After witnessing what happened with the WTB for a DT ITK and learning Mario's profile and shape has changed from his knife that I recently purchased,
I am itching to get either one of them:
I am interested in a decent condition DT ITK AEB-L or a Mario Ingoglia's (assume cpm154) such as this one :wink:

or http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/8224-CPM154-260mm-gyuto?highlight=mario
I'd like either a 270mm Gyuto or a 270mm tall suji (for Mario's) but will consider shorter length as well.
I prefer to have the knife with a saya.

Hopely I get to see one before this impulse subsides.

Thanks.

Matt, pm replied. ^^

Haha, I love traditional too and have quite a few carbon knives.
I just like to try stainless for the time being. ^^

Yeah, just say what you want and it appears. Much different than posting and selling in a matter of minutes :-)

This is definitely a better way to get whAt you want but also a highway to break your bank.
I am getting a Mario but it does not satisfy my curiosity for DT aeb-l. ^^
I have to resist this temptation but anyone with a killer 270 DT ITK aeb-l with a saya before I recover my sanity??

Kalaeb certainly has some interesting options, eh?

On Mario's list, and have a DT ITK which I love. It will be interesting to see how they compare.

i almost feel like this should be made a sticky. at one point or another almost everybody should test drive, or buy an itk. lol.

Lol, non of the pieces in my collection are pieces that I would actively sell, I just like them all too much. However, I am making an effort (albiet not much of one) to reduce the amount of knives I have. When an opportunity comes up like this one it helps make my decisions easier. I just packed it up and cried a little. Its a great knife and I hope it gets used like crazy.

Orange,
I might be confused here, so I'll ask- did you just get 2 Mario knives? One from this thread and another that was sold a couple days ago on different posting?

If so, lucky bastard

Yes, that's the picture and I did not know before that I am a lucky bastard. :laugh:

Thanks. I am still hungry for more though. ^^

I was only a white and blue steel boy but,
when I experienced stainless steel folders, it changed my perception about the sharpness of stainless steel.
Mario's CPM154 is my first (excluding Wustoff and Henkel) ss and I am quite happy with it.

I'm interested in hearing what you guys have to say about deburring Mario's CPM154. I had a blade of cpm154 in the past (of lesser prestige) and I found it to take a fine edge, but it was a soulless mother to deburr :viking: I have my suspicions that it was a less than optimal HT that was the culprit...

I have never had any issues with deburring, at least with Mario's CPM154, but its the only one I have used in that steel. I just do a edge trailing stroke on my stone followed by a felt stop.

After I got a Mario's CPM154 last week, I only had a chance to take it to stones for a few times but I did not see any issues related to deburring.
But then again, I don't pursue the extreme level of sharpness that some of you guys chase though.

Thanks. I had a feeling it was that particular blade, not the steel in general.
