I also like the same scimitar,but with the Granton edge.
I also found that for comps,the 12 in slicer works better for me,than our 14 inch.
It is a little less flexible,and works well up to about 16 lbs,or so.
We have also used Knife Merchant for years.
He will always be competitive,and will talk you out of the wrong knives,and encourage the correct one ,for your needs.
