    Jon, the Sabaki Bocho looks similar to a Carter funy. Would you say that they're similar knives or am I way off?

    The utility knife looks really cool, I'm interested in seeing if you'll be open to carrying more of this kind of thing in the future.

    Picked up the tosagata bocho a couple days ago. Today I successfully removed a large portion of my first finger on my left hand between the knuckles while slicing onions like an idiot. Sharp knife. Thin knife.

    It is wicked and feels great in the hand. I know that Jon said it could be used for opening boxes, but I have so much hard-to-remove gunky glue on it now that I think I am going to have to take some acetone to it. It looks great so I will forgive the bolster that will hinder sharpening. I am sure Jon has some super clever way to deal with sharpening it though.
