    Fowler passaround Spoiler

    Remember this? I just sent the Fowler Wrought Iron san mai on to WildBoar. My thoughts on the knife will be along shortly!

    I've wondered the same, but he pops up from time to time, and I've seen pics of his newer knives. I was always o the fence about his stuff before, but the new ones make me want to give one a go-around.

    He's alive and well, and just put this jewel in the mail:

    Nice pick up Rick. I bought two of his recently (on the way), but that one is a beauty.

    Thanks, K. Did you get one of his gyutos?

    Yeah, a 240 and I also got that petit gyuto that was advertised on the other forums and he is making a sheath for it. I think I am going to use that as my travel knife.

    I have one of his 240 gyutos with a convex grind. After a little tlc (slight profile adjustment to pick up the nose a bit, and some sandpaper on the spine), it is a knife worth far more than what he was charging when I last checked.
    His W2 is pretty amazing.

    975$ for a 270 dammy gyuto does not seem under priced to me.
