OUT OF THIS WORLD. Bravo, love the taller rise on the pairing knife. The H in the pin is an artistic statement in itself. Can't imagine the R&D on that design?

Thanks Guys! These should be delivered to Son very soon!

I dont know if its worth mentioning, But The suji was ground for a lefty!! :) This was a first for me, And I called on a few people in this community for advise as to how to accomplish this properly.. Thanks guys :wink:
I cant wait to hear how it cuts. I did some test cuts and felt like a fish out of water cutting with my left hand.. so Im not sure if I nailed it or fell somewhere south of a perfect lefty grind.. The paring knife on the other hand, is a 50/50 with the cutting edge left bias.. but I couldn't tell any difference in my test cutting. It just worked effortlessly and cut like a dream!

Thanks again to all who commented and for you continued support and encouragement!

God Bless
