wow, yeah, i would ask about an exchange. you could probably stop a .44 magnum with it, though, so maybe keep it around if you live in a high crime neighborhood.

If anyone decides to purchase one of these and is looking for a thinner one I would recommend getting specs with pics of the knife before hand if you are unable to see it in person. Asai is a great knife maker. Having said that his knives differ greatly. From what I saw they all have immaculate fit and finish, I am referring to the thickness more than anything. Some people like em fat ><
FWIW; Dan(owner of EE) said they all used to be thin like this one but the past ones happened to be thicker.
Bernal Cutlery also carries these. I just moved to San Francisco but haven't had a chance to look at them in person. Sooner or later I will be purchasing some knives from them.

Reason: Fudge brownies, ice cream, frozen yogurt, what more could you want?
