    Haven't visited your site in awhile because I haven't purchased a knife for myself in a long time but damn near pulled the trigger on this today.
    I'd describe it as semi-Salty-style-Kramer-esque with a Rader-like integral bolster and handle.

    I've been eyeballing that thing for a couple weeks now, so sexy.

    I'll split it with ya and take turns. Been looking at the same knife. A certain young lady on the forums said it's one of the most comfortable knives she owns .

    Damn sexy. And it just looks....comfortable.

    LOL, was posting my comfortable quote at the same time as the last. Good to get the confirmation.

    I love it as well, I just wish it was a bit taller at the heel.

    Clearly practical knife art but I'm just not a fan of skinny pointy tips. I feel like I have more control with horizontal cuts with a more spear or Shigesq tip. Seems more and more knives are favoring this Masamoto gone Kate moss tip. Not crazy about it.

    Re the tip: it's hell on wheels for removing silverskin.

    Awesome looking knife. I have a serious weakness for integral bolsters ... can't explain. But the price keeps me all nicely cool and relaxed :)

    I am really enjoying Mareko's work. @Salty ... my feelings are the same. You can clearly see Mareko's influences and his training (Kramer), but he's brought it to a unique feel and look that is truly his. I'm really excited to watch him develop.

    That is a special knife; thanks for pouting it out. You are all correct that you can see a lot of influences in that blade -- but you can't go wrong when Lisch, Kramer, and Rader come to mind.

    What was it going for btw?

    I think it was $1550 or so.
