    Stephan Fowler Custom Order

    This is still in Georgia, but will be mailed to me tomorrow with a matching maple saya/red pin. Can't wait to get it. I will update with pics, specs and a review ASAP!

    It looks like an improvement over previous work. It may be the angle but the handle and machi look incongruous, as is often the case with Fowlers. What is it?

    sorry but I don't know what a machi is

    the handle is curly maple with stainless and red spacers and a horn ferrule

    the knife is a suji/petty 210

    You might want to refer to Gator's Japanese Kitchen Knife Anatomy:

    I'm curious what his grind is like right now.

    My Carter and DT both make effortless cuts...but at work I ignore almost everything but my Fowler because its just a pleasure to use when I have a ton of work to bang out.

    quote from Stephan

    "The grind I've been using on these is a very slight convex from about halfway up the face terminating at the edge with .003 edge thickness and then put a primary bevel on with waterstones at a 15 degree combined angle"

    Bobcat, I hope you enjoy your new knife. I'm currently using one of Stephan's Heiji style gyutos and even though it's pretty beefy, I'm loving it.

    Looks good, I've got one on the way from Stephan too, hoping it will be as good a cutter as it is a looker
