    7-10 days is fairly normal. although the only pass around ive used is the Dalman one.

The Kasumi looks cool and seems to hold up well to scratches. The knife get silly, silly sharp. I'm hoping Jon will release more knives from the Gengetsu line.
    I have this knife, (White #2) in the 210 version and love it so much I'm thinking about going up to a 240. Figure this is the perfect chance to see if a 240 is for me before pulling the trigger.

    I love a nice pair too. Problem is that once you get good with a gyuto it's hard to go back to other profiles and your now beloved nakiris will grow old and dusty.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
