    What's your impression of the Cut Brooklyn compared to the others in your armamentarium?

    Another asked me a very similar question. This was my response:

    "I got mine in 2013, and Joel said it was made from an unusually thicker stock of 52100. I'm not sure about his grinds currently, but this one does have decent convexing. It suffers from some food sticking, and did have a little wedging. After a little thinning behind the edge, that wedging is gone.
    As for the I find it very comfortable. Works great in multiple grip styles.
    If I were still in the thick of prep hell, tons of veggies that needed quick work on top of some finer cuts, I'd definitely bring this knife with me. But today I'm not chopping 50 plus of mire poix, poixicing 4cs potatoes, mincing quarts of shallots and garlic. I do keep the knife with me though, as some days I just want to chop a bunch of sh¡t, but those days are far and few between. No complaints though, with the knife or with work [​IMG]

    Hope that gives you a little more insight."

    Then I also offered to sell it.

    That has been my impression as well. Although I won't sell mine. But compared to the others, what do they do or not do, how do they feel, compared to the cut Brooklyn?

    He sure as heck ain't the only one.

    The one on the right isn't mine, and the one in the middle I just got.

    I like the profile on the middle one the most. I wouldn't kick any off my rack though :)

  15. We are all a bit envious of your Billup collection! Want to tell us a bit more about how each came to be. Did you buy these all direct from Andy? =)

    A fellow member here has offered me a chance to spend some quality time with the Damascus Billipp, so I obviously jumped on that.
    The middle one was sold to me by yet another forum member who was gracious enough to accept my offer.
    Basically, I buy Billipp's. You may have seen signs along the roads that say either "we buy houses" or "we buy cars", well that's the gist of how I am with Billipp's work... and about ten (or so) other gents around here.
    I firmly believe in good customer care and support. And good product obviously. For me you can't have one without the other. Several makers offer these in spades. For those who don't, well they can pound sand for all I care.

    Another one I got earlier this year. In fact this was the first knife of the year for me. Kochi carbon kiritsuke:
