    Got the new Kramer Zwilling knife today. Some of the pics show it with the real Kramer 9" Chef's knife for comparison. I was very pleasantly surprised with the knife. I was prepared to be a little disappointed but not so. The F&F is excellent. The distal taper is comparable to the real Kramer and the choil and spine are nicely rounded. The OOTB edge is pretty good. Haven't had a chance to sharpen it yet. It's perfectly balanced at the bottom of the bolster and feels very much like the real deal in my hand.

    I tried to get some shots of the choil and spine but the came out like cr@p.

    Is the geometry the same?

    Here's another attempt to get the choil shot. The geometries are very similar.

    I think Zwilling has a winner on its hands. Since its carbon, you can thin the crap out of it without worrying about the pattern.

    That's pretty damn close. How big is the gap between the ferrule and the blade?

    I can't see a gap, if I understand you right.

    I think it's cool that you've got the real deal and one of its clones.

    on one hand, the real Kramer appears a little thinner ... on the other - the new one is longer ... looks pretty good, though! i'm impressed!
