An angel arrived at my door. What a beauty.

220x60 Halcyon Forge Amboyna Twist patterned welded from 1095 and 15n20 with a compound S-grind. The handle is made of exhibition grade Amboyna Burl and African Blackwood. Fit and finish is superb. The average HRC is 62/63 and weight is 209g.
I can't believe I am so lucky to own such a fabulous knife. One of the treasures in my collection.

What a choil.
Such a handsome blade. And Joe’s S grind is definitely on my list to get. I just really dig the taller bevel in his style. What a stunner

It was a Shig kind of weekend. Both arrived earlier than expected, which is nice during these times.

First up, KU nakiri 165mm. I wanted to upgrade my nakiri (and the rest of my knives in general) and was debating makers. Wanting to try a Shig and finding an orderable one, I'm happy with my purchase after prepping a few meals.

Next, kitaeji gyuto 180mm. I was debating getting a matching KU santoku 165mm despite mixed reviews and was going for it, and happened upon this beauty by sheer dumb luck.

Had a slight snafu with customs, but it still arrived a day early and in time to make Sunday brunch. Super happy with my new purchases.

This replaced our Wusthof Ikon Santoku (now upcycled to my mother who claims it's the sharpest knife ever).

My first Aogami Super knife, flawless fit and finish, and "stick-in-the-board" sharp out of the box. Has been used a fair bit by partner who finds it more comfortable than a larger gyuto. Edge retention excellent so far, and just feels a robust, high quality, well-executed knife.

Congrats - great choice! And joy will abound in the kitchen😊

I was watching that on IG. I wouldn't want to own it, but that doesn't mean I'm not crazy impressed by it 🙃

Jezz is doing some wild stuff ATM, for sure, both for himself and making metals for others.
Agreed completely- his stuff looks stunning
