A ceramic layer has been applied on the blades' faces. Just curious how it will look after a thinning session.
Love the image of your very tall rock-chopping guy and low counter!
After much (but clearly not enough) research, I ordered last week some Classic Ikon knives. I haven't received them yet and today I happened to come across the XLine so I ordered one to see how it compares.
Alas, that won't tell me how well their "newly developed transparent ceramic coating [which] gives the blade even more robustness" will last.
And now I'm wondering about your "fat belly and high tip" comment. Are you not a fan of Wusthof knives?
