    I don't think i can add anything to what's allready been said about this set, apart from the fact that it's one hell of a carving set.

    I'm just glad i commisioned one while i can still afford to. In fact i think my next purchace will be a Catcheside suji to compliment my gyuto. This is going to be my only chance of getting my hand's on custom knives of this quality before Will realises he should be charging double for work of this quality.

    Expect an email about another commision pretty soon Will.

    Ha! Good luck, red spacers aren't really Marko's thing...

    Ha ha thanks Guys. To me the handle feel a little more comfortable than standard octagonal. The taper allows more comfortable pinch grip and the swells and narrows in the right places seem to make it more comfortable and stable to hold for my hand with my hand less cramped. This was a good one to test it out on as they won't be using them for 10 hour shifts I guess I need to let some of you test one out for extended periods of use in the future.

    Thanks Dave, looks like the handles worked out. I had a bbq/party on Saturday and Tom came to pick up the work and have a burger. He was very pleased and says he can't believe he has to give them away.

    I like the way you made the handles alike each other, but not the same.
