    Beautiful blade there Son. I do agree that the handle is a bit busy, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Keep up the good work Cris.

    I know his girl will love the knife.

    It performs very well, there is very little belly but, because of the size of the knife and heel height it is really rather nimble. It did everything I asked of it within reason. I like this one alot.

    +1. I don't like the profile or the handle but if the geometry is good, and it doesn't cause pain to use it, that's really all that matters. When are we getting a passaround?

    Reminds me of some of fowlers blade shapes

    Overall, I think this knife's pretty cool. I can see it as more of an exercise in concepting than being a true workhorse. It's very sleek and a little superfluous in the handle, but for a cute inked girl...whateva

    It's shape is reminiscent of a spear head and I'd think it'd be dedicated for delicate work. Can it really be considered a gyuto?

    Anyway, cool stuff!

    I had the chance while in New York to handle this knife and have to say that the fit and finish for being from a relatively new maker was awesome. The profile is definitely not my cup of tea, but overall the knife was extremely sharp and well built.

    Handle broke when Cris was trying to get it off to adjust the handle. He had to make a new one.

    Great review -- like the second handle much better
