    Breaking news!

    After long debate, and numerous conversations behind the scenes with several forum members, I am happy to announce that I will be unveiling the first run of knives designed and completed by my self. These "Professional Series" knives, will be CPM 154, western handles Gyutos, similar in blade profile to this http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...2968-250-Gyuto

    These will be cut out by laser, heat treated in salts with a cryo finish then ground, with convex faces, polished, and handled with similar woods, and bolsters. Enough that no two knives are identical.

    The design has been finalized, and will be in prototype stage shortly.

    Haha! Your funny! I got a bunch of little elfs in the shop, but had to give them a layoff, so they could get up north to help that jolly old fart that hangs out there! Some process will be farmed out, is all I was hinting at.

    Nice Pierre

    By saing "Professional Series" I guess these will be midtech line?
    Do I understand it correctly that cutting, heat treating will be subcontracted?
    Any thing else or will you be doing all the rest yourself?

    Good luck anyway, Im all custom as you know
