This show was packed with all sorta crazy, people talking and chatting about while the show was going on, stools set up in the middle of the aisles, arguments, people trading seats with empties and a 10 man group leaving all at once in the middle of the show (they should of brought diapers or some shit). But pretty interesting show overall on local Tibetian/Jiuzhaigou culture and traditions. Esp the singing.
I remember the first time Olivia telling me that she was going to be bringing culinary knives to a different level. It seems like such a long time ago. Her determination has definitely been an inspiration. With the personalities behind Tosho, it’s bound to showcase a different flavor of hand crafted knives locally and nationally. Tosho Knife Arts imports some of Japans most sought after hand forged steel from Konosuke-Sakai & Takeda Hamono + others. Being an owner of a Konosuke, the attention to details and feel are killer. If your not into all this hand made stuff and just want your knives crisply sharpened Ivan Fonseca will give you the right fix. He has been studying Japanese knives for over ten years using Japanese sword polishing/sharpening techniques. Tosho Knife Arts is finally open.
Olivia, Congratulations. Your charisma and knowledge is always appreciated.
