Fantastic knife and fantastic-er customer service

I think this is a Goldilocks kind of knife. It's not too expensive and not too cheap. It's not too gaudy and not too banal. It's not too hard to sharpen and not made from too soft of steel. The only complaint I have is this is my first 135 mm petty and I don't think it's quite for me. Even though it's only slightly smaller than a 150 or 180 mm petty it feels a lot less versatile to me. I bought this as a citrus knife that can sit on the board or the bar, but it's too short to easily get through a medium size orange. This life is also a little bit too big for me to use as an in-hand knife other than for cleaning up meat. I prefer a 80 mm knife for in hand pairing type of work and I wish I got a 180 mm as my citrus/bar knife.

Shout out to the gentleman running the shop. They were so fast to take care of me and went above and beyond. I'll definitely keep coming back to support them.
