I read the title and thought this was the Norse equivalent of a Richard Gere/Hamster trick.

Nothing! I am done buying knives. 2013 is the year for accessories and tools. I need sheaths and sayas for my babies.

For me, suji of some sort, Gengetsu, something from Devin, something from Pierre and something from Dave....

This is a photoshopped pic of one I've got coming from Pierre. S35VN, 20 cm long, a variation of Lefty's pettysuki.

Rick, that is a sexy beast. I doubt you are going to put that one down.

It was tough sending Lefty's back to him, so I would agree.

Hoping 2013 is the Year of the Burke.

I'm new to this, so what isn't coming down the pipe -- er, pike -- for me?

I want to learn to break down whole fish, so a deba.

I wish to prepare my own nigirizushi, so a yanagi.

I would love to attempt to try to possibly get started learning to maybe some day begin to get the hang of katsuramuki, so usuba.

I would love to have something more robust for breaking down chicken and parting other bone-in proteins, so honesuki/garasuki.

I need something a little more agile for small items than my bigger gyuto, so a better-than-average petty.

Officially in the pipeline? A Mike Henry-re-handled wa-conversion of the Tojiro 270 ITK "bread" knife, and some time soon after that a nice, long, single-bevel slicer of some sort. Unofficially in the pipeline? Re-handling my nakiri and possibly my gyuto (though I honestly like its stock ho D-handle).

For 2013, I'm hoping for one of Will Catchside's feather damascus gyutos and a Tsourkan beauty.

WillC got some really interesting knives.
His feather are beautiful! .) Good choice. Marko is a safe buy, gotta love his knives. They are performers combined with beauty:)

Rick, that will be the knife of all knives (no pressure, Pierre). I can't wait to see that one come to fruition.

I just keep imagining an old Irish Granny saying, "Ah, ip yer pipe". Followed by her slightly older looking husband in a gray wool cardigan responding, "Nay womun, doon YER pipe".

Rodrigue S35vn wa gyuto 270mm in the works, fork in the works, then sujihiki. After that when finances allow it will be a long blade in feather from Devin probably a suji maybe a Devin/Marko collaboration with saya.

For me I have a 180mm Nakiri on the way from Dave. After that I think I'll be going for a 240mm Gyuto of some sort and also a clever, thinking a CCK would be a good start. Also a J-Nat I think would be a nice addition to my stone setup.

Another newbie here and still ordering/trying out various makers wares (stock rather than custom at present). Next years a long way off and I'm sure there will be numerous purchases before then. This year looking to acquire knives from both Heiji and teruyasu Fujiwara. Next year well I'll probably concentrate money on fewer knives so will look more for custom purchases, I will try out Will Catcheside as as a fellow Brit I'd like to support. I know little about knives at present but am learning fast and would love to design something totally original (learning throughout this year my needs) as a project for someone?

I'd also love to start making some nice handles out of British hardwoods being a carpenter (in the past) I 'd love to see what I can come up with time permitting.

For 2012, I've got a Marko that will hopefully be in the works soon. Then hopefully later this year, a collaboration between Devin, Dave, and Stefan. I'm sure I'll break down and make a few other purchases in that time though. Then 2013 will be the year of the Burke!

I have a 200mm funayuki-inspired S35VN "tomato knife" coming from Pierre, and a 7.6 sun Carter HG funayuki "in the works" for sometime this summer. After that, I see myself bending Marko's ear for a carbon suji, but probably not until the end of the year. Too many other financial obligations.

I'm waiting for 240mm gyuto ground by a bald man on the other side of the earth, that's it for now... :)

Well I f*cked up my promise for 2012 for second time this year :)

Looks like a 160 DT Feather Guyto with a masterpiece of musk ox wa handle is gonna be made :) Unsure about the ferrule on this one.
But this time I really mean no more new knives, after this one...

Sounds like a sweet knife Oivind! Seeing some of your previous commissioned work I know you have great taste can't wait to see the final product. For me I'm looking to add some shiges to my line up, a Usuba and maybe a 270mm gyuto and a suji from Marko. Also gonna try and get marko to rehandle my current shiges: 180mm gyuto, 240mm gyuto, 300 mm yangi (redwood handle maybe a spacer or endcap of ivory from sons generous giveaway and a black horn ferrule in marko's new D handle). But to do that I need to have my knives in front of me and they are currently 1,000 miles away.

No will power, like the rest of us.

Here's a teaser, Øivind:

Exactly what i'm holding out for. I'm just so impressed with Will's builds, not that the other US guys aren't making museum quality pieces too, just something about that feather damascus make me say wow every time I see it. I'm leaning toward one of those Ninja knives he makes. Want something longish that can slice and prep. Will and I have already had some initial discussions. My bank account is trembling.

HHH 1095 240mm K tip and 7.5-8" 1095 Nakiri blank (may be done in a week or so!!), 300mm White #2 Gesshin Ginga Was Sujihiki from JKI, possibly a HHH 210mm Feather gyuto

Thanks for the pic Rick.
Gotta love that feather :)


I see a trend in KFF members choosing american makers over japanese makers....
how come?

SameGuy
05-19-2012, 09:47 AM
Perhaps because it's easier (and takes less time) to get a full-custom from American/Canadian craftsmen than from the few still making them in Japan?

This forum, maybe...
2013: Gengetsu, another Rottman custom, something from Dave and hopefully something from Randy. Then in 2013 I have to get a Devin custom.

Its an American forum and I detect a certain partisan feel which I guess is no bad thing. I yearn for great British made knives for example as a Brit but alas have very little choice. I have no other affiliation to particular makers but must admit am more attracted to Japanese knives over those made in the US I love the traditional aspect and am attracted more by function and a knife that tells a story and love for example kurouchi and forging marks/hammering etc... over prettty shapes/patterns that are neither functional or for me particularly attractive.
