    Wait until you see some of the blocks I have… with the heartwood/sapwood ends similar to the ironwood one Cris did last year (I think for Marc?). I think that will be a good fit for the hamon.

    I love Cris's work and have my name on his list but had a couple of other customs come up which zapped my funds so I am still waiting to get one of his.

    Hi XooMG - Just scratching the surface with this knife as I was on travel when I received it! My comments are primarily around the customer service side and that for generic veg the blade was very adept and felt well in the hand. Will have a lot more to play with now so will take my time to get to know it.

    Just curious what specific items you mean when referring to "harder things I cut"?

    My $0.02 is that everyone has an opinion and as long as the criticism is constructive seems pretty silly to having to worry about being censured or having akward interactions with makers. Seems some healthy commentary goes along way but that never seems to be the case ... just look where I live to see that silliness abounds ... land of flakes and butterflies after all ... LOL

    TJ - Chris did show me a couple of his hamon babies ... very, very pretty and I think that those woods would be very pretty in deed!

    Agree 100%.

    Count me in the group that thinks we need to be a bit more open and willing to also discuss - in a fair and subjective way - experiences that don't fall in the "I LOVE THIS KNIFE" category. You almost never hear any kind of negative/constructive feedback. I know there are tons of reasons for that, and I'm guilty of it as well. I admit that!

    If a knife is wedging in food it shouldn't be wedging in... we should say that. If F&F is not what can be expected from a knife costing $XXX, we should state.

    Just my opinion.

    Full disclosure: this is a general statement and does NOT refer to Cris Anderson knives. I don't own one, have never tried one and will most likely never buy one because the handle style doesn't appeal to me. But again: that's a personal taste!

    That's disturbing, Marc!

    I always ...

    I'm kinda surprised to hear that knife is great for push cutting. Usually flatter profiled knives w really pointy tips feel better suited for pull cuts in my experience. Thanks for the review.
