    I got this shipped from Hong Kong, is the only reason I thought this. I had never heard about them at the time. I was really surprised about the fit and finish. For the price, the f/f is better than some other knives I have bought for the same price, and more. Ootb blade was very sharp. It held a edge for a good time. I don't use it very often any more, but still am happy when I pick it up.

    I missed this the first time around, thanks for digging it up again.

    So after the pre-cut potato vendor said "gimme all your money" and after you said "now THAT's a knife" and destroyed all the spuds, did the kitchen manager swoon and say "I'm always alright when I'm with you, Crothcipt" ?

    Heh. I just got a couple of those fruit knives in the mail today. Love the geometry, just what I'm looking for a in a parer. Cleaned a few celeriac; none of the lateral wedging I get from most parers when I try to turn a cut. These should be fantastic for coring apples and the like.

    Acceptably sharp OOTB -- good to hear that edge retention is decent.
