Exquisite, @JDelage. I'd never heard of them and so gave the knives a look. Just ... wow. Beautiful design and lovely finishing.

I just received a kitchen knife from a San Diego, CA based company called Half Face Blades. I was gifted a fixed blade at Christmas and wanted to buy one of their kitchen knives. Made with S35VN, the blade has been given a black cerakote coating along with a paint splatter look. Truth be told, I didn't want this one (I think that it's functionally wonderful but ugly as sin), but I won accidentally on eBay and ... well, here we are. I may re-list it and get rid of it.

Sorry to get all Gen Z and post a meme, but I found this “relatable”.

Just got this yesterday. I do have to admit to a bald spot on my left forearm. Just used to get shavings and kindling for a fire. Then had to use it for food prep, just to see if it could. Now cooking over the fire.

I used to check my woodworking chisels for sharpness by shaving my arm too  :D

When I used my Lansky sharpening kit for the first time I realised how much practice I needed when my newly tooled Spydey couldn’t shave arm hair.
