    Got the glestain back today. Thanks guys for taking good care of her. I stropped on a very hard unidentified j-nat and 3 micron diamond paste on leather and she's back to shaving sharp. Nice sharpening job too btw. Very nice clean bevels.

    Just curious. How much did you change it from the original profile. The steel was easy to work.

    The profile of the knife is the same as it was new pretty much. Just a little shorter. And I've tried to maintain as much of the original geometry as possible over time.

    How much extra was the left version? I miss using it. Wasn't to down with the aesthetics though. It's like the knife version of a "but her face"

    Knife definitely deserves more respect regardless of the steel.

    Agreed. It was the first knife that I got that I don't think I would ever sell.
    @ Lol - I don't remember what I paid for it. I got it through Korin almost four years ago. It is more than the righty version and I do believe that they have gone up in price a bit since I bought mine.

    The 210 was one of my first real Japanese knife purchases (Lefty!) It still sits in my kitchen every day at home. Don't think I could ever sell it. Although I don't love the steel on it, I love the knife and don't think I could ever get rid of it.
