I am not sure if this is the "right room" -- and I apologize if it's not -- but I wanted to introduce myself and say hello. In short, name is Bo, from NJ, I love to cook, know nothing about knives, but very interested in learning. I've had a few friends/family members give me some gifts (knowing I love to cook), so I have a couple of knives. Good, bad, I have no idea, LOL. However, like I said, I am very interested in learning and buying a few new knives. Thanks and looking forward to enjoying the forum!
