    I just want to say that refreshing this PA thread has been the highlight of my week, and given me more FOMO than staying home for coronavirus. Thanks for organizing @tgfencer

    Raquin knives

    Thanks for sharing. It means a lot more when someone from within the trade praises a piece of work as GOOD. Do you mind sharing a little about the grind? What exactly is special about the way Raquin does the forge shaping. FWIW, this thread has been entertaining. I am a knife noob compared to...

    Have been a lurker for years and finally decided to create an account. My knife roll consists of a mixture of vintage sabatier and Japanese knives. Look forward to sharing photos very soon!
