    I know the FF on the MAC Superior is far ahead of the ITK

    But is it worth the extra 20 $$$ are they the same performance wise?

    Depends on the F&F flaw, mine shipped with a significant burr on the right side of the knife, so much so that when holding the knife edge up with my left hand, I could pick the blade up with my right thumbnail (by the burr)...I found it easy enough to fix by dragging across the edge of a stone, but as shipped performance was off for sure.

    I did however start a thread about it at the time, and nobody else seemed be having the same issue so might not be a typical problem.

    If it were me, I'd shell out the 20 bucks extra for the Mac.

    Custom handled ITK Tojiro.
    I was going to have a handle put on either so I saved the extra $ for the Mac and used it for the handle for the ITK.

    I've had both. No f&f issue on my itk, so I'd choose it again.

    Mine came with a wire edge; folded over after the first use on baguettes. Need to knock it off sometime this week.
