Give Jon Broida at Japanese Knife Importers a call on Monday. He'll take the time to learn what is best for you. Jon doesn't upsell -he's talked me out of more knives I thought I needed, than knives I actually bought.

People who don't know it's a boning knife reach for mine to use as a petty because it's only 150mm and looks user friendly. One of the best knife bargains out there is the Tojiro DP honesuki at $79 delivered.
A while back I was a partner in a High Performance Work Team consulting firm. The first step was getting clear, committed and quantifiable expectations from the owners. What they're willing to spend, what's flexible and what's written in stone.   Those are shared with the staff along with complete transparency of actual costs, profits/loss customer feedback, and so forth so they can see why improvement is mandated. The next step is to assess to see how the staff is...
Kitten, You can stick to your guns and let the one star roll off your back and it'll eventually be a lone star among the good reviews. Or you can comment on it, explain why you don't carry Bud Lite, and maybe get into a pushing match with the OP and like minded beer drinkers.   Or you can carry BL, PBR, and a few others like them and people will buy them. If you're a good sales person, you can use them as gateway brews to craft beers. Some people will switch,...
