Wow, blue #1 honyaki that's rare items!! Will there be a killer hamon on these blades? Can't wait for more info on these...

Notice the white stripe reflection on the blades. (Clue to the grind) These look to be bad a$$ indeed.

Yup, they got some of that convexity you like, Salty! Interested to see what price point this fall at. Looks like a good knife. BTW, I'm really beginning to agree with you, a good convex grind, while "thicker" than a flat grind, performs much thinner than it actually is and better IMO than the flat ground knives.

Now I know why they keep saying live for the moment... the way the vendors make me want to spend money I can't afford to live in the future.

I see only 2 big uns and 2 lil uns. Salty will speak for one big un, 2 will go to mysterious strangers, leaving just one for us all to drool over.

Let me see if I can stretch my mortgage beyond 35 years...

I think Salty is more of a 240 guy.
