Thread: Kramer "Lucky Peach" knife

  1. #11
    IIRC, Matt asked for his knife to be based on a Shigefusa. I think it may have more of a curve up from the belly to the tip but the way the photo was taken, it looks like there's a really long flat spot along the edge.

    I wonder if Matt was consulted on this when Kramer made this one.

    I have Shigefusa on hand and though this profile resembles it, it is not a copy. Shigefusa's flat spot is shorter and spine doesn't drop toward the tip as much as on BK.

    I was thinking the same thing. Finally a profile I would use...

    from that pic, it looks more like the Masamoto KS i owned (except even flatter) than the Shig i have. a pic can be very deceiving through.

    I designed the knife. Told Bob what I wanted and he made it. He made one. Sent it to me but thought he noticed an imperfection in the photo he took. So he called back the delivery and made another. He brought the new one to me. When he saw the one he had called back there was actually nothing wrong, that was the one that was auctioned off.

    It is modeled after a shigefusa. But the grind is better. It has a long flat spot but a gradual progression that really can not be seen in a photo. It is tailored to how I cut and like a knife to be i.e. a custom knife.

    Nice! Yours seems to be a bit taller/a bit more belly than the one they auctioned off.Hard to tell just from the photos.
    Both beautiful knives indeed.

    Okay, here is where the cutout has sat for a few months:



    I took it out today, because when I cut it out, I cut it with an old razor, and it wasnt exactly even on the left side:



    Before posting here, my plan was to take it to Kinkos this afternoon and even out the left side. However I met a former coworker for happy hour and we got drunk. So that's pushed back until tomorrow. So I will post the finished product when it's done. FYI the other pic's centered here are pieces I took out of a random graffiti book purchased at Borders.

    Funny thing about this issue of The Lucky Peach. As it was discussed in another thread, this issue weighs the ups and downs of going to Culinary School. I actually took it in to show to my lead instructor and he made copies and shared it with the whole department.
