    ahh, yes the famous model 102. one of my favorites, to bad that one is 3 inch to short and that wicked recurve sure makes it fun to use. Oh yea and the $280 mark up. I saw this and the funny thing is there are about 8 other ones that are in damn fine condition for about $50. on there right now. If you ever truly want a Henckels from when they were at the top of their game the model 102 was it.

    What is the benefit from that "wicked recurve", other than simple production?? It's still in use in some series. It makes the tip useless IMHO.

    Could you imagine trying to rock chop with that thing. It would start at a 90 degree angle...

    that knife didn't come that way, that's bad steeling and sharpening. that blade was originally 12 in or so and is now 9.5in.
