    Time to thank you

    It has been just over 2 years since I made my first gyuto ,which ended up with my friend Rami and soon after took my first custom order from another friend,Al ( cheflarge )
    While I was checking records for the business I realised I made many knives for people both in fora and forums , I would like to thank you for keeping me busy and thank you for your support .
    Especially I owe a big thank you to the people who supported me in my first year of making knives , many of you bought seconds , thirds and even 7th's ( thanks Sam )
    it is a very uphill battle which challenges many new and even established makers to a breaking point , I believe I managed to overcome that bump

    To show my gratitude I will be giving away a 170mm stainless to carbon clad (takefu vtoku San mai ) western gyuto . For those who currently own any of my knives , bought direct of me , knives and stones or bought from bst, post a picture of the knife you own and feel free to comment , I will keep this thread active for 2 weeks or so since some don't check the forums as often as the others to give everyone more chances to enter . I will do a random number generator to determine the winner , each knife you own from me will give you ONE entry , if you have two knives you get to post 2 entries and more chances of winning the drawing. People who have a knife in transit ( Lucretia) get to post as well regardless of having one in front of them or not
    Here is the picture of the knife for the drawing

    Sorry for the crappy pics. This knife never really sits idle for photo shoots.
