My plan was to use it as a line knife, since I always end up breaking the tips of he knives I use on a line, I might as well start out with a shape that was more sturdy. Cuts as good as it looks too.
    Very cool. I love the concept. Michael does a really good job a making dreams come true doesn't he? I bet it slices like a mofo. My Rader 270 gyuto is the best slicer I've ever used... which mildly annoys me b/c it makes it hard to justify buying a dedicated slicer.

    Guess I can't load the pic directly, but here is link to the Del I got a few weeks back. 210 gyuto. Takes a great edge. Already forming a beautiful blue patina.

    Really nice Ealy! And all the others as well!
    I bought this "Stabber" from Lefty's Sharp and Shiny Shop. I'm just loving this little knife.

    The butt cap is ivory. The handle is actually nicer looking than the photo shows--I was trying to get the damascus and the contrast on the handle is too high. The ivory is actually yellowish and figured--kinda like a hunk of parmesan cheese stuck on the end of the knife.

    There is some mighty fine blade in this thread, but with that said, kalaeb's Rader is stunning. That may have just entered my top knives of all time to be included in the ranks of Colin's suji by Bill Burke, Devin's bubblewrap damascus for Adam (watercrawl), Salty's scimitar, and a few pieces of hard core porn that Mr. Broida threw at us.
