Well I got home late last night and did not really get to play, but I did have a carrot on hand that looked like it needed to be smaller so I had to accommodate it. While it was quite sharp, it was no where near where I expected it to be so I think I will actually sharpen it this weekend when I have some time. I love the way it feels though. It is very light and very thin.

You expect it to be sharp enough to cut the food before the blade comes in contact?

Nice looking knife.

I expected the carrot to scream and split in two at the mere sight of this knife.

Congrats on your promotion Frank!

You may wish to get a carrot restraint system then.

Thanks.

I think he took it to bed with him. That would explain the sirens in the middle of the night...

I just might have to test the sharpness on the hand that tries to take it from me

The HD-7 is supposed to be delivered today! Given the amount of ribbing GB got, I thought about keeping it quiet. Then I started hearing this voice in my head...."forty_caliber I am your father...use the Hattori and split the carrot". Where did I leave those meds?

I got out of work early today so I was able to spend some time sharpening my knife. I think I finally have my technique close to where I want it.

Here is a video of me shaving my arm hair with my freshly sharpened knife. The video is lousy, but hopefully you will be able to see what I was seeing.
