

I could see how the publicity of Shun, Mac and others direct traffic from search engines to the CKTG site. This could also hold true for the Global line...too bad they suck. How are the Dojos doing? With so many new offerings I don't see as many suggestions for dojo as an affordable alternative. I suppose the sales figures will determine that decision.

On the bright side, at least there aren't a shelf full of Calphalons collecting dust.
