    You don't even have to be a "knife nut" to have emotions stirred in you when you look at these photos. If you don't feel something move inside of you looking at these then you need to go sit in a quiet room and search yourself for what is missing. There are some real unique handles here and some of the best cleaver rehandles I have seen to date.

    Dave put it in your mind as I will place it in mind that in the future I will ask of you to do a "Fish" inspired rehandle of a cleaver for a good friend of mine. Thought placed and set in motion.

    Kind Regards

    This is SO worthy of bumping. A lot of guys (like me) who are newer around here don't know who Fish was. I only became curious about him because of his name on KF's itk. He lived in the same town in Maui that a couple of my friends live in, but I figured something was up because he hadn't posted in several years.
    All these pieces are truly beautiful works of art. If you own a Fish, you are a lucky guy!

    I agree! One day I'll get my hands on one, and until then, I'll likely consider my collection incomplete.

    Well, I traded a beautiful 330 Watanabe suji for a 270 HD gyuto with a snakewood handle with Fish many years ago. Later I sold the Fish gyuto, and now I really, really wish I still had that Watanabe suji. But I am only saying that because I have 2 more knives rehandled by Fish.

    I felt that same way about a year ago, and I put up a WTB thread. End story is that a very cool KKF member sold me a great knife with a Fish handle.

    Thanks, K! However, I think one might have found me!

    By the way, your Fish cleaver is a beaut! As boring as it sounds, I'd love a Carter with a Fish handle someday, or that UX10 that Joe C had (maybe still has). That is the exact knife that turned me onto Japanese knives, and specifically Misonos. Ah well!

    For fun, and to keep this thread alive, we should say if a Fish handle is responsible for our love of beautiful knives, or even just tell everyone which is our favourite. For me, see above, though the one that I'm "looking at" keeps me coming back for more. Turns out Fish could alter blades beautifully as well.

    I have all of the Fish handled knives I bought except two. One I bought to help the original owner out, hoping he would get out of the bind he was in but not to be. I did sell it though to someone that really lusted over it and still loves it. The other was the last knife Fish ever re-handled an Wannabe nakiri and even made me a sheath. I traded it to Dave Smith (board smith) for a cleaver block. Oh and the MX10 is still serving my wife well in the kitchen. At any rate I have a bunch still, 3 cleavers, 3 knives. I have a few other custom handled knives but only one is close to Fish's work.
