    If I could add one last thing to my above statement, it's to avoid stagnation at all costs. Youve done well with the idea of playing with new steels and blade shapes. Btw the nakiri has been waiting for you. Your grind + that shape is going to be incredible, a true laser that will strike fear in veggies the whole world over. I look forward to seeing what you come up with and where the iron takes you. Keep up the good work and the rest will take care of itself. As I said before in the knife world your something different and I(we) kinda like that.

    Again thanks for all the great advice. I was sort expecting a bunch of jokes

    I'm sending the knife to BKultra, as he hit it off, and refreshed my thoughts on that subject.

    I'm feeling very optimistic today, much thanks to you guys. Hope you'll have a nice friday.

    With your inspirational help, coming up is playing with a handle material I believe will make love with the hands - birch bark. It's probably a big pain to work, but it's sexy.

    I was driving a bit today to pick up a wool rug (my girlfriend is on some wool craze) and I was thinking about knives as usual.

    I don't see competition between knifemakers, I believe quality knives will just expand the (very marginal) market for high end knives, and the more good knives out there the better.

    So something like this, when I began i did a bunch of trialing to figure out what kind of geometry I wanted on my knives, as you can read in the other forum. I consider this to be like a recipe, and I don't mind sharing it, and if someone want to try making a knife based on that recipe they should not hesitate.
    I don't see it as "copying" or anything like that, because it all comes down to execution. And freehanding a good grind on a knife does take some practice/skill/talent/effort etc.

    And then there's the shape, handle, materials, how they're treated... Everything comes together (and matters) to make a nice knife.

    Back to work. Cheers!

    Since I'm wearing a old Nine Inch Nails sweater, the song title "help me I'm in hell" comes to mind. Grinding a 360 suji

    Haha I guess. It's just that looking at it from the spine doesn't tell that..
