    Damn, that was looks real nice. How is the size compared to a lg kunz? Does it hold enough to sauce most dishes?

    Wow, that spoon is stunning! Looks a little more 'finished' then the DT spoons (edges eased a bit more, etc.). Thanks for taking on these development projects, as they benefit all of us!

    Aries is a tasting spoon, so its as long as a kunz (9") but the "dish" is a lot smaller, like a soup spoon.
    Arie made his by forging it to shape, kind of like how a sliver smith would "chase" a spoon ( but a hell of a lot harder ). Devan uses a press, so that's one reasion they look different. The steel make up is also different Ariel used 304 & 429MB, it has the looks but it won't temper. Hoss put a spring temper to his spoon as I asked for. Hoss's spoon is "cleaner" looking & more refined, Aries is a free form pice of art.

    I like the oyster knife idea; been toying with that myself for a while. Gotta add a matching clam knife though.

    If you have not yet started working on it let me send you "the best serving spoon" to use as a reference as the kunz spoon has been done already, & I want to keep my reputation as the muses behind all the custom Damascus spoons in the world. Dam were were all you guys 6 years ago when I started on this quest.
    Colin,
    I will give you the option on the first one I am happy with, and if you want to send me "the best serving spoon" I'll give that a shot too. I think spoons are cool!

    Ok gusy heres an update on where I am. I got the first billet of damascus done, 3 more bars gyuto-sized and I got the stainless billet for the moribashi fused and ready to forge down. And then I had another crazy idea, to take some small pieces of damascus and fuse them onto the sides of an existing bar. I spent all day( I was up until 1:30 am working on this) I started with a bar of O-1 and L-6 for the core and added a few more pieces of that mix as well. Then I started adding the small pieces. Layer upon layer of them, about half a dozen at a time. This differs from the way I normally make damascus, I usually start with a big stack and work it until its done. this billet got piesecs a few at a time, but they were finished patterns. I got a look at the outside of the bar a few times while I was working it and I think it will be monster cool. Its kinda like a crazy quilt of patterns. I was hoping that it would be big enough for 2 gyutos, but sadly it is only big enough for one, and maybe a couple of parers or pettys. It was kinda fun and a bit challenging at the same time. Ok now its back to work.
