Congratulations. It is one of the most beautiful Japanese styled knives I have ever seen. Much more beautiful than some of the Nenohi and others that have graced the web.

i am at a loss in terms of trying to figure out a way to describe how impressed i am with that damascus. you know - we shouldn't even call it "damascus" anymore because this is something else so far beyond "damascus" that it'd be like calling a category 5 hurricane a "rainstorm"

Thanks that's quite the compliment.

Thanks everyone.

Beautiful Devin, is that multibar? Or does the basketweave change somehow? Either way, WOW! Well done!

Damascus, this is so beyond damascus. This level of metal craftsmanship is more like Steel Art.

Yikes! What's a gishiki?
Gishiki Bocho
Gishiki Bocho is for the knife to ceremonies for Inperial Court or Shinto Shrine to fillet fish without touching the fish with hands. Using just the knife and silver chopsticks. It needs high skill of knife handling and culinary art knowledge to be the person. Gishiki Bocho is sometimes called Shiki Bocho as abbreviation form. It has been history to be used the knife for over 350 years in Japan.

What impresses me about Hoss is is ability to raise the bar!

The knife it self is impressive, but what I find most impressive is the hours of manual labor put into this one. It takes a LOT of skills, patience and pasion for the work. Hoss seams to put the ecomical boarders aside to create a masterpiece like this. Thaks Hoss for keeping the world of knives in continues development. I hope to once meet you personally, just to meet the man behind the knives.

I dont only buy knives of astetical point of view, I also invest in the maker himself!
You are worth your own weight in gold (and that should make you insane rich) :P

Im still a fan of your work! Free dinner and lunch if you ever come to Norway :)
