The cherry wood handle is extremely light and soft in hand,it feels great. It is a D-Shaped handle,I don’t not believe that is mentioned on the 240 but the video for the 210 has an oval handle but the one I received is in fact a D-Shape. 0.3
The knife is clad in SS then has another finishing layer with the hammered iron. You will see a patina along the edge and the hammered section of knife but not in the middle part.
Overall I put this through a grueling work out today at work and the edge stayed great,the steel seems a bit more durable then other white steel #2 I’ve had. And although this knife is much thicker in the spine and has a taller hight is still performs like a laser! Overall very satisfied,and had excellent customer service. I originally ordered the 210 but it went out of stock moments before Mark offered me the 240 for no extra cost he even sent it on a faster shipping!

I reserve the five star mark for the truly best. That said,at the price,this is a great knife. Build is a little rustic and the handle is basic. Blade and geometry is great. Grind is nice and effective. It is pretty stiff and feels substantial in the hand. Beautiful edge patina will develop after a few hours of work. This is a massive step up from the local kitchen store inventory. I have a few German and shun pieces,and itto outperform them all.0.3
