Hello all!

I was a PCF and chiptalk lurker years ago. I fell in love with the Samurai Palace chips and through a stroke of dumb luck was able to acquire a set locally. I remember my friends and family thinking I was crazy as I went on a hunt for mineral oil and a shoe polish kit.

Life happened and time passed, then I came across my old set and wondered if anybody even still cared about chips anymore. I came back and was excited to find the chipper community still thriving. This place is insane! And I want in!

Sign up, turn off brain, open wallet. Let's go!

So hello from Canada! And thank you for reading my introduction.

Glad you found your way here.
We are pretty fortunate to have a number of Edmonton area members.
The more knuckleheads the better.

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody!

I got pretty lucky years ago on that one for sure. The set is a little bit schizophrenic with chip distribution so I'm hoping to add to it. From what I've seen in the classifieds that may be a bit of challenge though, hahaha.

word to your mother
She says word back Mike.

Yeah, 1k and 5$ chips are near impossible. Think I'm going to have to offer double market value for every other denom to get someone to part with them, however probably worth it for samurais.

Beauties!

I don't have any fracs or NCVs in my set, hopefully I can stumble across some on here.
Do you have a set? If so, we could work out a deal for a rack of fracs for some 5 or 1K chips, DM me if there is some interest. Don't have any NCV's sorry.

I've seen a couple pictures of your 1Ks and I think they might be a different color than mine.
It may just be the lighting, or the fact that mine could use an oil, but I don't think so.

BCC color consistency FTW...

And I dunno what salt water reef keeping is, but it sounds expensive.

Not sure, BCC color consistency sure isn't great. I haven't oiled mine though. If you want to part with those, message me.

As to reef keeping, here is an older, but amazing reef to give you an idea. https://reefbuilders.com/2015/03/12/masanao-shibuyas-sps-reef-tank-bordering-perfection/

If you think 5K mirrorless cameras with 3K lens are expensive, well reef keeping will put it to shame.
