I was wondering when that thuya burl was going to surface.

Very nice, Mario!

Love the handle, not too flashy but majestic at the same time.

Like my petty review, plain and simple. It is smooth. I have two issues to figure out though. One is that I need a bigger cutting board. This knife gets too crowded too quickly by the ones I own. Two, I need to find a solution to display it when not in use. I have not come across a block that deserves to hold this knife in it yet. I do not have the wall space to use a magnetic bar.

Beautiful knife, Mario. Just stunning, but where's your logo? Not that it 'needs' it!

Very cool! Lots of Masamoto in that profile. Doesn't get much better than that

It is a pre-makers mark blade.The grind is a little different.My personal taste in a blade is my pre-makers mark grind.....but I need to "sell" them so I changed the grind a bit.

Can you explain what effect the newer grind has versus your earlier/pre-makers mark grind?

It is all-around a thinner knife,the first third of the blade is much thinner.The "effect" would be a personal opinion. I do like my knives more Marilyn Monroe then Kate Moss.

I also prefer a little sturdier feeling but I would not mind living with either of them. :biggrin:

In fact, today I received my second qyuto of yours that I purchased last week.
This has a little thinner than my first and I feel that it cuts better though.

I am going to see if I can bring the chubby lady to perform as good as the skinnier one over the weekend.

My pre makers mark Mario is my favorite blade. And my dream car is a Range Rover if that makes sense.
