    Knife arrived today.
    First impressions:
    This is one tight knife. F & F is spot on. Geometry is nice and comfortable. It is a realtively tall knife. Patina is forming nicely and the edge it arrived with, I guessing Rick T put on it, is 3 finger testy. The right scale does have a crack in it but does not appear to be bad enough to warrant a re-handel. I'll give it a little run tomorrow on some stuff for home made sushi.
    The saya that Eamon made for it fits perfectly and the Ivory pin is really cool. Really nice to see and feel this level of quality all the way around.

    More to follow.

    I've watched this one from the sidelines, and may just have to ask about jumping in, at the end. Everyone's awesome reviews have me wanting to beat on this knife! Honestly, every single Harner I've handled has made me shake my head in amazement. His work is incredible, looks and cuts like nothing else. Really, what more could we ask for?

    Got a nexus 7 tablet woohoo! Gonna try to type up a bit of a review here.

    A lot has been said about this knife already so I won't spend much time repeating everything. I'll just post my own basic thoughts. This knife is just a prep beast! It's large size makes it a great chopper but it's surprisingly light, nimble and extremely well balanced. You just don't get fatigued easily while wielding this monster. The steel is just great. Sharpens up quick, even and easily. Maintains its edge quite well and responds to stropping nicely. Has a great patina on it so it doesn't react to onions or anything I threw at it.

    Overall it's a great example of Butch's work. It's a little different and everyone who saw it said it looked odd. Once you use it though it just makes sense.

    Thanks for letting me beat stuff up with this beast, I gave it a good run and now I know why everyone loves Butch's work!
