    I'm going to ship the knife to cheflarge tomorrow. I would have liked to get it to Jon, but don't think it will arrive in time.

    Oh wait, you mean we can customize our signatures?

    No worries. Again - my most humble thanks to labor of love and daveb for giving us this amazing opportunity.

    Ok I have a thing for white #2. I swear I'm starting to recognize it out of the box.

    Now - the two knives are supposed to be 240mm. Umm no at least in how I measure.


    White #2 159g 240mm. This is the knife for me. Nice and polished. Felt good in my hands. I was very comfortable with veggies and proteins with this blade.

    Stainless 196g weight 249mm length. Yes I weighed and measured. It felt more like my TF 240 and kato workhorse in that it was a much more substantial knife. I had to fight to keep control of this blade. Reminder - I'm a chick but even my 6"4' hubby was kinda going ...ummm hand me the smaller knife on this one.

    Now if you're looking for a beast workhorse I'd ask Jon to find you one of his longer 240's. But for me I'll stay with the W#2.

    We did onions, peppers, melons, protein, and carrots with these. I'm looking forward to more feedback.

    Both were nice, but like I said, I like w#2.

    For what it's worth, a lot of the semi stainless ones are much more similar to your white number two experience nowadays

    The eagle has landed!!! I will put them through the paces this week.
    Good food is essential, where knives are an integral part of the process.

    Just a reminder to everyone, the semi stainless is the one in the wood saya!

    Semi also has Kanji on the left side of blade. Carbon on right side. (Jon needed a way to tell them apart - ha!)

    Newer ones are different... kanji on same side, and steel type on back
