    Serenity knives?

    Anybody heard of this guy? I saw one of his knives in a photo in this month's Bon Appetit Magazine and they look very interesting.

    I especially like his utility and steak knives.

    His kitchen knives look a little unconventional though, would love to know what you guys think about them.

    I'm not being rude, but they seem kind of crudely done, don't they?

    Yeah, really crude-looking grinds and porky profiles.

    My first thought was crude as well, in most ways that I can tell from a picture. The "Japanese steak knife" looks unusable. I sense some Carter influence, shiroichi/ stainless cladding, rough grind marks; but these look...wrong.

    He lists Carter as a mentor, and also states he's only been doing it since 2010. I agree that as of right now they're a little ugh... "rough around the edges," but I'd definitely check back now and then to see his progress.

    yep, I used to see him selling stuff on etsy when he first started. He has potential just needs a little more time to refine his stuff.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
