I recently bought two knives and a scale from Paul. I purchased the Misono UX10 santuko knife and couldn't be happier. I also purchased the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 10" french knife for a friend. I'm a professional cook with a backround in engineering and manual labour, so I have an appreciation for workmanship and quality. I've put many a tool through tests of endurance that truly test their mettle. The UX10 is what I expected and more. After i used a sandstone to put my own blade road and edge to the knife, I've never dealt with something this sharp before! I've already dropped it tip down on a tile floor, and cut through the bones of farm-raised guinea hen without damage to the blade (even after i put a super-thin edge on it). Peeling super-hard squash skin it did effortlessly without feeling stress in the blade.
Paul was amazing to deal with. Very friendly and helpful. I picked up my product in person and in conversation discovered that he is excited and passionate about food, baking in particular. Deals honestly with people and offers quality product which is a sigh of relief these days. I'll definately be a return customer. Looking forward to those pizza stones you plan to get in Paul!
