    TK, if the list is still open, I'd really love to check it out and see what you've done with it. I'd especially like to be able to compare it side by side with one belonging to a chef buddy. His is axe-like.

    This knife will be going out by early next week. I just have a few more tasks I want to try with it.

    Sure thing. I guess you'll be after brainsausage. Geographically, it might work a little quicker to go to Michigan, Maine, Long Island then Texas... Mike, if you haven't already shipped, maybe we can switch this around some? Otherwise, no biggie.

    I bought some stuff to cut today so it'll go out on Monday. Just tell me where you want it to go and I'll send it there.

    Tinh, did you do all the work by hand/stone or have you gone down the grinder hole?

    I've had one of those little cheapie grinders for a couple of years now and ground six knives from blanks on it, in total. After grinding a 330 mm suji on it, I've decided I'm either retiring from doing major grinding jobs or getting a bigger grinder. At this point, retiring is winning, lol. That's a lot of work, not to mentions it's dirty, uncomfortable, too... That said, I'll probably still get a bigger grinder once the kids figure out I'm not the coolest person on the planet.

    @Miles: You're welcome.

    I can only imagine, yeah you'll have to go one way or the other, LOL.

    I've sharpened and thinned this model knife before. They were nothing like this. The improvement is huge. It is nothing like stock and a great improvement. I used it on a large variety of fruits, veggies and protein, comparing against some pretty nice knives, it held it's own for sure. Super hard steel and this was extremely well refined by Mr Tk59. I will use what he as a reference for future challenges.
