    Pretty handle but the way I hold a knife that sure looks like a righty.

    I've never understood how d handles aren't ok for both righties and lefties. I've used so many right-handed d's, I almost forget which is which. Both are comfortable, if you ask me. As for this one, it's hard to tell without holding it. However, it's a really nice looking knife, and I appreciate that element. Is it a true single bevel, it's hard to tell if there's an ura or not.

    Very interesting presentation - definitely visually appealing. Can't wait to see the final product Son.

    Well, I have been waiting on this for awhile and after many issues with international wire transfers and God awful bank fees it finally arrived today and it's a duzzy. It is made of Niolox and is super thin behind the blade. It is right hand biased and after some adjustments the handle is more Chef friendly and less curvy. I has a very unique finish almost granite like.It is very uniquely shaped and I don't think anyone well ever confuse it with theirs. It is just right for a small line knife and I used it to trim some NY Strip Primals today and it just breezed right through them. Fit and finish is inpeccable. The only thing that I noticed is that the tip has a little tiny birds beak thing going on, I don't think its a problem and will be gone in a session or to on the stones. Out of the box edge is pretty impressive. All in all a pretty damn fine kitchen knife from a non kitchen knife maker. I'll use it for a month and make a further review on edge retention and stiction, food release. I actually left it at work so, I'll give dimensions in a few days. By the way the Maker is from Estonia and his name is Tonu Arrak.
