    Tks for the pics.

    I am curious too. I tried with super glue... NOt gooey enough. It releases some fumes and left some white patches on the neck of knife. ..

    I suppose the super glue wld suffice in preventing water from seeping in... hopefully.

    Hey just an update, I sent the knife via USPS and they held onto it for awhile before returning it to me with no explanation. Address and everything was correct, maybe they just wanted to participate in the pass around. I've had weird problems with them before. I sent it via Fedex earlier this week and it should be at it's next stop by now.

    I will be shipping the knife once I receive the address. I will also come back and update my thoughts on the knife. I have a family member in the hospital and it has been limiting my time.

    Just used it for the first time today, I will be keeping it this entire week as I am on vacation and will be cooking daily. So far... I freaking love it!

    Alright, I boxed her up and even made her a new custom saya as the existing packaging wouldn't have made it through another shipment. I'll post more detailed thoughts later but suffice it to say, I am seriously considering purchasing a Takeda gyuto now.
