    I was only kidding about the profile, Dave.

    I'll let you know how it holds up, but I think it'll do fine.

    And added some trace elements that transformed the 154CM into CPM154 at the same time. Hey, the tang still looks too thin for it to be a beautiful knife, but the profile really isn't that bad. It's pure Watanabe, and he has a following.

    All kidding aside, I have to say that the work that Dave did transformed the knife totally. Before Dave worked his magic on it, I was trying to decide how much I was willing to lose reselling it. Now, it's a keeper.

    Thanks, again, Dave!

    Bottom line is that if you buy a Richmond Addict, send it to Dave if you want it to perform.

    Weight: 188g (6g less)
    Length of edge: 239.5mm (no change)
    Height of blade at heel: 55.2mm (no change)

    Blade thickness:
    Spine at heel: 2.65mm (0.10 less)
    Midpoint at heel: 1.60mm (0.05 less)
    Edge at heel (right above bevel): 0.40mm (0.40 less)

    Spine at midblade: 2.50mm (0.05 less)
    Midpoint at midblade: 1.50mm (0.05 less)
    Edge at midblade (right above bevel): 0.35 (0.30 less)

    Spine at 1cm from tip: 0.80mm (0.25 less)
    Edge at 1cm from tip (right above bevel): 0.35 (0.25 less)
    Does anyone know how these measurements compare to the Carbonext 240 gyuto? I own one but don't have the measuring tools.

    I think if I were looking for stainless at this price range, I would get the one from JCK in vg-10.

    Wow, the before and afters really do highlight howthickbehind the edge they are..... Also 6g less after addding weight by oiling the handle

    Strange that it was gumming up the belts, does this indicate it may be more likely to clog stones? Not sure what characteristics cause this so may not be related, would be interesting to hear peoples thoughts
