Must say i am starting to like using the Sheepdog XL in food prep. It requires a fine touch. That blade just glides through everything.

I might even consider getting a knife maker to modify the blade for me. I want to grind down the flipper. I want to use the knife. Not play flippety flip flip.  :imaposer:

I find the blade a tad to thick and the magaffter which opens the blade on the bottom restrictive when chopping.  But its still very good

Grind the "fucker" of to your liking.   :biggrin: 

I open the blade, make a mark where it is level with the blade on a flat surface, then grind it off, aggressively,  just before the mark then use a 400-600 grit to polish it again.   :thumleft:
