    Just got it f/ Mano in B/S/T about 1-2 weeks ago. Haven't used it. It's so beautiful I don't want to.

    Knife arrived this weekend while I was away and I picked it up at the post office before work today. Initial impressions are it's a lot longer feeling than 270 (I have a 265mm fowler and a 270mm mac pro for comparison). Fun knife to use so far, edge worked fine for the stuff I was doing. I'll write more as I get a chance to put it through the paces at work.

    Question: how do I deal with the reactivity/patina? I've seen some KS pics with some really nice patina on them but it's not for everyone. Is it something that I should polish off before sending it off to the next person? I sliced a few cooked steaks today with it and have a bunch of onions, lemons, and some proteins to do tomorrow, so it should be pretty patinaed by the time I'm done with it.

    Man, first time using white. I am in love. I now know why so many have them on the top of their list. It takes a edge and wants to hold on to it. Will do a thorough review after I send it off.

    Hmmmmm. Maybe he's drowning in his own knife cuts, a sea of mire poix...

    Sorry guys...very very behind in getting this out to the next guy. ChinaCats has decided to pass on it (he got to play with it a bit when I was in Charlotte anyway, we didn't realize he was next on the list), so I'll ship this off to DaveB today (if I can make it) or tomorrow.

    This made it in the post today. I'll be more diligent about getting passarounds out in a more timely fashion in the future.
