My 3rd trip to Japan has begun. I'm sitting in Ohare waiting to board my flight to Tokyo and then on to Niigata. I'm going to share pictures and videos on Instagram since it's so easy to do compared to the forum. But I'll be posting about my trip as I do my visits here as well. Once I get back I'll post the videos and photos on this page.

It should be fun! I've never met these blacksmiths in Sanjo City, even though I've been doing business with some of them for years. Hopefully I'll get some knife making lessons and further my education a little.

Sue and the crew will be holding down the fort while I'm away. They don't need me anyway. Hahahah

After you eat the inflight meal, ask them to send your compliments to the chef. :)

First day was a tour of Tojiro factory and their brand new show room and then we went to a 130 year old sake brewery and took a tour and had many samples. Then we went to a fish market on the Sea of Japan and ate some sashimi and checked out some weird looking fish for sale. In the evening the president of Tojiro took me to dinner and tried to kill me with food. He's my age and he was astonished at how much business we do with 2 full time and 3 part time people. He's got a staff of about 60 employees and they're expanding into a new factory next year. We set up a yearly order for several of our best selling skuas so we should be getting a regular monthly supply. I'll post some pictures and videos soon.

...maybe the Tojiro PM steels?

I probably should have asked that a few days ago.

Mark, I admire your fortitude. The trip sounds wonderful, but I know how tiring the Asia travel can be. The fact that you managed to remain functional during the final evening dinner is commendable. Enjoy the rest of the journey, and have some sashimi for me.
Tom
