    ya im not in any hurry to get it. if he is backordered i have no problem waiting. this is going to be more of a home use collection piece anyway.

    kalaeb-thanks for the honesty. i do remember hearing about an overgrind at one point but it may have been you posting it. i have also heard his white is very very good. i think i will go with GZ and rehandle it because i dont have anything with a custom handle on it yet. it is wierd being on the food selling side of the business but it is going to be a good career for me.

    Carters with new handles/better finish do seem to combine the best of both worlds. Mattrud's rehandled suji makes me drool.

    Me as well...I saw you have the 7.5 Sun, I purchased a 7.1 about a month ago. Can't say I wasn't a little envious when I saw that one pop up later...
