First: Pierre Rodrigue trio: CPM154 paring and petty, O1 suji

Last: Fowler cable damascus gyuto. Newest is actually a Mike Davis petty w/ Del damascus, but not really a custom as it was not made to order for me.

Grail: Tough one! For artistry, an HHH. For simple beauty, a Devin Thomas. For more savage beauty, a Bill Burke. And for thier own unique stylings, a Harner!

I like this thread.

First: A Devin damascus petty leftover from a knife show (but that wasn't custom for me). I guess my set of three Rodrigues would be the first I had some input into making.

Last: Adam Marr Honesuki with linen micarta handle.

Grail: A Burke suji similar to Coin's, but I also nabbed some of Randy's meteorite, so let's see how that project comes out :)

Edit: I edited out a comment on custom definition.

Mmhh, my first was a 285 Carter sujihiki, the last was a while ago - the nakiri by Butch. And I almost don't dare saying this, but I am not sure what my grail would be. I was pretty impressed by Salty's demo of Mario's knife and I'd love to try out the knives from all the makers here but I dn't have a knife that keeps me awake, thinking about it.

I thought about that meteorite Damascus. How ridiculous in a good way and awesome. How does anyone ever top that.

Easy 1,000,000 layer meteorite Damascus. With an 18 kt "indestructible" gold bloster maybe?

Last: Devin Thomas 150mm Carbon Petty

Grail: A collaborative work between all the knife makers here. Taken place over 1 month in an undisclosed location, and the dvd copy of the HBO miniseries inspired by the event!! (Maybe, just maybe, I've had a bit too much to drink)

First was either my Rodrigue, or sort of, my Carter that I changed the handle on.
Last one was a Carter suji that I got from Rick. Not surprisingly, the three I just mentioned get lots of use!
My Grail knife is undecided, but it'll likely be a collaborative effort between Pierre and myself. I also have a thing for Randy's knives, so I really can't decide on this one.

*I need to add that I think I am struggling with the "Grail", because I get to use it whenever I want. I think I'll have a hard time topping the Rodrigue....
