    Round 2:
    Played with it a little more. I can see how this knife would be great in a production setting. Did everthing I asked of it with ease. My wife loved it also.....kinda scary. If I had to go into battle in the kitchen this would be a great weapon to have. It totally killed the Sushi project.

    THANKS AGAIN,

    PZ

    It's back home, with a bunch more patina than it had when it left. I hope everyone who had a chance to use it enjoyed the experience.

    Thanks to everyone who shared their opinions.

    The thanks goes to you, sir. I would have never tried such a thing without you making this available, and letting my fondness for Kitchen knives grow just a little more.

    I just wanted to give you guys an update on the knife. As you know, the scales had a hairline crack in one of them, and Butch generously offered to replace the scales after the passaround.



    So, off to the "spa" it went. Since replacing the scales involves getting the tang squeaky clean so the epoxy will adhere correctly, I opted to have Butch remove the patina that you guys had lovingly produced during the passaround.

    Here are some WIP pics. The scales are stabilized redwood from Burl Source.







    More to come ...

    Butch had it with him the other day before fixing it and brought it by the bistro for me to gander at. Only held it for a few seconds, but fell in love instantly. He does amazing work.

    That is such an awesome knife! Participating in this passaround made me a true believer of Mr. Harner's work. I now luckily own that Butch Nakiri in CPM-154. Hey Rick, my offer still stands to buy this baby from you -should you ever want to part with it!

    He was also telling me how busy he's been and how much steel he has been going through. He is a robot, lol
