    Well, I haven't taken pics, but I did use it for basically everything for a couple of weeks. I might put it to some better tests and take pics then. However, for the most part, I actually kinda liked it.
    Is it thin behind the edge? Meh. Not overly, but it only wedges on carrots and harder veggies that have a bit of height to them.
    It plowed through chicken carcasses like it was its job, only losing some sharpness. Say...15%. The funny thing is, even though it isn't the thinnest knife around, when dull it still cuts pretty well.
    I'll concentrate on it again in the next week and a bit and give a decent review in the review section.
    Trust me, there are major issues, when compared to our "big names", but it also has a few elements that the big name knives (big to us) might not have....
    How's that for a cliff hanger?

    This sums up my opinion of them pretty much to a tee. They cut so much better than all the other mass produced knives, but we all know better alternatives for the money.

    It's really just the steel I don't like. It feels like crap on the stones and is frustratingly difficult to put a screaming edge on. When you do finally get there it loses it very quickly. On the other hand though, it holds a passable edge for a really long time. With their price I think they would be great in VG10.

    Can't wait being a noob here I wouldn't mind what you are meaning on what they are missing. Btw nice cliffhanger, it just like a tv show take 3 mo. off and leave with another cliff hanger.
