Scott, Overall, not bad for a first.
Your closing statement about the jimping seems like some may think you are giving the knife a over all 5-6 on a ten scale. I think giving the jimping comment &
then give a closing statement about the knife in the next paragraph would be a bit clearer to readers.

The "Deal Breaker" for me on this model is that a spear point with a high center four sided grind makes a lousy slicer and cutter. Having that wedge in the middle along with a one sided edge made me sell that one and not order any more.
