    something beautiful

    I have been talking to a maker in Estonia for a little while now and we are working on a project for a custom 210mm gyuto, It will be a little while before we get it all figured out. Right now he is getting ready to put into production a 180mm version, it is made of Niolox. I figured I'd give you guys a little teaser, as this probably won't get done til the beginning of the year. It's going to be pretty. These are single bevels at 2.4mm spine thickness. I can't wait, so many projects, so little time.lol

    That has to be one of the most interesting 'd?' handles I have ever seen. Have you used one chef?

    How about the grinding? In the second picture, is one the right hand version and the other the left hand one, or is the grinding symmetric??

    one is left and one is right, he doesn't make a double bevel version.

    No, I haven't used one yet, but I have used similar shaped handles before and they are quite comfortable. If you look at the first picture with the apple that is actually a left handed knife and the belly of the curve actually faces the palm which feels right in the hand, but doesn't make sense visually. I used to make my antler handled knives that way.

    Thank you Son, I'm reassured...in fact, my question was stupid: the third pic makes it obvious.

    Man that thing is aesthetically beautiful. I hope the handle is nice to use as well. It's always nice to see things a little different.
