Got my first @Isasmedjan . 255 suji, I love the handle on this thing.
Congrats! Looks great. I love my Isasmedjan gyuto.
His knives are really Good, should buy while its not super expansive.
New mazaki profile gyuto 240mm
Old petite profile 180mm
Here's a couple of the ones I got recently:
Nice knives. What do you think of birch bark handle on the TX? Looks like it would feel very good in the hand.
Great look, great feel. Not as textured as one may think, but there is a slight texture contrast. Steffen's work is quite impressive really.
Here's the giveaway he did, and I was fortunate enough to win. Super impressive with all the right numbers for me.
Ohhh, you're back!
This Evan Antzenberger came in today. It really surpassed expectations. 266 long, 55 tall with a beautiful fit and finish and that Hamon!
I missed you, the haburn kurosaki hybrid is living it's best life fyi, no idea what he who shall not be named is doing with the Suki, your most recent purchases look amazing
Loved that gyuto! Miss it.
Have no clue where the suji is the days though. Those were quite the duo for sure
That is a nice knife from Steffen!
That is a Lovely hamon!
Is that a D shaped handle? Great looking and great specs!
As a k-tip fan I simply had to buy one of these:
180mm Hinoura Ajikataya Hakata
Got a very long anticipated blade today! 9.5” chef’s, forged by Haley DesRosiers. Now, what makes this really special, is that before finishing the knife, she found out that she was pregnant, and wouldn’t be able to work in the shop and finish it due to the fumes. So, her husband Adam, also a M.S., finished it for her. Her stamp is on the left side with his on the right, making it a super rare knife that was built by TWO masters! She included a very cool handwritten note telling the story of the blade and circumstances, such a cool touch. Pics with my first knife from here (7.5”) and you can def tell the difference in how each finishes their handles (Haley much thinner and lighter while Adams is longer, thicker and more shaped).
Truly a one of a kind, congratulations
Hos do you like their handle styrkes compared?
Now THAT is awesome. I've been wanting to try their work for some time now.
Such a special piece indeed
Couple more recent ones:
270 Fujiyama circa 2011
And this killer blade from Joe-
That is a very nice looking Halcyon.
That Fujiyama is killer!
What are the blade dimensions on the Halcyon? Was that the 'special' German steel?
Very cool story and knife! I wonder if it would be right to describe it as a DesRosierss or a DesRosierses, whatever the plural should be of DesRosiers? Both are awesome bladesmiths.
Michael's picks, but what a looker! Coming my way next week
What a beauty! Is that a chef's or a slicer?
I want a knife from Joe in that steel...
Think that was a one off
