    Cool vid.

    I think there are more than 4 or 5 guys hand making kitchen knives in the US nowadays though!

    Wish we could get a passaround going on one of these. The profiles are interesting enough I'd want to try one and it's American made, but the price is a bit prohibitive without a lot of trusted feedback.

    Yup, +1 to all of that.

    +2. Although, I have to say, the design looks promising. I'd bet (less than $500) that they are fine knives.

    Why doesn't somebody contact Joel and arrange a pass-around of one of his knives and have folks review it? This would help establish the knife (and maker's) merits and end speculations. 15000hours is a lot of time to put into a craft and should speak for themselves.

    Or perhaps an owner would pass-around one of CB knives. The sooner we get to the bottom of this, the better for reputation of the brand.

    I've handled his Prospect line of chef's knives quite a bit. I think that most people would find them thin enough with great fit 'n finish. What people here might not like so much is the belly profile and handle shape as they're both sort of outside of the norm for this group.

    Good idea.

    @Dave: I didn't see any "pregnant-looking" knives on his webpage. If anything, I thought the 2/3 of the knife toward the heel was too flat. They look dead flat to my eye.
