    Ok. I'm almost done with the knife and it will go in my suitcase to the US on monday.
    Who is next on the list?
    I'm assuming Candlejack is out since he hasn't been active in the last couple of month.

    Short summary (without too much peeking on the others); Takes a wicked edge (Par sharpened, not as polished as i wish, but he and i continously argue on this topic ). No sticking on smaller stuff, but halving potatoes there is some. Some very slight wedging due to the thicker (and heavier) profile (compared to my other Nakiri) and i think thinner would be slightly better.... Beautiful F&F (as i expected from Will) and the high polish and KU looks very good together.

    Yepp, I'll just put it in my suitcase. I just hope TSA doesn't take it from me.... Going that direction there is lots of room, going back it's filled with cereal for the kids, clothes for the wife and the occasional knife for me :-)

    Got the addy by the way

    Had a chance to use it just a little last night. Hard to describe, but some things just feel right. Like it has a sweet spot. Once you pick it up , you don't want to put it down. We'll give it so work this week, but so far, feels like an ideal knife for limited space or cramped quarters.

    Shipped today and must say it was a pleasure finally getting to use one of Will's knives.

    Overall great little cutter, I hit the edge once on diamond loaded felt during the week and it held up very well. The release was good, but not great, a bit of wedging, but not bad for a thicker nakiri.

    I've owned 2 nakiri's and both were a bit too short at ~165 so this one was also shorter than ideal (guessing my ideal nakiri would be 190-200). That said, it performed admirably, balance/feel was excellent. Most impressed with the kurouchi finish on this one and somewhat surprised that it is something that you don't offer. Better in my eyes than most that I've tried--not sure if this is exactly kurouchi or what, but again I really liked it. Only change I would make would be to have it be carbon.

    There is a small hairline fracture in the ferrule, but looks like it can easily be fixed with a touch of glue.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity with this one, makes me even more excited to have one of your gyuto's on the way!

    Cheers
