I'm finding it's a lot worse than I first thought.
For example, when I replaced my computer, I was told that allI had to do was to re-attach the cable and I was good to go. Yikes, I cannot get into Outlook Express, this morning the computer told me I did not have cable access and now "girls in my area" want to meet me.
Granted these were simple repairs, but it's like losing the wardrobe of all of your comfortable clothes and replacing everything. Yeah, the stuff "looks" the same, but it all feels so different. And my typing skills got rusty in the past +2 weeks.
As for knife related issues, I sharpened two Shun santokus this week. Both of them had the stamp "Kai" under the traditional logo.
I do not know what that means.
Did Shun get bought out? Has the alloy changed? Has the manufacturing process changed?
