    I spent 2 days with this...it was an interesting experience. I spent a good while examining the knife before re-reading Son's critique, mostly as a test to see how my ability in this regard has improved. I was able to identify almost all of the things Son did.

    I used it to make some chicken soup, a fruit salad, and to slice some crusty baugette. I thought it was a respectable cutter, though I could definitely feel it flexing and some slight steering when cutting through a very large onion. it did a fair job on the baugette, though not as good as my masamoto VG gyuto which seemed to deform the loaf less.

    It did a really good job cutting chicken breasts into a 1/4" dice, very clean cuts, with not much effort.

    the spine really needs a bit of rounding, I think I've become quite spoiled about this.

    Son, thanks for letting me check this out...it was a really good experience. I think this guy will be making some nice knives with a bit more experience and refinement.

    I'm travelling for work tomorrow but will try to get this in the post to Crothcipt upon arrival at my destination.
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    Just got it today. It was my fault I didn't get my address to him in time. First impression is "not bad."

    Sorry I hadn't said anything but I sent it off to Eamon quite some time ago. Before he posted about what is going on.

    Looking at pm's that was over a month ago.
