My preface to this is that I love this knife as a cutter. I'll miss the way it feels and will probably buy another one day. But it is stressing me the **** out. I broke my left wrist last year and without a solid shinogi line I cannot hold the angle well enough to get a good straight finish on the left side. This was already stressing me out and then a coworker tipped it with a fish box. I pulled it out this morning to fix it and the ferrule was chipped. This string of bad luck combined with my busted hand, and not having the time to dedicate to sharpening this like it deserves makes it time to let go. This has not been a drawer queen, it has been used sixty hours a week in a busy restaurant. The handle has been scrubbed with steel wool. Fish scales are a *****. It is not at its peak sexiness. I'm looking for $325 or interesting trades. Photos to follow.
