    Seems like I should avoid them. Guess that's what I'll do

    Not really man, Depends on the application and expectation. For my Nakiri and Petty it does a perfectly fine job. How do you expect good HT, F&F, Grind and Profile for under $100.. . They get the job done and don't cost very much. Beating the crap out of them and sticky fingers are irrelevant at the price point. But I'm also glad I spent more money on my gyuto's. They get put through the grinder and need to be able to hold up.

    W2 and White #2 are one in the same correct?


    And Wait on USPS to get my burl here Johnny . Many Thanks again to our friend from Burl Source. Engineering said I would be able to use their drill press to set a whole for my tang.

    Are you able to epoxy furrel material to the Burl and basically use it as one piece? I see many knives where the handle wood follows all the way through the furrel. I plan to sink a rough whole for my tang and fit it to shape with needle rasps to fit it as tight as possible. Any reason why this may not work?

    Slight over grind, Couple Hammer marks, Crappy handle..

    Also it's White #2 for $30, I figure I'll experiment.

    ** Most people at work assume it's worth 3x as much.. I'm considering doing 2 or 3 for friends if it turns out passable..

    I think my next knife needs to be a gyuto so maybe I'll spend a little more. The Tojiro bread knife looks good enough for me though

    The ITK bread knife is pretty sweet.

    I personally am willing to spend more on the blade that sits in my hand 75% of the time.

    Love my Yoshihiro, and am starting to understand how my Fowler wants to be used better.

    Also My Father is going to give me his old Sab. Someone ****ed up the grind really bad on him.

    Once I recieve it I'll post a few pics so see what exactly needs to happen with it.

    Ha ha, just waiting for a good day to stop by engineering. Said I could use their drill press/band saw/clamps and the like for a little while.
