The knife is going to Eamon for a saya and a sharpening, and then to me. I've thought about doing a pass around, if anyone is interested.

A very generous offer!

I'd love to see Mike's work firsthand. Count me in.

I would also be very interested in trying out Mikes knives.

Me too...even though I'm having one made, and I have a couple in transit. But a gyuto, especially this one? Hot damn!

Thanks, Mario. Yes it is, but.....It's not my only great snag, thanks to you and others.....:doublethumbsup:

There are some incredibly talented artists here. And I really do think of y'all as artists.......... Best thing is, ya'll make functional art. I appreciate both the functional and artistic aspects. I think we all do.....if we didn't, we wouldnt have damascus blades, handles of teeth, mokume, silver, exotic woods, burled this and exotic that. Personally, I can't wait to see what you'll come up with next.

Just my opinion.

Mike this is a real nice looking knife. My very first thought when seeing the finished version is a Fish handled Carter funayuki. It's very nice to my eyes. :)

I also would like to add, that i am excited to see what you guys think about the performance of this knife, as it is my 4th gyuto, and i need the feedback. Until i made the Gyuto for Mark, i had only seen them in a picture, and then, only one. I enjoy making kitchen knives, and have every intention of continuing!

I'm not saying I said it first, but I might have once mentioned the reason I got Mike to make me my knives (3 an counting) is because his work reminds me of Carter.
You're bang on, Dave. Fish handled Carter, for sure!

Weird, my 98mm slicer...I mean necker that Mike made hardly has any patina after eight whole hours of having it....





I think I have a problem. I get a necker and still use it in the kitchen.

What's wrong with hanging a steak knife from your neck?

Yeah, it's more of an everything/utility knife for working in the shop/yard/at home. The "actual" necker is even smaller - maybe 2/3rds the size.

I'm assuming the pic you posted, Eamon, is of "The Gyuto"(?) How did it perform???

Yeah, he asked me to review it. I'll give thoughts on it after I sharpen it.

Wow....I didn't recognize this as being the knife Mike made the first time I saw this. That is some patina. I'm liking it. Matt
