Wait a minute, I'm still in on this one, right? I somehow missed iso's message. For some reason I was thinking that it was already on the way.

Yes, you are still on the list...the knife is doing the west coast tour, before coming back east.

Ron’s comments on W2 Guyto Passaround

Post by Ut_ron » Tue Apr 30, 2019 11:31 am

First impressions wow a great looking knife. I have never used one of his knives before but based upon other comments I expected great fit and finished. Well it is all of that and more then I expected.

Home cook so didn’t really put this through a heavy work out. I did use it for several dinners and one for 16.

I found the profile to work very well for how I use a knife. Nice tip that was easy to do small cuts given its size.

Weight: 197g 6.9oz
Height: 45mm at the heel
Length 246mm, choil to tip
Length 410mm, total

Balance point is right at the neck. Makes the knife feel lighter than the actual weight. I was surprised when I put it on the scale.

Interesting patina getting started.

Hamon is nice but not very pronounced. For cosmetic reasons I would of liked it to show more.

Handle is gorgeous.

Choil shot

Carrots was a breeze. Did not have any large but don’t expect to have anything but smooth cuts on them.

Image

Potatoes did ride up the blade but shook off easily.

I believe anybody would be happy with this knife.

Thanks Carter for the opportunity to play with one of your knives 👍👏.

Off to Jon in Cupertina in sunny California 😀.

And I am off to Sedona to celebrate our 50th wedding 💒.

Knife arrived safely! Just in time for a bunch of ribeye tonight! I noticed there’s another thread in the passaround section. Are we posting here or there or both?

Pretty solid workout so far. It has a nice blue patina now courtesy of the ribeye. The heel height is lower than I’d probably choose but that’s just personal preference. So far I’m impressed!

I’m a little curious about the profile. It has a bit of a back belly at the heel that I thought might be troublesome but in use but I really don’t notice it at all. I’ll update as I use it more.

Looks like a beautiful knife to try on a passaround enjoy.

This is on the way to Ray. I thoroughly enjoyed using this one. I’d prefer something a little taller with more of a flat spot but that’s just me. The grind on this is pretty thin but has just enough of a subtle convex shape to give pretty solid food release. The balance is nice on this one too. Thanks for including me on this Carter!

Here’s a pic post ribeye
