I took along some small hand tools, sand papers, and a small glass plate (sanding surface) And tried to keep moving ahead with orders.

Here is the result

S35VN Gyuto, hand rubbed, rounded choil and spine

G10 ferrule, and spacers, dyed blue redwood handle from Mark, has a lot of nice movement in the figure!

Nice work, Pierre. That dyed redwood from Mark looks to rival Craig Stevens' wood.

Just imagine what he could do with some chewing gum, ping pong balls, and a brassiere...

Great work, Pierre!

Great work, Pierre!

My wife almost wet herself when I read this to her after I chuckled. It's kind of humbling to realize how long it takes me to get things done when I see how much Pierre does with so little in the middle of nowhere

And to think that last week that was just two sticks and a rock.

I can't wait for the cold Canadian weather to hit you so you can spend some more time making knives, I miss seeing your work!
