    You're not the only that received an email from Pierre today Ed...

    I asked for something simple and elegant (preferably ebony) to match an ebony handled suji that I have on order from Jon. Pierre expressed some concern about my choice of ebony (which he explained has a tendency to want to crack with time), but he used some special wood that he has had drying for 7 years (!), so I should be in good shape. Two black pins (tough to see but they're there) with a single mosaic pin in the center.

    It looks exactly like what I had in mind. I can't wait to see it in person and will post again when it arrives.

    I think elegant is the perfect term for it. Congrats!

    Thanks Ed, you too. That koa looks solid.

    I hope the other fork owners will post away when they receive pics from Pierre (who was fun to work with by the way).

    If I did more roasts and large proteins I'd be all over this. They look incredible, Pierre!
