    Thanks for the birthday wishes--it was a couple of weeks ago and we had an ice storm and no power so it was put on hold, but the delay in celebrating turned out to be worth it since the knives just got to EE.

    The dragon's breath is still available, you guys. It's even more spectacular in person--the pictures do NOT do it justice--but of the 3 knives I saw, the ones that I LOVED were this one (fillet knife--with koa? EE didn't have all the details readily available--the knives weren't on display yet and they had to send someone to fetch them) and the Tamahagane, but the fillet knife I loved and actually needed. It was a really tough decision--that Tamahagane is an incredible knife and feels fantastic in your hand. But I've had a fillet knife on the wish list and I like a western handle, so that gave it the edge, so to speak.

    The picture's not great, but this gives you a little taste.

    This knife is a composite of five bars of twisted w's damascuss which are then welded together side by each and then forged into a blade.

    And really sharp, too. Was showing the hubby how it would flex for filleting--pressed the flat of it down to slide along a piece of printer paper on the dining room table. It proceeded to glide right thru the printer paper and tried to eat the table cloth, too.
