Beautiful knives! What length are the blades and what are the woods Del used for the handles/ferrules?
Dang Matt, you have been getting some beauties recently. Great looking knives.
The nakiri handle is particularly understated and stunning.
Sorry it cut the pic off.....not sure why....
The Nakiri is 185, the Gyuto is 210
The gyuto has ironwood and maple Burl.
The Nakiri is ironwood and something really dark....Maybe ebony.... Del picked it out.
Both knives are light and nimble..... The etch is very deep; easily palpable.
Haven't used them much, but I really like the profile of the gyuto.
I sharpened them up through the Kitayama ..... It left a nice shiny edge to contrast with the dark Damascus.
Now is not the time to bother me. And it's always now. Wiley Miller
