Any feedback, comments or reviews on the new Kohestu 210?

Handle F&F is nice, smooth handle, no gaps between handle/ferrule, handle opening is nicely filled in, but overall handle may be a tad short if you have bigger hands. Spine/choil are clean, no sharp edges, but aren't rounded that I can see, but may not really need it the way they are. Blade is nice and thin, nice convexing to it, too. Sharp OOTB, but I haven't gotten to use it yet. Very light.

Used mine today all day. Out of the box is decent. Good toothy edge. Holds it for a good while as AS should. Tim is spot on about the knife, though personally I would like the handle to be a little longer and not as wide. Very thin and very light. Easily making this a laser knife in my opinion. Haven't sharpened it yet or such but so far I really like it. This thing if all stays the course should prove to be a hell of a deal. Epically if they make it into a 240mm.

Good to hear first impressions are positive. How long is the handle? Thanks Aaron for giving me your input and recommendation on the Sakai Yusuke 240 before I bought it. What a great knife and good value. It's kind of a sleeper on the website. BB
