    Beautiful knives. Handles look like they would be very comfortable. Great steel too, vanadis 23 at 69 HRC must be something else....

    Profiles look good too.

    because i am fokused on max. edge holding with high end steels.

    Hard matrix and hard fine carbides = max long sharpness ;)

    I will gladly take both of them. Both feel fantastic in hand. I prefer the looks of the SanMai, but the Mono was an extension of my hand. It just felt perfect in every regard, mighty blade!

    But I am sure I would send them back to you if they ever need a sharpening...

    The V23 San Mai is one of the coolest looking knives ever imo

    Both knives are very beautiful!

    I guess it wouldn't be very fun to do hand sanded finish on that Vanadis 23 :D
