My 1st JK is in production. Going through the Christmas season with young children I was reminded what true anticipation is. This was the first year that our oldest really got what was happening and his excitement and anticipation was genuine and intense. It reminded me that as I've gotten older I have fewer and fewer things that I really anticipate with excitement. When we want something (and can afford it) we just get it. No fuss, no waiting, no real anticipation. This knife feels different and it's not just the wait (2 months seems like a short wait for a handmade knife). Now I'm not going to say the arrival of my first JK ranks on the list of all time "firsts", but I am excited.
