Thread: Custom Order Progress Update

  1. #91
    I will start on the second batch of orders next week. Waiting for my etching machine to come back from repair so I can send out the knives I have completed.

    Working on some handles and sayas in the mean time, as well as on some practice knives (refurbishing)

    Very nice. Is that a mokum or brass bolster?

    Any bottle handles to show?

    It's DT mokume.

    Not yet, need to wrap up current work, before start experimenting.

    Love it Marko. Really can not wait to see how your D-shaped handles fair.

    Matt,
    I think I am going to do a passaround on D handled gyuto and maybe a suji (as a set).
    I am thinking 240mm for gyuto and 250-270mm suji. Any suggestions on the size?

    Both D handles and blades (asymmetrically ground) will be for a right-handed user.
    I can do for a left-handed as well, but I think we have more righties.

    I am a big fan of the 240 suji (as many know). I think knives in the 240-250 range are about perfect for my pro-style use style. I am excited to one day get a finished knife from you. I really enjoyed using your prototypes and seeing the evolution. I really think you are putting out some great work.

    Current knives are quite different from that prototype.

    These pass-arounds will be basically what my customs are. I would like to get a feedback on a new grind and D handles.

    So, 240 gyuto (240mm on the edge or 240mm tip to handle?) and 250mm suji?
