    Hello friends.

    My name is Peter. Im chef and geek from Slovakia. I love science, nature, knives(I mostly had Watanabes) and gadgets. I cook already 12 yrs and Im an co-owner of a successful operation in Bratislava. My Hero chef Is Fergus Henderson from Saint John Hotel in London.

    Below is my recent knife from Pavel Bolf (BORUFU) czech Katanakaji. Its called Thousand Faces (me and my chefs were always giving fairytales names to our knives). Its custom Kiritsuke Gyuto from 19191 tool steel (like those W1&2s or Hitachi Shirogami), simple and nice steel and quenched in Ichimonji style without clay into the water. Im single knife chef and pettie style. So its thicker gyuto (4,5mm at heel) it can serve as deba at heel but still thin enough not to veg. Heavier, but resourceful.
    Its 220mm long.

    My (gadgets) stones are:
    2x 220 naniwa for fixes and evening others and itsself
    AI1000
    Ikarashi
    Kouzaki Aoto
    Mauroyama Shirosuita
    Ohira Uchigumori
    And little nagura helper

    Hello Peter, welcome to the forums! I see you are coming properly equipped. You came to the right place. The knives from Pavel make often a sword-like impression, I have made a handle for one XXL gyuto blade he made. His forging is fantastic though.

    A som rad ze tu mame dalsieho Slovaka :)
