Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. Gotta love the huge quantities of great food and the good quality time with family and friends. I'll be roasting my family's turkey in my favorite cast iron skillet. I think I'm going to use my new pen knife to carve it just for fun. I'll post a picture after. Happy Thanksgiving to Yandgu, all at Himalayan Imports, and all the forumites far and wide! There is always a way to have a thankful point of view. Things could always be worse. Its time to focus on the good and not the bad for a while, even if just to brighten your own day. Chances are it will brighten others as well. I am thankful for the opportunity and the funds to acquire and experience these awesome blades. Very thankful for the laughs and encouragement I've received from this forum. I'm thankful that I am not alone in my HI virus infected condition. I'm very thankful that our kami friends are using their skills passed on from generations to create superior quality, hand forged blades. I'm thankful for all Yangdu's efforts making it possible to get them from the other side of the planet and put them into our hands. Many things to be thankful for this year. What are you guys carving your turkeys with? [Edit] Pen knife worked okay.
