I just love your work, Pierre. Especially the top one gyuto, the scimitar like boning knife with the grey handle and the fillet knife looks spectacular, but I find it absolutely impossible to pick a favourite amongst these beauties. Congrats to all the new owners of these wonderful pieces of art. I just can't wait to see what you are up to next. :)

The wood is stabilized spalted maple burl.

Rick,

The 240 suji with the 3 silver spacers was a custom I ordered from Pierre. I requested that it be a little taller then a normal suji and figured it would make a great line knife. Now I have it and love it. The edge retention is great, it takes a great edge, and there is enough knuckle clearance to use it for all kinds of tasks. My only minor regret is getting a 240 (don't get me wrong, I love the knife) but I mainly use 270's.

Beautiful knife, Chuck. I've asked Pierre to make me a sujihiki, and I'm trying to get some ideas for handles. That mosaic pin in the butt looks to be a nice touch.

Yeah, that's a great looking knife. I'm dying to get a suji to go with the gyuto he did for me, doesn't feel right just having the one!

03-22-2011, 08:36 PM
Ok, a pair of pairing knives paired...

First, a 4 1/2" sheepsfoot blade of CPM 154, 416 stainless bolsters
Stabilized maple burl scales with mosaic pins
black and white vulcanized fiber spacers
and just to be a pita to myself, I mortised them.
http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu37/bladebuilder/Picture1536.jpg
http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu37/bladebuilder/Picture1540.jpg

Second, a 4" blade, traditionaly shaped
same construction as above, but with Honduran Rosewood.
http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu37/bladebuilder/Picture1537.jpg

And the pair of parers paired...
http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu37/bladebuilder/Picture1538.jpg

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy them!!

apicius9
03-22-2011, 08:40 PM
Beautiful, both of them. I love Hond. rosewood, and the shape is more what I am used to, so this would be my personal preference, but the redwood one is also excellent.

Pensacola Tiger
03-22-2011, 08:46 PM
Pierre,

That second one in rosewood is stunning.

Oh man they're nice, I love the liners!

PierreRodrigue
03-22-2011, 08:58 PM
Glad you like 'em!! The liners are a chore, but worth it. It's tedious when they are so small, not quite the same as a 300 suji!

Hopefully they turned out like we wanted :)

PierreRodrigue
04-19-2011, 07:04 PM
This one is reminiscent of the Sabitier chef knife, the bolster is tucked closer to the handle, so no issues with stones.

Specs:

50mm high at the heel

250mm cutting edge

2.5mm spine at the bolster

1.5mm mid spine

.8mm 1 inch from the tip, give or take of course... :laugh:

CPM 154 @ hrc 62, very slightly convex ground hand rubbed finish

Nickel/silver bolsters

3/16" hidden pins, and a simple center mosaic

Scales are cocobolo

Hope you like it!!

I think that must be one of the most perfect westerns i've ever seen. The profile, the mokume bolster, the ironwood, simply stunning. Everything about it seems just perfect.

I think i need to start saving my pennies.

A customer was looking for something different for his dad for fathers day, this is what we came up with.

CPM154 fillet knife 14" OAL, stainless bolsters, and some nice mammoth tooth scales.

Boy do I love me some mammoth tooth.....Great work.

Darkhoek
06-20-2011, 07:21 AM
I love the look of that mammoth molar. That is the perfect application of it, i think. It definately looks best when the whole handle is mammoth, like on this fillet knife. I believe it is to "special" or prominent to use as inlays with other materials or bolster material.

DarkHOeK

Lefty
06-20-2011, 08:03 AM
I've seen some pretty boring mammoth tooth, but the samples I've seen pierre use have all been great.
This knife makes me really impatient! Haha
Just kidding, take your time and keep doing what you're doing, Pierre!

JohnnyChance
06-20-2011, 12:35 PM
How much more mammoth you got Pierre?

I assume if you run out, being in Canada and all, you can just go in your backyard and slay another one. :razz:

Lefty
06-20-2011, 01:26 PM
That's basically the case up here. Mammoths run around like they own the place! The worst is when you catch one pushing your garbage bins around, trying to find some food scraps. :D
But, to be honest, we are the leading supplier of mammoth ivory, in the world. Most of it is purchased by Russians, but we get to keep the odd piece.

I know this is REALLY late, but I'm still lusting after this gyuto/chef knife. To me, it's the perfect balance of great profile, geometry (according to the measurements), and elegance.
As I said, it's after the fact but, this is some really beautiful work!

PierreRodrigue
07-04-2011, 08:03 PM
270mm sujihiki Heimskringla pattern, a variation on a traditional twist. HRC 61

Copper bolsters, with a slanted front face.

Black and white vulcanized fiber spacers, mosaic pins, and desert ironwood scales

This blade is thin behind the edge, between 5 and 7 thousandths of an inch.

Ballance point is near the heel.

Pierre -- that dammy suji looks very nice! One day my O1 slicer is gonna need a mate :)

Lefty
07-05-2011, 05:05 PM
David,
How are you finding the O1 in terms of reactivity and keeness? Retention would be very good based on the type of steel, but go ahead and comment on that too! ;)

WildBoar
07-05-2011, 05:56 PM
I've only used it on cooked meat, and it's developed a nice layered patina. I have never noticed any discoloration on the food, or staining on the blade.

I'm still using the edge Pierre put on it, as it has no trouble dismantling whatever roasts I throw in its path. This past weekend it was a roasted pork shoulder. The slices were pretty effortless. It's tackled some rib roasts, pork shoulders, pork loins and a turkey. Some roasts had a nice crust, and others presented only soft surfaces to the edge.

I'll be snapping a few pics of Del passaround knife tonight/ tomorrow, so I'll shoot a couple of the suji.

Lefty

Just curious, Mr. Rodrigue, how rigid is your boner? I like mine to flex and conform to the anatomy of whatever I'm boning.

Nice one! However the smaller the boner, the more rigid it is :) A larger boner will flex more mr Holmes :)

Just remember....in some instances, it's better to keep the saya on your boner whilst it is in use.

Lefty

I just thought of something.

If you keep pulling out boners like that, we'll have to change your nickname from Bear to "The Hedgehog". :D

Is that boner carbon, or is it ok if it stays wet for a while?

PierreRodrigue
04-25-2012, 10:32 AM
It is a stainless, high wear resistance, ample flex for delicate work, yet rigid enough to be counted on when the need arises. G10 for ultimate protection from unwanted bacteria and disese causing germs. I find if useing a saya, the knife looses its feel and production is reduced.

Eamon Burke
04-25-2012, 11:18 AM
Fully stainless huh? So I guess if I wipe it off more than a few times, I'd just be playing with it.

Great work, Pierre!

Can't take my eyes of that gyuto, what a beauty! The other knives are nice but they are for some reason not as fantastic as the gyuto... everything just blends so perfect on that one.

I guess you have a very happy customer out there. :)

"Nose to Tail" is a line or series of items by a company that is launching soon, carrying, ...well, darn near everything for the culinary minded person. From utensils, clothing, aprons, knives just to name a few...
They will go on line in a couple weeks. They do have a web site, that can be previewed, but not searchable yet.
