    These are great wip pics of some awesome pieces coming out of your shop. Just a question on those damascus ferrules, are they solid and if so does this dramatically effect the feeling of the knife? I saw that you use a dowel method to move the balance point around but does this still leave the blade with a more substantial feel?

    Thanks Mark,
    With the dammy ferrules, They are made from a solid piece, drilled through for the dowel, leaving a few mm for the slot to be shaped, then of course more material is removed on grinding, but they do add weight, but the weight is absorbed in the balance of the knife. The big Suji is balanced around an inch ahead of the choil, where as the smaller 180 petty front of handle. But it would depend on the customer, if someone requested a medium size knife with a blade biased balance with a wide diameter handle as they have big hands damascus would not be advised for the ferrule.

    4 Carbon Blades on the bench, hopefully all but nearly finished by the end of the week.
    Blades now all rough ground ready to start on the handles before finishing/etching etc.
    Robin's feather Gyuto.

    Scot's Feather Suji

    Murray 01 Gyuto

    Clayton, 01, Suji/Honesuki hibred, (sorry for the delay on this one)

    Handle parts getting laid out ready for drilling etc.


    Guys waiting on stainless blades, sorry again for the delay, it has much to do with working in batches. So all the stainless will be done at once blades next week. Many Thanks
    Will

    Thanks Guys, have been a bit slow so far this year I know. seem to have spent allot of time mending things, but i'm getting there, some finished pieces will emerge at last this week. Have also been laminating some bohler n690 between 304L to see how I like it. Sorry for delays, sometimes this is a tricky time of year. Will be flying back into things now.
