    I actually simply sent my knives to Fish and said do your magic. He did 7 handles for me over the years and never let me down. I actually had him buy 3 of the knives, re-handle them then send them too me. He did a Hattori Honiseki, a Suien VC and a Misono Gyuto. I also bought one someone else had for sale a second Suien VC and later sold it to a good home. Oh and I never got any of them with a handle that wasn't absolutely comfortable to me. That is something he really excelled at with the shaping of them they seem to fit the hand perfectly.

    wowowow.

    Id say that was certainly a happy ending. I thought that Andy had already sold that cleaver -It's a really amazing looking piece. This is also your first Chinese style cleaver correct?

    Between that and the new vitamix you are going to have more soup than you know what to do with. Time to start canning? Maybe a KKF soup giveaway?

    I hope you guys all add your Fish handles to the gallery of his work here in the "Media Center." (Which should be moved to the "Knife & Gear Pictures" subforum, as it is somewhat hard to find at this point.)

    Drinky, is that yours at the bottom of post #10?

    Yep, that looks to be it. And speed shipper, Rick, has already sent the knife on its way

    It should arrive sometime next year.

    OK, next Tuesday, since Monday is a holiday.

    I sure have, but found another that wasn't there. Two of mine I let go off but all I have owned as well as now are there. These are the group #17, 20, 28, 37, 80, 118 (just added). The seventh one was a gift for someone who doesn't post and I have no pictures as they where lost on my old computer when it died. If I can get them to take a picture I will post it however it isn't a kitchen knife.

    Correct, this is my first Chinese-style cleaver, and soup season is definitely going to be fabulous this year.
