Wow, that shipped fast. After playing around with my new knife I thought id post a few comments. First, I love the 250 size, great length, plenty of knuckle clearance and all without feeling bulky. It balances right on the pinch grip spot so it already feels like an extension of my hand. I can see instantly why people live this profile, rocking and pushing practically on its own while still keeping an enormous flat space for chopping. The thinner tip flew through onions without any resistance and with more use may reveal itself as my favorite feature. The steel doesnt seem too reactive, I tried forcing a banana patina and 20 minutes gave little reaction. I havent had a chance to sharpen it yet because it arrived very sharp ootb. Overall, I highly recommend this site and this knife, I read so many positive reviews I had to see on my own if its legit. Mark has a cult following for a reason. Thank you for the versatile knife and pleasant experience, im now equipped for finesse and brute force.

Thanks so much! I'm really happy you enjoy the knife and glad I took the risk in making it.

Just sharpened the sab for the first time, kept a pretty good edge for the week only honing it on a ceramic rod and just put it to the stones. With half the amount of passes compared to the wustof formed a burr very quickly. With all due respect to how it came ootb it got sharper than ive seen any knife ive used. The more I use this knife, the more I love it, I cannot express how highly I recommend it to people especially at the price point, thanks again for making it. Out of curiosity, what risk do you speak of?

Most people who want to own a sabatier... will buy a sabatier. 52100 might also deter some buyer along with the 250mm, it's a large knife for some people (as Sab's naturally are)

Me personally I would jump on this, however I'm waiting to find a garage sale Sabatier that I can restore to it's former glory.

Mmmm garage sale finds. Goodluck with that! I got a beat up one off ebay and have done a lot to it. Still prefer the Artifex in 52100 over it ;)
