    I've been wondering if my standard of "fatty" is different than that of others. I've "realized" that it's not how thin a knife looks, but rather how thin it cuts. A perfect example of this is Itinomonn, which when the choil is held up to a thinned knife, might look a bit hefty. However, the thing cuts like a dream. The way a knife glides in a cut is what is key. If Tk thinned this thing, I bet it's a glider.

    I find that feel is a much better indicator of thinness than looking at the choil or tip (though looking there can give a good indication, one has to be cognizant of tricks that can be done to make the knife seem thinner than it is, visually). Pinch the edge between your thumb and forefinger at several places on the blade (without cutting yourself), and a knife that is thin behind the edge will be obvious.

    Knife arrived a few minutes ago. everything appears to be in good shape...a few minor scratches in the cladding from sharpening, I'd guess. Will put it to work and report back in a week-ish. Might use it to teach my knife skills class on Monday

    I'm ready to get this in the post to the next person in line. As best I can tell, Dardeau is next in line? If that's right, I can get it in the post fri/sat.

    I think this is the list after me:

    Mkmk - Illinois
    Edipisreks - Ohio
    Lefty - Canada
    ShaneG - New Zealand
    Dusty - Australia

    I'll get an address from Mkmk and get it in the post shortly.

    Yeah, I just don't have time to really give a knife a workout, these days.
