    Maestro Wu in the New York Times!

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/17/wo..._r=2&ref=world


    Some of you are familiar with Maestro Wu. Its just a picture on page 2. But still its interesting reading, and gives more info about Maestro Wu and his bombshell cutlery.

    I might even buy a knife from him, just to support his work. Anyone have any clue about the quality of his work?

    Who really know what the hell kind of steel ChiCom munitions casings are made from, especially from that era.

    This may be of some help:

    If Henckels offshore decided to make a mystery steel Chinese clever in South America then this would be it.

    The making of a 5 minute cleaver with advanced heat treat methods.

    Looks like he's got a pretty big shop. With lots of grinders. And projectiles. And a pizza oven.

    I like the part where he (accidently?) whacks the edge @ 5:09.

    I'm still not convinced.
