This has taken me forever, but in between orders i have been playing with a few knives. Have had a bunch of crazy stuff going on in my life and am ready to get back to it!!

So here is what everyone reading this wants to see!
First, a 1,137,168 layer billet from the guys at HHH.

Gyuto heel shot. Not a thin laser but has a good convex and cuts nice!

Suji is pretty thin and also cuts pretty well.

Should have added these a while ago, i apologize.

If only I had a grand I would have bought it by now. Just remember the one "with hamon" and how it went on a pass a round, then every one was in love. I have no idea why this is still here? And why lefty hasn't bought it yet. ;)

If I had a number I would have sold one of mine long ago. Plus a lung, you can live with one right? I mean I'd have to quit smoking but...

Best of luck with the baby. Maybe you can get your kids working on some damascus way earlier than Randy Jr!
It's a KKF krime that none of these knives have sold. I wish I could own one, maybe the gods of knifedom/cash will smile upon me soon and I could snatch one up.
All the best to you Mike, we're thinking about you.

If that gyuto weren't about as long as I am tall, it would be on its way to my house. Beautiful work!

Good luck to you, your wife, and the new little one.
