    I received my prize knife about 1 week ago. It is a real beauty. Made in the USA, seriously sharp, and has a beautiful handle on it. It has a lifetime warranty that goes with it so if it breaks under normal circumstances they will replace it for free, If I break it using it as a pry bar or screwdriver they will still replace it but I would have to pay half price. Not only that, but the knife may be returned any time during it's life for a free tune up, which includes polishing & resharpening. All I need to do is include $3 for shipping.

    The knife is the best slicing knife I have ever used. You can slice an onion so thin you can see through it. It slices soft tomato's and soft bread effortlessly. The biggest surprise was how well it slices sushi. We make sushi all the time & it takes a special knife to slice it especially if you make it with the rice on the outside. This knife slices right through without moving one grain of rice. 

    Personally I would never pay $200 for a knife, but this knife is worth every penny. It looks like it will last a lifetime, I may have to put it in my will for my Grandson who is in Culinary School. Here's a couple of photo's of the knife.

    Beautiful knife, and you earned it. I am curious what the 8 divots on the blade are there for.

    I think the divots are supposed to help stuff to not stick to your blade while slicing.

    That is one beauty of a blade. I was admiring it when I first saw it was the prize, now hearing more about it I may have to buy one for myself. Do all their knives come with that warranty and service plan standard?[​IMG]  If so, that coupled with that USA stamp on the ricasso I think I may give them a shot.

    The part about not destroying my sushi doesn't hurt either.[​IMG]
