My FT is an awesome knife. The fit and finish is not great though. The core steel and the cladding are not quite the same height on the spine. The core is just a bit recessed compared to the cladding. It isn't a big deal, and I'm certain that a little time and sandpaper will solve it.

I can't think of a single thing about mine to complain about. I need to take it to the stones for the first time tomorrow if I can find the time. I used it tonight, but she is ready. It shouldn't shock me if the knife is on a different level after her first sharpening. I can only imagine what his AS offerings are like.

SNIPES <> This knife will reach whatever level you are capable of taking her to... her hagane is supernatural.

I have refrained from yet answering your earlier question because I want to add one more informational piece to this thread about the knife that will develop over more time. I will say that I have finished her progression with a Yaginoshima, and I have done my best to employ a roll per`se in my strokes throughout the entire progression... meaning I have tried rolling the bevel to follow the convex.. it is extremely pronounced, and its geometry is paramount to this knife's cutting acumen. I do not claim to be a sword polisher, but that's what this knife is.

I have spent years training myself to eliminate any rolling so it is interesting to practice. I might evolve into employing a micro-thinning, then the edge bevel, and then a blending thereof to recreate the convex, but this is working for now in what I believe to be a more traditional method... albeit void of a hanhan.

This is the best I can do to represent how I'm following the convex grind all the way to the edge...

Wow that looks amazing , how did you do that ? I see you widen up the bevel a bit, 50/50 asymmetry on both sides? around 10-12 degrees on edge? need to put my one on the stones, just dont know thats the best way for this knife and dont want to mess it up :)

The one thing you learn about Mel after hangin' around here for a while is that he does nothing half ass or half way, it's all or nothing.
