Great knife and lovely display!
Thx for showing.

Does the diamond wiggle on this one?
I have seen a couple of early mint henckels thin blades that had their diamond attatched so tight that there was no movement possible at all.

Regards
Ger

Hi Ger,

Thank you for your kind comments. No, it does not wiggle at all. I could see some white glue residues along the diadmond edges.so it 's very tight as you said. Good obsevations!. It is the best knife I have ever had. Picked it up at SOS last year.
Happy New Year to all,
Best,
Will

Hi Will,


White residue at the diamond edges does not sound good, glued in diamond maybe ?

lets see a close up clear pic of the diamond please ?

Hi Mac 66
Here are the close-ups . Looking at it closely , could be the cut edges of the diamond itself and the black grip.

Hi Will,


Thanks for the pix, the white stuff looks like dried polish to me , not all diamonds have movement but people expect them to wiggle because it puts there mind at rest, i would not worry to much about yours.
