Thank god it's sold out!!!!

Don't those damascus blades look incredible though? I understand it's a miniscule amount of vanadium(?) that's added to the blades to make the beautiful swirly marks.

Is there any downside to damascus steel? God I love the look of them...
Oh, you're freakin killing me here...

I'm moving in a month! I can't buy those! *curls up in a ball*

Ok, Chad...

I went to Amazon to order your book. Couldn't remember the title, so I searched for your name.

Your middle name isn't "Michael," is it?

Don't I wish. That's British fetish photographer Chad Michael Ward. I often wonder if he'd be willing to swap lives for a couple of days. I'm a decent photographer . All he would have to do to take my place is not cut himself.

Cool! MACs don't get the respect they deserve, probably because they don't have the marketing & distribution budgets of companies like Shun, Global or Wusthof. Professional cooks, however, love them. They are lightweight, reasonably priced, and hold a razor edge for a good long time, even under serious abuse. I believe the MAC Professional series MTH-80, even with it's recent price increase to $115 street price, is a hell of a bargain.
