Have to admit that I purchased this knife due to its aesthetics - the pronounced damascus and birchwood handle make for a beautiful knife. However, after using it once upon receipt, I stored it away because it was "too pretty to use". I'm always trying to convince my wife that I'm not a collector of knives - so this one has to go since I'm not actually using it.

The knife still looks like new when it arrived, in the original packaging. It currently retails for $280, selling mine for $210 USD including shipping within CONUS. Sold!

Nice knife I was just thinking the same thing the other day. I have some really nice knives. Funny thing the other day some friend of ours came over for a cook out. I made sure the knives I used were aesthetically conservative. Why is that?? Just thinking off cuff.

And Mother's Day is May 9th. This is the kind of knife that makes a great gift for an enthusiastic home cook who isn't necessarily a knife knut. Just sayin. GLWS!

It has been awhile but I used to own one of these. Great knife very utilitarian. The R2 great edge retention. Some of the older R2 prone to micro chipping. But they usually finds there stride after the first progression. Good price
