Well, my knife arrived today and it is beautiful. I haven't sharpened it, but here are some initial thoughts. The profile, length, and knuckle clearance are exactly what I wanted. I wanted a slightly shorter suji with a bit higher heel so that I could use it as an all-arounder. I haven't cut much, just a few cucumbers, but my initial reaction is very positive. Also, the new grind, seems to be very good at food release. I just did a short comparison with my Martell (I don't have another suji to compare it to) and it did release food better than that blade.
Anyhow, more impressions to come at a later date. Thanks Marko.
