I was just starting to answer you when I heard a curse from the kitchen. I rushed in and saw my wife had blobbed a quarter of the mustard from a plastic jar on the almost sandwich she was making. I was grateful it wasn't the Soy sauce next to the plate that spilled. Seems when you call me at home, John, one of the kids might be yelling or gelling about something....busy place, situation normal.
So, the Prototype was absolutely wonderful except for the very very slight raised edge near the cho which made it impossible to use the blade as a cleaver, being just enough to prevent the blade flush on a chopping board.
I ground it off in no time at all. It was so little material that the metal on the blade was not even hot from the grinding wheel. I told Yangdu and waited. Last week she got ahold of me and said the Kamis were confused- what change did they need to make? I took the AK down to my friend and neighbor and he took some digital photos. Then the BirGorhka web page had problems and it wouldn't take. Sent it to Yangdu. The other day she told me the Kamis still don't know what is wrong; can I write it out for them?
Words Words Words. But I wrote three versions explaining about the edge needing to be flush on chopping surface. Now two blades are headed to America.
We will see. I think Real Soon. I have other good news; Kumar is back. Hooray! And the cut on Murali has healed and he's back. So now we'll get production.
