Anyone have thoughts on performance comparison between the TKC and Swedish AEBL Damascus? Been chatting with Adam about the TKC, which I own in 210 which isn't quite enough knife for me and I've been weighing the idea of grabbing it in 240 when available. However, I was curious what some of the points of differentiation in performance might be (steel and handle aside) between the 2. Thanks in advance!

Chip, they're both thin blades. The Kikuichi is probably a bit thinner overall. How that translates into actual cutting performance I don't know.

F&F on the Kikuichi Swedish Warikomi Damascus (AEB-L) is top notch w/very nice handles.

Swedish should be thinner behind the edge and lighter. Also more flexible. Runs a bit long.

(I and seemingly a few others have a sneaking suspicion that the Goko Damascus was a lower fit and finish clone of this knife, for what it's worth.)

CHIP <> The TKC <--link, in hand, feels like a much tougher knife. As a heavier knife, as a yo-handled knife, it quite simply has a more substantial feel to it with a more rearward weight bias.

The Kikuichi Swede <--link is not "probably thinner overall", it is absolutely thinner overall. In fact, it is one of the thinnest - if not the thinnest - line on the site.

Performance wise, the Swede performs as one can expect an absolute laser to perform while the TKC, of which is no pig, is so well loved for its versatile abilities afforded by retaining some steel for the grinders to instill some personality into.

CHIP <> If that helped, it was my pleasure to offer.
