    A couple pieces I finished last night for some dear friends of mine. Soon to be husband and wife, they just opened a beautiful restaurant called Spencer in Ann Arbor, MI.

    HAP40 185mm line knife with a convex laser grind, handled with a combination I've been loving recently: spalted tamarind, blackwood, and brass. The offset is, in my mind, one of the single most important tools in a contemporary kitchen. This one is handled with strongly figured bird's eye maple and an experiment with lining.

    Thanks! I've been wanting to work on offsets for a while. I hope to put some up for sale soon. We can be friends.

    I'm glad to not be the only one talking through liquor around here. Thanks for the kind words.

    Sam you really should see about getting one of the craftsman badges to augment the vendor badge (i.e. nice work)

    The adopting parent of this Shigehiro suji wanted a saya as well. Hand-carved poplar to match the ho wood; brass and bone pin to match the rest.
