Yeah, the Fujiyamas are forged by Y Tanaka and are now being sharpened this new guy, who apprenticed under Morihiro.

Not quite "on its way"; we're moving in less than a week so I asked to have it sent after that, to ensure it won't end up on the wrong doorstep and pilfered (we haven't had an issue with that, but I really don't want to risk it with this!). Then I also asked for a family pic of it with the others, which will actually delay it longer because of my sister's not being finished yet. But soon. It's right there...

What's a unit like that cost these days?

That one is right around $750. The kicker is that the steel is repurposed from the leaf spring of the Studebaker Champion given to my grandparents as a wedding gift, reforged.

I wonder if it's still dark.

The sun was up, when my alarm went off this morning.

Yeah, hot weather sucks. It changes everything.

Warm weather has many advantages. If it would only stay at 80 I could deal, but nooooooooooo it's got to sprint to 90, 95, 100!!! They can keep that nonsense.

The dew point here in Philly was nearly 70 at 6 am. Temperature supposed to hit 90. No thanks.

Better get your arm warmers out, and maybe a light jacket.
