I bought this 8 incher back in the late 90s, and it was my first real chef's knife. It was pretty beat up, bent tip, knicked edge. But I straightened it out and sharpened it and used it for ten years til I finally picked up a Shun 8" chef's knife at a gun show couple of years ago for $70.
I picked up the scimitar recently, haven't had a chance to fix it up yet.
Anywho, does anybody know this brand? You can imagine what kind of results you get when you punch "Gay Blade" into google.
