Here is the one I bought. And that's the place I bought it- Cutlery and More. I've had great luck with them, and I've bought quite a bit of stuff from 'em.

BTW, I'm pretty fortunate to have a very good kitchen supply store in my town (and they have a web store, too). They carry a good array of knives, including Forschner Fibrox and Shun, but at the moment they have almost nothing in stock! They had a big sale on the Fibrox knives and are down to maybe 2 different ones left. And they only have 2 Shun knives in stock (I have more than they do!) but hopefully they'll get new stock in soon.

Even with a good local store I still buy a lot online. I get what I can locally but few B&M stores stock a lot of stuff. CutleryAndMore.com has a huge amount of stuff in stock and they ship free for orders over $59. I highly recommend both stores!

My new Hattori showed up today! Pretty fast shipping. The knife itself is gorgeous, wonderful finish and beautiful lines. And it cuts like a lightsaber as you'd expect from a Hattori. It's definately a different look than the HD line, and I'll admit I prefer the looks of their Damascus, but the handle of the FH is terrific.

I'll post some more when I have a chance to use it a bit.

A couple of pictures:









Not the best photography but you get the idea.

Sweet! The handle looks comfortable, maybe even for my smaller hands. I agree the Damascus look is beautiful but I rather have performance over looks. Boo, now I really want one. That and the Apex Edge Pro Sharpener.

The Edge Pro Apex is an incredible peice of hardware. I'll never get rid of mine...unless I eventually get the Pro model.

You know, I've often thought of buying a used EdgePro Apex...

Excellent addition! Perfect for seeking out that which is too long and shortening it.

Thanks, DrT88. My pictures came out a bit too dark, should've used a different setting on my camera (I hadn't used it in awhile, forgot which ones work best).
