    First: Pierre Rodrigue trio: CPM154 paring and petty, O1 suji

    Last: Fowler cable damascus gyuto. Newest is actually a Mike Davis petty w/ Del damascus, but not really a custom as it was not made to order for me.

    Grail: Tough one! For artistry, an HHH. For simple beauty, a Devin Thomas. For more savage beauty, a Bill Burke. And for thier own unique stylings, a Harner!

    I like this thread.

    First: A Devin damascus petty leftover from a knife show (but that wasn't custom for me). I guess my set of three Rodrigues would be the first I had some input into making.

    Last: Adam Marr Honesuki with linen micarta handle.

    Grail: A Burke suji similar to Coin's, but I also nabbed some of Randy's meteorite, so let's see how that project comes out

    k.

    Edit: I edited out a comment on custom definition.

    Mmhh, my first was a 285 Carter sujihiki, the last was a while ago - the nakiri by Butch. And I almost don't dare saying this, but I am not sure what my grail would be. I was pretty impressed by Salty's demo of Mario's knife and I'd love to try out the knives from all the makers here but I dn't have a knife that keeps me awake, thinking about it.

    First custom was a recently purchased Saji Damascus Chukabocho soon to be re-handled with burl and mammoth tooth, grail would be a 225x110 meteorite damascus cleaver-but not holding my breath!!!

    Hax the Cook CLEAVERS RULE!!!

    I thought about that meteorite Damascus. How ridiculous in a good way and awesome. How does anyone ever top that.
