I thought I would post a few pictures of some of my recent work, I don't always get pictures of everything I make, but here are some. Some will be familiar to you guys...

I just love your work, Pierre. Especially the top one gyuto, the scimitar like boning knife with the grey handle and the fillet knife looks spectacular, but I find it absolutely impossible to pick a favourite amongst these beauties. Congrats to all the new owners of these wonderful pieces of art. I just can't wait to see what you are up to next. :)

Beautiful work, Pierre. What wood is this sujihiki handle?

Pierre,

Great looking knives. That one knife looks very familiar. I was using it this week in my kitchen and I must say, I love the thing.

Rick,

The 240 suji with the 3 silver spacers was a custom I ordered from Pierre. I requested that it be a little taller then a normal suji and figured it would make a great line knife. Now I have it and love it. The edge retention is great, it takes a great edge, and there is enough knuckle clearance to use it for all kinds of tasks. My only minor regret is getting a 240 (don't get me wrong, I love the knife) but I mainly use 270's.

Beautiful knife, Chuck. I've asked Pierre to make me a sujihiki, and I'm trying to get some ideas for handles. That mosaic pin in the butt looks to be a nice touch.

Yeah, that's a great looking knife. I'm dying to get a suji to go with the gyuto he did for me, doesn't feel right just having the one!

Ok, a pair of pairing knives paired...

First, a 4 1/2" sheepsfoot blade of CPM 154, 416 stainless bolsters
Stabilized maple burl scales with mosaic pins
black and white vulcanized fiber spacers
and just to be a pita to myself, I mortised them.



Second, a 4" blade, traditionaly shaped
same construction as above, but with Honduran Rosewood.


And the pair of parers paired...



Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy them!!

Beautiful, both of them. I love Hond. rosewood, and the shape is more what I am used to, so this would be my personal preference, but the redwood one is also excellent.

Glad you like 'em!! The liners are a chore, but worth it. It's tedious when they are so small, not quite the same as a 300 suji!

The origional 3 blades are ground, and HTed. So, hard to change now. But if you want to change PT me and we can talk.

This one is reminiscent of the Sabitier chef knife, the bolster is tucked closer to the handle, so no issues with stones.

Specs:

50mm high at the heel

250mm cutting edge

2.5mm spine at the bolster

1.5mm mid spine

.8mm 1 inch from the tip, give or take of course... :laugh:

CPM 154 @ hrc 62, very slightly convex ground hand rubbed finish

Nickel/silver bolsters

3/16" hidden pins, and a simple center mosaic

Scales are cocobolo

Hope you like it!!

Pierre

Ut-oh, there is an irregularity in the line just below the bolster!

I think that must be one of the most perfect westerns i've ever seen. The profile, the mokume bolster, the ironwood, simply stunning. Everything about it seems just perfect.

I think i need to start saving my pennies.
