    I can tell you right now just by looking at it. It's no laser, so don't be worried by that.

    I sent this last week, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what Matt Conlan's forum name is. If anyone knows it, can you send it to me. It's on it's way to Calfornia. Great knife, thanks for including me. I'll post some more thoughts on it soon.

    Forgot to post this yesterday but I received the knife safely, thanks Jville. I will use it over the weekend and get it in the mail to the next person on Monday.

    I got it in the mail this morning to Barmoley. I should have kept it for another day or two and touched it up as it needs sharpening, but I preferred to not mess with another's knife.

    Even though it needs to be sharpened, it was sharp enough to get a feel for it. It has good geometry and cutting was never an issue, even in some decently thick carrots. I liked the forward weighted balance and weight of the knife. I made some chicken soup with lots of veggies and it performed well with everything and the food release was pretty good. I did not have the reactivity issue that I saw in an earlier picture, but as a home cook I don't have long stretches of cutting like I am sure most pros do so I was able to keep it clean and dry most of the time.

    Thank you for letting me participate in this!

    Matt

    The knife arrived safely. Will give it some work out and pass it along.

    Thanks for the opportunity.
