Received mine yesterday, sweet little spinner of a knife. Thanks again to both Butch and Tom.
There is only one God, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not Today...'
Tom, Use away, I need love. Did I mention I like the knife?
Older and wider.
Nah, you didn't mention it.... Actually, I'd love some real reviews/feedback on these, guys. I expect these to be regular items (whenever I can get Butch to make them ), so letting guys know what they should expect would be great!
Here's my curly koa with Brazilian cherry saya...
My initial impression is this thing is beastly sharp ootb. Sharpest stainless knife I've ever received. The handle is done well, and the bump out at the end really helps to wield the smaller knife. I was a bit oft put by the up-sweep of the blade at first, but I rather like it now. It's much more subtle in person, and really helps with knuckle clearance if using on a board. Also, it doesn't hinder in-hand work much, if not at all. The pointiness is probably my favorite thing. It works well with the length of the blade, making it much more versatile than just an in-hand parer. I'm usually not a proponent of using pettys as parers and vis versa, but this really does work well for both, albeit a smallish petty.
I've tried a fair deal of parers in my time, and haven't been in love with too many. The Mac, Kramer and the Hattori forum are about the best I've tried. I'm hoping my new profile Del will be up there, as the shape of the original profile keeps it from being an all-arounder (ever try to supreme a grapefruit with one?). Also, I really need to get my hands on one of those funky HHH's...
This is probably one of the best...
