    I've been clicking links and following this knife through various video and photo galleries, and while it looks great, I haven't seen much in the way of specs or description.

    Do you know what the cladding is? Is it a nickel /carbon blend or is it the more reactive iron stuff like Shigefusa uses?

    Approximate spine thickness @ heel, mid, tip?
    Balance point?

    The design seems to lean more towards the "general use"/gyuto end of the mix than the yanagi/suji slicer end. Is this correct?
    If you where to keep it, what would you see using it for the most?

    Any idea of shipping cost to the USA?

    I never really understood what you ment by "to blingy". It has a beautiful shine on it which will go away when you start using it. Or the beautiful damascus which you will not harm at all. Just being curious.

    I just prefer knifes that are not damascus, to shiny/flashy - ones you have to take really good care of to maintain the good looks.

    The knife is a piece of art but to "blingy" to use in a pro-kitchen, that would be a shame, well that's what I think anyways.
