Hows the sharpness? I think the edge retention will be insane, but will that effect the sharpness?

Devin sharpened it before sending it out. It might hit the stones later this week.

I thought that AEB-L was the ultimate kitchen knife steel. Now I need to know what the mystery steel is.

All Devin would tell me is that it should hold an edge better than 52100. It is a carbon steel.

That handle looks like brushed wenge. Is it?

Yup! It feels great. Seriously, Devin won't tell me what it is. I trust Devin implicitly. He has been working on the heat treat for this steel for a while. He said the real magic is in his heat treat.
