Looks like a winner, especially for us left handed folk.

Dam that is sweet. I can see a problem with keeping them stocked up.

Hey Jon, double bevel but still fairly asymmetric? Looks nice.

Cheers!

nope... as close to 50/50 as one can get by hand

so, it is more like Petty with Honesuki profile??.....like gyuto with Kiritsuke tip!?

Great looking knife!

I've spent the last couple of days (well, parts of them really) looking for double bevel honesukis, and it turns out there are not a whole lot of them, and definitely not with wa handles.

Any info on price for this beauty?

i think its going to be $205... based on demand so far, i'm not even sure if this first batch is going to make it to the website... i'm trying to get pics done this week though.

Just got one of these during my shop visit with Jon yesterday...excited to get home and put it to use! Handle is on the biggish side, felt great even with my relatively small hands. Bit of flex near the tip with the distal taper...need to get it in hand and turn big things into small things!

are you a lefty Zwiefel? I am, so I've considered picking up a Kochi Honesuki in the past. My only real apprehension is that that particular honesuki appears pretty large in photographs and I worry about how well it can get into tight spots for poultry work( im sure its fine though). Please tell us (or atleast me) how well it performs.

Yup, I'm right-brained! the other reason I was attracted to it is that it seems considerably more versatile than a standard 1-bev honesuki...and I don't do a lot of boning these days. I'll do some knife porn once I get it into action.
