It is finally here… I am truly psyched and so elated about this for many reasons that you can all appreciate. The most important reason is that he is recovering well enough to complete this amazing custom for me.

317 gm Bloomery Steel

full specs will be coming later - full tang western integral - here are the pics:

NOW … that’s a knife that one could LOVE!
thanks - jannis made the bloomery steel by himself from iron ore he collected himself from the Baltic region - low in sulphur for higher purity. Then he used historic methods to smelt and bellows - will provide specs and details in a later posting when the knife arrives

but so happy to see Jannis create magic again

IMO he's one of the greatest knife makers of all time. Love to see a collab with kamon!

Absolutely thrilled and relieved to see he's recovering well and able to be back in the shop.

I hope he is able to make a full recovery. Nothing quite hits like his work.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. As many have said, he is at a different level in terms of craftsmanship. I am glad he is doing what he loves to do and is recovering

how do you like yours so far? The profile and dimensions look almost identical to mine. What are the specs?

I can’t wait to receive mine - will post specs when I do
