Looks good and sounds good on the website. Here's to many years of fine slicing.

Woo! You must've laid out some serious coin on that. Congrats. I am more than a little jealous!

Keep us posted on how it works for you!

Nice knife, IC.

I've been trying to convince myself I "need" another knife. Let us know how you like it.....South Paw.

That's a very nice knife. Congratulations. If you ordered it from Korin, I think you'll find that they merely gave the double bevel a left hand bias. You could have done that yourself as you sharpen and resharpen the knive thus saving twenty-five bucks.

I'm sure you're gonna love that Sujihiki.

Nice! I was just watching a Good Eats show on sushi and Japan sells these knives for up to $5,000. OMG!
