Guys, these are antiques! Circa 1960. I found a supply, however fairly limited, of forged 1084 forks, that I have 8 more of right now, and can get a few more. They come to me rough, well rough is a nice way to describe them. I have some to sell if there is any interest. I wanted to get all my sources sorted out, before I described these too much, in case things fell through, this would have stayed with me. Now I would like to make some of them available. These will not be made again at the foundary, and have been sitting in a box for more than 50 years!

Can't argue with old 1084 as a suitable fork material.:doublethumbsup:

You're not the only that received an email from Pierre today Ed...

I asked for something simple and elegant (preferably ebony) to match an ebony handled suji that I have on order from Jon. Pierre expressed some concern about my choice of ebony (which he explained has a tendency to want to crack with time), but he used some special wood that he has had drying for 7 years (!), so I should be in good shape. Two black pins (tough to see but they're there) with a single mosaic pin in the center.

It looks exactly like what I had in mind. I can't wait to see it in person and will post again when it arrives.

I think elegant is the perfect term for it. Congrats!

If I did more roasts and large proteins I'd be all over this. They look incredible, Pierre!
