    #16 made it west across the US, despite apparently being lost by the USPS for several days in the middle. I'm not allowed to use it until Christmas, but I'll try to get back to you.

    thanks!
    Noticed some issues with mine as well. Asymmetrical scales. An actual chip in the corner of the handle towards the choil. Some gaps and exposed epoxy. Vertical scratches in the wood and pins.

    Also not a fan of the printed logo.

    And I received a different number than the one I ordered.

    Lastly, the wood, at least mine, is very unimpressive....

    Blade finish seems decent. Grind and profile also seem functional.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Did you contact randy before posting this? Seems like you are in the vast minority.

    Well, six positive comments doesn't denote "vast".

    And, it's honest feedback. At $250 for a production knife, I don't see it as a "bargain". Rather I feel I paid a premium for a factory production knife with the stamp of a quality maker, thinking it ensured a quality standard.

    Having to break out files, CA glue and micromesh wasn't expected.

    Should I have sent this privately? Obviously, I feel no. Not trying to ruffle feathers, just being honest about a product that is currently offered for sale.

    I didn't like the printed logo either. And now that people have pointed it out, there are some scuff/grind marks on the tang and the pins but those don't really bother me. The only gyuto that I have to compare it to is a Tanaka Blue#2 and right now I think the Tanaka cuts better. I'm not sure if it's because of ootb edge or the grind. I also seem to prefer Tanaka's profile especially when slicing. I'm gonna give it some more time though to get used to it and see if my preferences changes or not.

    Fair enough, I guess what I meant to say is that you sound like an a@@

    Nice slinging mud, dude.

    If I bought something off Amazon, I would give an honest review for other potential buyers to read; positives and negatives. Why is not acceptable to post that I think my handle finish is a bit sub-par?
