    The vendor mentioned is Knifewear.
    And i clean my knives with BKF all the time.
    Kevin from knifewear is a great guy to deal with. Knows his stuff.

    That's what I was thinking. Nice to hear

    YEA! I love Knifeware, have several knives from them YEA! I love BKF, but I'm betting that with regular use it would thin out any KU finish out there

    Never dealt with Kevin, but I've used a few knives that came from him. His products are great, and he seems to have a very good following. I think I'd like the guy.

    As for Takedas, I've now had many in my hands, and once you get past the goopy epoxy, they're pretty special knives. Definitely not for everyone, but still very very nice. I think a stainless clad option might fill the hole that will be left by Hiromoto in the future.

    I've owned one. There were several things I liked and disliked. The kicker was when I was testing the blade for flexibility it stayed flexed. I mean the three inches or so between my thumb and index finger near the tip stayed at a 20 degree angle.

    I promptly sold it. That was probably 4 years ago. Don't really know if it was a lemon but I've been biting my lip ever since.

    I've noticed that easy to bend and stay bent thing on thin Takedas knives too. I've straightened mine out several times. Same for some of the Carters I own. Seems to just be something you can expect from certain clad steel blades.
