    NKD Harner parer

    Just picked up this parer from another forum member. Cleaned up the handle and put a fresh edge on it and I'm really impressed. Arrived with a few small chips in the edge and felt quite slick on the stones making me think the steel is quite hard, unsure of what the steel is though (guess was S30v?). It's waifishly thin, and has taken a scary edge (5k SS then strop), going to stay with the sister this weekend and she likes to use a parer for everything so will take it along to get her expert opinion. Only worry is if she likes it I might end up losing it

    Will give an update when I've had a chance to use it for a while, but first impressions are great, nice weight in the hand, comfortable blade shape and nice length.

    Beautiful. I've had the pleasure metting Butch, he lives about 10 mins from me, and came into my Bistro to eat and chat. He let me handle a few of the knives he had in the truck, and I fell in love. I'm just to poor, lol. I'm sure you'll be happy with that one. I'm on the prowl for one of his parings, as that all I'll be able to afford for some time, but damn, his f&f is simply amazing.

    You are going to lose it. No doubt about it.
    I absolutely love my Nakiri from Butch.
    I hear similar comments from people who own his knives and straight razors.

    Nice score, looks like a good one. I love Butch's work. I had the pleasure of using one of his knives in a passaround.

    It's my first Butch, and if shipping and customs to the UK wasn't so expensive I'd be having a harder time convincing myself I don't need another. It's also not a knife to use to cut against your thumb over the pan, so I might be able to keep it.....

    Looks lovely. First uk Harner?! I'm soo tempted for Leftys Harner nakiri for my new set up. Mind you the only other gap in my new setup is a parer so if you suddenly don't like it......

    I'd need a pretty thick callous as its treetopping sharp, I have visions of someone using it like they would a typical non-Knut parer and taking the top off their thumb. I was surprised at how quickly it took a good edge. It formed a burr that was barely noticeable so I probably spent a bit longer than I could have making sure i was at the edge all along, and it still took less than 10 minutes for the full progression including lapping the stones and setting new bevels after taking out the chips at the belt grinder.

    Ahh...so it's so sharp to have to be too careful. ;-)
