I sent an earlier comment about a defective knife purchased from Amazon. It was supposed to be new and when it arrived there were no signs of it having been used. However, it had cracked handles. Product EKA 755504 blue sides. EKA products are the best I have owned. Do you have new handles I could purchases? They would not have to be blue.
I purchased blue because it would be easier to find if I laid it down after use.
