8" chef with hamon in 1095, copper hardware, cocobolo, and black G10 liners
Ian, those are some really great designs. I in particular find the chef/gyuto handles with tapered front particularly interesting - how do they sit in hand? The 8" chef with copper hardware looks great.
Thank you, The knives with a tapered front provide an easier transition on the hands when using a pinch grip but have enough surface area for comfortable handling. That's my opinion and did make the knife, so I guess take it with a grain of salt?
The chef with copper has an lightly tapered octagonal shape that gives a similar feel to traditional wa handles in terms of shape. It's heavier because of the full tang and copper bolster so it won't feel as nimble as a wa handle, but it does balance right in front of the bolster.
The Suji looks awesome. For the video - I hope you did not hold the camera in your hand when it was taken given the power the laser has to have ...
You have no idea how hard it was for me not to snatch that suji up even before you finished it Ian! Looks great! But I already told you that hah!
Skills lime those handles can't wait to see mine
