    Check Health Dept. and your work kitchen specs about wood grips. Most kitchen cutlery has molded synthetic handles for sanitation reasons.

    After using it a week or so ( in a professional setting)I could see a bit of light glinting in some spots, so I sharpied the edge and basically Stropped it on 1500 and then 2500 sandpaper.

    Holy Cow! I only thought it was sharp before.
    It now equals or surpasses any edged tool I've ever used.
    Its light ,thin ,sharp and holds it's edge well.
    I would recomend this knife to anyone.
    And the price is reasonable IMO for what you get. (Under $300.00)
    Which is the most I've spent on any knife. And I would buy it again w/o hesitation after experiencing it.

    Thanks for the plugs!

    In all seriousness though, I think my knife may be what you're after... if you're patient enough to wait a few months :p
