Devin asked for some help getting these posted. I'm sure he'll be along with some details. It's sure not ugly, eh! :D

I was just commenting for Salty to show his honyaki suji, but this will hold me over for now :)

Why can't I just be rich?

Beautiful as always. Does that have a bit more curved profile than the ITK ones?

Wow. Very nice! Damascus ferrule is a nice touch. I'd love to see the handle made from a wood with more saturated color so it contrasts more with the fantastically beautiful blade - but it looks fantastic as it is, too!

I'm already very happy to own & use some of Devin's non-damascus handiwork, so I'm content to drool over this eye-candy without actually owning it ;)

wow, that is a beautiful knife. I could see paring that with the O1 suji Pierre made for me last year.

Wow. The wood choice is right on, imo. Really elegant and understated for being so extravagant!

Hi Hoss, you wanna trade this for a 2002 Sebring convertible with slight 'issues'? :D Really a great knife, love the shape of it. Is that black ash?

Thanks everyone.

It's a 300mm suji with black ash burl, three color mokume on the ferrule and butt cap, O-1 and 15n20 bubble wrap damascus.

It's for Dillard for working on my web site.

Devin. That is an amazing knife. I am going to open this thread right before bed in hopes that I dream it is mine.

Ok, seriously I will tell my boss to give me 1 extra working day every week so I can afford one. This is killing me, i always have a softspot and tend to collect a suji, it's my main working knife. You guys can keep posting high end gyutou and I still can control myself, but not a killer suji like this.

It seems like Hoss's waiting list is worse the Bob Kramers these days. Could we do a forum group buy for some scimitar knives like Salty's? Bet we could get more then a few here to sing up for that?
Good to see ya Hoss I was scared I lost you when Mike & Adam kicked me off KF

Count me in, my budding interest in charcuterie and likelihood of building a smokehouse in my backyard will make a scimitar absolutely necessary.

Wow, that suji is unbelievable beautiful but the ferrule takes it over the top IMO.

BTW, Devin, I am really enjoying that snakewood damascus parer that you sold me. It is absolutely decadent to own and use such a knife.

That is definately a strong candidate for "The worlds most beautiful chefs knife"!

Why don't you plan on attending the ECG. You can play with my WFO if you'd like, and meet Hoss in person :) We'll have it fired up for some pizza baking most likely.

That is a wonderful invitation, thanks. Where is the ECG held? I live in Toronto, Ontario BTW.

Dillard lives pretty close to me :D

Did he sign up here? I know he mentioned to me he was entering the military at the start of the year (air force?) ... If Hoss or the man himself can comment I'd like to know. Would like to keep in touch with the web man Dillard ... He's a good knife nut/web guy to know for those who haven't chatted with him.

Dillard

I just got signed up today Bryan. Thanks for all the compliments on the suji everyone, we should have a gyuto to show you also very soon.

I am indeed joining the Army soon, but I will try and keep current on the forums if anyone ever needs to contact me for anything.

Hey, Dillard!

I noticed you hadn't been posting, and concluded you were off in basic training.

If you need someone to care for your knives while you're gone, keep me in mind. :D
