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 stunnerAn 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.

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.
