Very nice work, Pierre.

I have seen Alabama Damascus on eBay, and wondered what knives made from it would look like.

Congrats to Line Cooked. Your first knife from Pierre? It won't be the last.

I have absolutely no use for a nakiri, but I would have bought this one without even thinking about it. What a beauty.

I can't wait till our craftsmen-members here start making single-bevels. Pierre, your nakiri is beautiful. The profile is flatter than most that I've seen -- I would love to play with this.

Here is a little video to show the shimmer on this damascus, as well allow you to see the grinds and tapers...

My first Pierre...

Haha, you're in for a treat. Half the fun of buying a Pierre knife is watching it go through Canada Post and U.S. Customs. It's like... sipping scotch and watching cookies bake, while getting a backrub from Scarlett Johansson.

Wow, that video really shows off the knife, I love how the pattern is unique to each side and how well the wood of the handle matches the knife. A stellar piece of work.

That handle is great Pierre. It must be very hard to match the 2 woods and the horn without them looking the same but you have managed it, and the liners sort of break it up. One of the best handles I've ever seen. I like how all your handles are totally different

That video was nice to show off what the knife is all about. Am I the only one who kept turning my iPhone in an attempt to move the blade to the angle I was impatiently awaiting. I caught myself doing so and felt like a 4 year old playing a video game....

Hahahaha! You had me going for a bit! I was going to order one of my own knives just to get the scotch and back rub!!
