    Looking at the photo's, it's hard to beleive you've only been making knives for a few months. Your understanding of geometry and convexity is very impressive. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on one of these beauties.

    Thanks Aphex, your way up on the list, so you shouldn't have to wait too long I have surprised myself with my progress over the last year. I suppose I made my first damascus kitchen knife more than ten years ago from scrap and a chunk of oak. I'm not really going to count that though, it was rustic to say the least. I could probably leave it buried somewhere for time team to discover and ponder.
    I think in this case my background in precision forge work and design has allowed me to move fairly quickly, the tools help a great deal as does the ability to adapt and make new ones. There is no doubt though I would still be floundering with flat grinds and slightly odd profiles if T.B.london had not visited me with his knife collection and urged me to join the Forum.

    If my maths is correct, the discount would make this knife £414, which for a full damascus gyuto with a fancy handle, makes this knife i bit of a bargain compaired to how much other knife maker's would charge.
