I am the original owner, I ordered on Fri, Mar 26, 2021, now I feel kind of rude ditching it before we hit our one year anniversary! :oops:
It has been used gingerly, never sharpened on stones, may have hit a leather strop a couple times. The main reason being is that I have a lot of gyutos and as nice as this is, I don't seem to reach for it too much, although it is quite a monster shallot slayer. It did have a couple marks up on one side near where you would pinch grip it, I took them through a progression of sandpaper from 1500 -7000 grit and it looks good. You will see on the pics that there is a nice patina forming, I'm not going to do anything with that.
Q: what did the dad say when he left the lollipop store?
A: so long, suckers!

the beatings <bad jokes> will continue, until moral improves <or this knife is sold!>
