How do you find the edge retention and sharpening on this knife? I believe it is O1 steel?
It is Blue (#2?) core in 1.2842 clad. Edge retention is decent, sharpening as expected with Blue steel, no surprise on this end…

I know that neither the maker nor the shape of the whole knife is on anyone‘s radar, but this shape was love at first sight for me. So I contacted Michael and we started discussing a custom. I went to his shop, we discussed final details, I chose the wood (which was probably the most difficult thing to do for me as there were probably 50 pairs of walnut scales in a drawer) and a few weeks later I went to his shop again to pick up my new knife. I love it and it is a keeper!

Canada, eh?
Wow, they look very similar, especially the ones with patina.
Given that the FM and MM lines are finished by the same sharpener (Myojin), I think that is not that surprising.

Uwe makes very nice knives out of all sorts of interesting steels. I hope to try one, one of these days, I hear performance is excellent too.
He’s the nutty professor in the most positive sense for me!

My Tanaka trilogy: FM, Tsubaya, Yohei

Never really planned on the FM - I thought I was Tanaka sated - but someone (a star on BST!) was actually willing to send to the UK without grumbling, so forgive me the excess as I scratch a long-held itch

I’m generally loathed to credit these things, but the FM Is uncommonly beautiful. It’s the first knife that I’ve hesitated to use as a result.

Now I’ve added some better photos to the hasty pumpkin number it’ll be put into good use next week…
