    Mr. Drinky likey very much. Great work Marko; and I can't wait to hear the feedback.

    Will the feedback go directly to you, or will there be a open thread?

    I am not completely unfamiliar with kitchen knives so the knives I make reflect my personal preferences which have been built on handling and analyzing knives from different makers over time. In other words, this is my interpretation of what makes a good kitchen knife for me. However, people's preferences are different, so I want a quick feedback on sharpening, edge retention, profile and geometry. I would like to limit sending the first couple of knives to one-two people to expedite things. After than, I will do a formal pass-around, and everybody is welcome to try it and post their impressions.

    I will have a sign-up sheet in a week or two.

    I normally don't get involved in pass-arounds, but this is way too interesting to pass on. I'll sign up when the sheet comes out. This knife just looks 'right'.

    I haven't determined the prices yet, but rest assure they will be competitively priced. Also, despite my relatively recent entry into knife making, expect top notch quality - no wabi-sabi here (in my book it's an excuse for a poor workmanship).

    The great thing about Marko's knives, you get this really cool looking handle that comes with it's own blade.

    Pretty good chance. I need about two weeks to get enough feedback to start working on knives for sale.
