Welcome to the forum Josh.
Vertigo: Holy crap, man, that may be them. The only version I can find on a Google search also has the white handles, and the mark isn't indented... But for all I know that's a change they just made in the last few years. Hell, man... Kudos. I don't know if they're actually the same knife, but they sure look to be close enough... Thanks, brother. You just did me a solid.
Add: The name alone, Ginsu, tends to be enough to keep me from juggling it. Depending on the knife it may or may not be sharper than what I toss around usually, but the name itself adds to the intimidation. Kinda like the one time I did a quick set with some Henckels. It went just fine, but I was so anxious by the time I finished 30 seconds of tricks that I swore I'd never use them for that purpose again.
Croth: Hah, yeah... If you think you can do it, you probably can, and if you think you can't, running is the only safe bet. Good on you and your sister for having the guts - It's a rare thing that we find someone else willing to "play," and rarer still that the people who are down end up being someone we'd trust not to sue when the inevitable happens.
And aye, don't get me wrong; These things are more than sharp enough. I'm nursing my first real cut in months, an inch gash in my right palm, a half centimeter deep. I caught the thing and brought it to a stop before it went deeper/longer, I just shouldn't have even tried that time, heh.
