After we returned home from Neptune Oyster, we opened our anniversary gifts. R got me the Shun 8-inch chef's knife I've been drooling over for so long. Shun knifes are exquisite – they are individually hand crafted in Japan, razor sharp and unbelievably strong. They forged the same way samurai swords are. I like to imagine an ancient Japanese man in a loincloth pounding away at a piece of steel until my knife emerges (Think Uma Thurman in Kill Bill).

R also got me a beautiful cutting board. It is end-grain and made with Canadian larchwood. Each one is unique, due to the different grains of the wood. It's almost too beautiful to use.

I loved my gifts and was genuinely pleased, but not surprised as I had asked for the knife on my Christmas list. The next morning, he told me that he had another gift for me. I tore through the wrapping paper, not knowing what to expect (which is a rare feeling, as R is more predictable than gravity). The Shun 8 piece knife set emerged! I was truly stunned. I'm still marveling over it now.

I don't know what to do with my old knifes, I guess I should keep them around in case someone needs a knife, because they certainly aren't using the Shuns.
