    Labor, have you used a takeda gyuto? How does the height compare to one? And the performance

    I just got very busy, I think I'm going to bow out on this one. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I thinned out my Fujiwara Teruyasu Nashijii until it barely resembles the knife it once was. It started as a fat knife. Now I have most of the spine less than 2mm thick and thinned the bevel. It still feels hefty and balanced. It cuts much much much better now. I don't think this knife ever went through the hammering of cold-forging.

    Is there a reason why this went from San Diego half way across the US to Louisiana, only to now go back to the western US?

    Not sure about that Mike.

    I did some runs with this knife. I'll post my thoughts and some pictures soon and send it on its way.

    I would be happy to be moved down the list to keep it in a saner rotation. Shipping the thing across the country makes no sense.

    My Bad, my knowledge of US geography is fairly non existent. If someone wants to put together a more cohesive order that would be great

    No problem, Don and Huw. I am in no rush to receive it. I just thought it was a little odd.

    I'm flexible -- whatever works best is fine for me. I'm near Chicago, btw.
