It occurs to me that I never reported on the Shinichi Watanabe knife I gave myself as a Christmas gift.

(click on it!)
If you recall, it's a 160mm Kintaro-Ame Sanada-Ami Petite blade. It's still sharp as the devil, with just the occasional hone on a very fine waterstone.
After five months of constant use, I have to say that I'm extremely pleased with this knife. Small and fast. Great for service work.
