    Prototype 1.0

    Ok, well the surgeries slowed me down a lot! But the first of the prototypes made it to me, I finished the blades, and a quick dirty polish/machine finish, sharpened, and a quick impromptu cutting test was in order. This didn't get the stones at all, just to a 400 grit on the grinder, essentially cut the bevels. The blank is also missing a handle. Here is a quick video, nothing fancy, and please ignore my nervous cutting lack-of-technique! I kinda stalled on the potato. lol! I'm not knife skilled. If this was a hunting video, different story! The last images are to show the level of convexity. I chose to do this mid blade, for the reason if I'm against the spine, a little tweek on the ruler makes it look larger. This way I keep myself honest! Please, let me know your thoughts! By the way, 2.0 is already in the works, I have been speaking with several of you, thank you for your input. I really appreciate the time you put into your responses.

    Looks promising, Pierre. I like how you did all the demos without a handle on.

    Great "first run"! Now when can we get our hands on them? No rush, of course *thinking I should sell my 10" and 240mm gyutos to make room...*

    Exciting! I really admire your work. Can't wait to see the progression.
    Your sujihiki with the mammoth and leftys Pettysuki should just be bookmarked. I look at them so much
