    First day of use. Comparing it to my Konosuke HD 'go to' home knife.

    I did some quick measurements.
    The HHH comes in at 202mm; 1mm longer on edge than the HD. Pretty much a dead heat
    Height at heel; 43mm for the HHH, 40 for the HD. Even with the HHH more substantial handle, there was no board clearance issues whatsoever.
    Spine thickness is virtually identical, with the HHH distal taper starting a little earlier.
    Using my rudimentary method of measuring tip to board height, the HHH comes in at 11mm, 3mm lower than the HD. This, along with Randy's more triangular profile made a big difference in usability. It felt much more fluid than the HD in tip work.
    Weight difference was pretty substantial; 169g for the HHH, 98g for the HD. Mostly handle heavy, throwing the balance point back a bit more than I prefer. I think that if the handle was sculpted a little more, it would bring down the weight, move the balance forward, and provide a little more purchase for the pinky finger. That being said, I always felt that the HD didn't carry enough weight.

    Gonna do some dinner prep involving leeks, tomatoes, eggplant, onion, garlic, chard, cooked sausage, some fresh herbs, etc.
    I'm not going to strop or sharpen...it'll have the edge that all the other testers used before me.

    Time to order your Midway Line Knife!

    Based off the reviews and info from the testers. I will make a few small tweaks to the profile and handle.. Most of the changes are geared to the front of the handle itself and the area directly in front of the handle. As well as a slight tip adjustment which will make it a better slicer for draw cuts and a little more pointy for lack of a better term. The resulting changes will also make sharpening more comfortable, allowing a more natural feel on the stones when sharpening near the heel.

    I am ready to move forward with a short run of Midway line knives. I want to thank everyone for their help in the pass around as well as for your interest in these knives. Due to the nature of this small batch the price point is a bit higher then I was planning for the production version of this design. I also want you all to know. These will not be production knives. Rather they will be done in house here at HHH Knives.

    In total I will do up to 15 Midway line knives.

    Ill keep the order list open for a couple weeks or or until its full. whichever happens first.

    The estimated turn around time on these will be Jan 2015.

    To keep the price down down. There wont be options for handle material. They will all have. Canvas micarta. Similar to original handle on the pass around with a black liner and stainless pins. single mosaic pin.

    Price point of the fist batch will be 295.00 + shipping Payment options will be. 50% to place the order. With the balance and shipping due at time of completion.

    To order, Please shoot me a Private Message here on the forum. Include you real name. and email address. as well as the country where you live. This will allow me to send a invoice through PayPal for the deposits and to be able to know how much to charge for shipping when the knives are done and ready to ship.



    Because I cant make changes or edit this post here on KKF. I reserve the right to modify or change the info above. As needed. Yet will communicate both here and in email of any changes if necessary.
