I do get small cuts on my hand from the edges of my steel. I don't really care, and I'm not sure I have a file in my toolbox, so I've never done anything about it, but it's certainly a hazard. As for going to crazy lengths for pizza - I didn't mention the fact that when I got my steel in Albany, I took a bus from Manhattan there and back. It took a whole day! All of my roommates and my girlfriend think I'm a little unhinged too.
I wish I'd known about that place in Hagerstown. I'm from the Annapolis area and occasionally make trips back to Maryland to see my parents and friends who still live there. I would've been happy to pick up a thicker plate at that price, although lugging even the quarter-inch plate from Manhattan through the subway to my apartment in Brooklyn got to be a bit much.
