Well used and well loved. This knife was purchased about five months ago and has seen, as my primary sidearm, almost daily use in a pro kitchen. As such, it's condition is definitely "used," though there aren't any real problems or giant scratches.

It's been sharpened about a dozen times, and I've changed the edge angles and asymmetry a few times to get it where I like it. Additionally, the current edge was in the process of being "stress tested," which means you'll definitely want to put it to your stones before your cutting board.

The knife is a fantastic workhorse, has gotten a lot of good mojo, and were it not for my financial crisis I'd never dream of selling it.

That's a hell of a deal. I'm sorry you have to sell it and I wish you luck with your finances. Someone should grab this while it's available.

Since the price increase, this knife is $245, new. If I didn't already have one, it's be gone.

I sold it off-forum and dragged ass updating the thread. It's now in the hands of a co-worker who lives a few houses down from me (a newly converted knut).

I'm sure I'll still get bittersweet visitation rights when it needs sharpened, lol.

I am getting too old. My trigger finger is a bit slower than it used to be. Lol. Hope the new owner enjoys it.
