Gyuto, 210mm, in 52100 carbon steel.

It’s made by Shi han Knives in New Mexico https://www.shihanfineknives.com

It’s an interesting blade, the steel if alive, it reacts to food like you see above and patinas in an instant, but cleans up; it’s a high maintance steel and will rust if you leave it wet, I apply a food safe Japanese.oil during storage. The edge is razor sharp and slightly toothy and the blade is thin, slicing is very effortless and accurate, for a tall blade it’s easy to steer because it’s razor sharp and thin; it’s considered a Chef’s knife but it’s too thin for an all purpose Chef’s IMO. The maker has an impressive story and philosophy, his ‘zero point’ philosophy, he talks about it in the link.

So I just got a Kizer Soze for a good deal and said what the hell. It's not the most practical EDC but a nicely made knife nonetheless. The false edge can easily be sharpened if someone wanted too.

I like Kizer knives. Very good quality for the price. I bought a Kizer mini Sheepdog. It was my everyday carry until just recently. I picked up a Benchmade Blue Bugout which has become my EDC.

If the Bugout was $20 less, or the same price with nice G10 scales instead of the FRN (plastic scales), I would consider getting one.

But, just recently picked up a Real Steel H5 Gerfalcon for just $34!

I had the same thoughts too. I was also concerned with the fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) scales. It is very very light and thin. It fits my EDC for now. I have several that I rotate depending on my needs or whim.

I wasn’t planning on buying this but one of my knife dealers was having open house after they relocated, A Perfect Edge Cutlery in San Mateo, and I was working at their event on Saturday helping out and they had a ZT 0301 in the case and a new one in the box and the owner gave me a great deal so I grabbed it. They’re going to be having a clearance sale coming up in April, if you’re in the area.

I need to get a bigger clip for this beast...
