Looks nice Heath. Maybe it's picture distortion, but the edge looks like an arc. Does it have any flat area along the edge?

It is distortion from my phone camera. The curve on the edge starts about halfway to the point.

Great looking suji, Heath!
And nice catch, Lefty. You don't happen to have 270 suji to spare now that you got this? :)

Thanks. :) Heath's work really intrigues me. Sometimes I get a feeling about a guy's work. The last three were Rodrigue, Davis, and Nguyen. I'm not saying I discovered these guys, trust me! Anything but...however, I'm saying I don't get that vibe too often, but when I do, it seems to work out for me. :D

I should add Luke Snyder to that list. Oops.

I haven't received the knife yet (obviously), but I would like to mention how easy Heath has been to deal with. We discussed a couple little things and I got pictures, this morning with some minor tweaks to tailor it to my style, then sent pics to see what I thought, etc.

Thanks, Heath!

I just got the suji, and I must say...it has it's little flaws, as all knives do, but I love the feel of the handle, the handmade look and boy can it cut. A few tweaks and we'll have a fantastic knife! Nice work, and I can't wait to see you develop, Heath!
