    Yes, Pesky does like to talk.

    = days in the month

    One other thing- the grind on this knife is better than either of my DTITKs. The knife is thinner behind the edge and at the tip. Whats impressive is both of those knives had some the best grinds I have seen on a custom knife up to that point. If you have a DTITK and like its performance, a custom Devin Thomas will impress you.

    I was just making lunch an comparing your DarkSide vs your 52100 DTITK and I was going to make that very statement. Let's just say, I didn't do too much cutting with the DTITK. There was no comparison. The DTITK was not in the same league. Not a bad knife but the mystery steel knife was just that much better.

    This year has been so far the best one for knife makers and people that can actually afford the cool toys. Bastids.

    Ok. I finally got my DTITK after a 5 month wait. So I'll bite.

    - How much did your Mystery Metal Monster cost?
    - What exactly is the Mystery Metal?
    - Justify the difference between "better than either of my DTITKs" because I'm not a chef-for-a-living. But I'd love to get my hands on a custom DT, and I'm surprised that this isn't a Damascus Gyuto.

    Appreciate the info you could provide, but my GF will hate you for it... haha.
