It's idle at the moment while I'm in the honeymoon phase with my Fowler. Usual rules apply - use it for a week, sharpen only if you know how and insure it for $200. It's not the precious gem some are that are going around, but it's a solid work knife for good price point.

I owned one of these, and recently sharpened another for a friend. They are nice knives, people should enjoy this one.

I'd be up for it, I actually contemplated getting one, or Sugimoto cm series.

I'm down.
Send it to me before Panda so I can just hand it off to him, then make him pay for the shipping!:wink::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::jumping 2::jumping2::jumping2::evilgrin::evilgrin::evilgri n::evilgrin::evilgrin:

Please do post some reviews, the knife is at an interesting price point. 270mm is too long for me, otherwise I'd like to check out the knife.

I just got added on to Panda's passer, otherwise I'd be all about this. I've been eyeing their goods on eBay since I got into jknives. Very interested to see how they perform.

I have been wondering how the steel compares with globals. Would like to try this out, have been eyeing for awhile.

Molybdenum is in the line of what Global uses. Why wouldn't I want to see if someone got a better knife out of it.

I would like a shot at it. Could be a good recommendation for the cooks I have that are rockin German santokus.

I would be interested in trying this out for much the same reasons as "Chuckles".

OK - I've never done a passaround so shoot me your addresses and I'll put a loop list together. If you are handing it off to someone that's cool. I'll put a printed copy in the box so you will have the next address to mail to just cross your name off when you mail it. Here is a link to the review I did a while back.

I'll get this out tomorrow or wednesday and PM the 1st recipient. Was someone going to hand this off to another member? NC rings a bell.

I'm not sure what happened to Mike. I don't think he's on the forum anymore.
