    Forget my post please. Didn't look well, my fault.

    I don't think it is so much to ask for a video. The reviewer is thrilled with the food release of the knife, if that's the case I think others would enjoy seeing it in action. Really I think most people would appreciate esoteric knife makers to have some video demos. For review purposes a video would benefit the knife enthusiast community. Textual based reviews tell how the knife behaves, videos to some extent really show off how it behaves...

    So would be you be so kind as to demolish a few potatoes?

    Beautiful piece. Has the maker tried to made what Marko calls S-grind for food release. At least this seems from the choil shot?

    @Umberto
    Demolishing potatoes? I cut them. Perhaps you have a Kohetsu in mind:

    Nothing wrong with getting professional help.

    @Lizzardborn
    I found that grinding fascinating as well. Wonder about long term maintenance, though.

    Nice review. Thank you for sharing the comments. The thread got weird but it didn't diminish the quality of the review.

    Looks like a great knife lefty I like how it is left rustic but not in a black kuriochi way. Also how is the handle it looks significantly bigger than the rader is this better?

    Thanks for the detailed review, Lefty. As a senior member and respected vendor here, your opinions certainly carries a fair amount of weight with many of us. I'm going to look into these.

    I know it's extra work to make a video, but I'd love to see one, either by Lefty or anyone else who has one of these.
