    Thanks guys
    Kato told me that he will only make very very small amount of thise so i can not order them all the time and can only order 3 at the time, he normally dont make them. But thise come out with very good FF better then his other knives.
    Everything is rounded very nicely with nice polish, i can only imagen what pitta it is to polish and form such small blade without handle haha

    Yeah first time i try to add textur it is more for practical reasons, i think it adds bit more grab to this kind of knife
