Jeees, I hate to sound like some fan boy defending his latest unseen internet purchase, but damn, this is truly an awesome knife.
Okay, maybe not if you need to hack off a limb or whittle a tusk, but if the redesign of something more appropriate for the dinner plate tingles your synapses, this knife rocks.
The handles fit and finish is pretty much flawless, and its connection to the blade completely sealed. Very nice unless you like a little fungal booster getting involved to help with the sculpting process.
Moving forward of the handle toward an otherwise flawless blade, its not all roses. On my example, really, WTF, it had to be my example..... one side of the choil for half an inch was a little..... Hay, sanding guy, message for djouu. I had to take a couple swipes with the 800 grit. No big deal, but don't be expecting me to cover next time you run off to dally the latest incarnation of.....
Anyways, with that scrap sordid bitchery trailing into etherial..... Okay, I'll get on with it ..... OMFG this thing cuts like no tomorrow. Its so friggen thin behind the edge, you can hardly see the bevel. Its not much thicker than a couple human hairs and that vanishingly thin bevel is so exquisitely shaped, the weak nuclear forces of whatever atoms are lucky enough to be in its presence, dissipates as if a deity was passing.
Feels very light, very nimble, a serious joy to cut with, enough so that my daughter said "Dad, for f#@$ sake, no one likes minced carrots." I said, "who talks like that, WTF, cant a man......".
I friggen love this knife, I really do. I shall sleep with it under my pillow tonight.
