Oh baby. I was tempted to try shaving with it when I first held this blade. This little knife is weighted and shaped such that it feels deceptively natural to hold,especially since it is so ridiculously sharp! I think that it will be my new favorite knife.
The geometry and length of this blade is only accentuated by is sharpness. If a similar shape was provided in a blue 2 it would be 5 stars and perfection.
