I brought my Kramer to work today. I don't give it a ton of use at work. Honestly just would never leave it here. Putting the whole visual aspect of the damascus aside it is the best performing knife I have ever used. Looking at all aspects of performance, f/f, blah blah blah it is the best overall knife I have ever used or handled. Some knives have better steel, some have equal grinds, yada yada... but as a complete knife the Kramer wins, and that is before I factor in the visual aspect of the knife. And I have used one or two knives in my time. Not bragging, just wanted to throw it out there, especially for all those Kramer haters.
