    Magnus, But the real question here is, will your new takeda produce a close shave? I bet you've got some 4000 YO secret lotion selected? I'm only half kidding.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    I didn't know takeda did 1-off customs, how long was the wait time?
    Thanks Justin.

    Yeah i didnt know he did that,i just asked him and sent him the drawing and he was game. took 1,5 months lol not very long for a custom order.

    I decided to try have the tang in a angle, i think it will make the knife more agressive while cutting with the tipp (I Think ).

    ive talked to takeda about a custom recently. theyre definitely game for customizations, they were willing to make me one with a 4-5mm spine.

    If Magnus's knife performs the way I think it will perform, we should lobby Takeda to make this a permanent KFF fixture in his line.

    That profile (two flat sweet spots with a gentle belly) is exactly what is on my Shun Fuji 10 inch chef's. It's such a functional profile.
