    just wanted to share my new kitchen knife , a self birthday present .

    this is my Turkish Zirh , and its a small to med size !!

    cost me 30 turkish lira (around 12 usd )

    lenght overall is 15 1/2 "

    That's pretty sweet! I wonder how it compares to the Korean rustic knives I've seen on the bay (even bought one from HwaSeung forge).

    I Don't know about the Korean knives , I'll have to give them a look . I'm Really happy with this thing so far . Had to sand some of the edges over. Super sharp cutting edge , chops herbs great and works great for serving pizza !
