  1. I was in the industry for a while. I have used Henkel, Wusthof, Shun etc. I use Wusthof Classic knives almost exclusively. Hold an edge well, and have lasted me decades.
  2. The last 3 boxes sold on BR for $750+. They were not the Wolters edition of 2004 that you have. Yours is worth slightly more.
  3. What a great spot! I spent some time there a few years ago.
  4. 1. Yes. 2. Vapor barrier 3. I would go with Honduran Mahogany over Spanish cedar. Same humidity properties, less aromatic. You may find that going with Spanish Cedar for the entire lining and shelves will be overpowering.
  5. Gold Medal. Hands down. Absolutely love these! Followed by Mercaderes and LGC Inmensos.
  6. I really like it! I hope everyone is getting the Sasquatch option.
  7. Yes. I've seen a number of these 'vintage' watches available at the flea market in Havana.
  8. Perhaps someone here has a 1969 band that can be hi-res scanned. I'd be interested in a shirt also.
  9. Thanks for the post. We are insane busy at my work too! (OH&S at a large grocery chain) Stay home if you can people. Flatten the curve.
  10. Nice haul! I've always found the shop beside El Aljibe to be super sketchy - They had multiple boxes of 2009 Monte 2's...with the new post 2013 bands on them, they always have discontinued boxes available, HTF's, etc.
  11. WOW! Please send a pallet or two my way. I can't imagine getting it that cheap. Especially for fillet. Here in Vancouver it is $375/kg for A5 Striploin!! My two favourites are bone in ribeye or a fillet.
  12. $57?!? Were these purchased from a friend who works in the factory?
  13. DAMN! I just got home from Havana 4 hours ago. I hit most of the LCDH's, with the exception of the Libre. Hopefully some FoH'ers manage to get a few!
  14. I will be in Havana Nov 11-19. Hopefully I will be able to meet up with some of you during that time.
