Anyone got some special orders they wanna share?
Or any plans on some cool knives this year?

I think its to long between the cool buys here, so just wonder if anybody got some interesting purchases in 2012 :)

I have 3 knives ordered from Marko. A 180mm Gyuto, a 150mm Petty (both in 52100) and a (wait for it) 270mm Suji in ladder damascus with a pimped handle (possibly a little mokume):bliss: That's why I said "I should be jealous, but..." on your tease thread:D

Actually, this one is in high contrast carbon, so it will really show off. It will primarily be a slicer (I'm pairing it with one of Pierre's forks), so bling is definitely desirable.

To what I'm waiting for this year:

Dave Gyuto - which is close to being finished
Del Nakiri
Pierre Pettysuki

All in O1

Pierre Fork

Really excited for them all.

What else I hope for this year:

Rehandle my carter
Get onto Marko's list
Get a DT
Get a boardsmith

Sounds like a fun year!

Nice knives though :)

I have one from Pierre Damascus Gyuto in like a bubble wrap pattern with redwood handle and copper trim, which. I'm so excited for! And a Gyuto from Marko which I'm equally excited for, haven't chosen the handle material yet. And a damascus petty from Del with a buckeye handle.

Then I'm looking at one or two others for myself, lot of ways this could go DT, Dave, another Pierre, another Marko, another Del, J knife rehandled by Dave?

Need a wa handle for my Nakiri, and have one on order from Stefan for a suji that hopefully comes this year.

Then maybe a his and hers set for my best friends wedding. Though I don't know if the gift seems too self serving?

Got one on the way from a KKF maker, another in the next few months, and just got on a list for what will likely be a 2013 delivery :cool2:

And I'm always on the lookout for other kitchen tools that Del might crank out!

Let's just say I have alot of trades going on and potential trades. I'm not exactly sure about all the details, I left alot up to the makers. I don't know what most of the stuff is, but I know it will be awesome.

not selling, some of the makers here are doing special projects for me. i myself sorta have a no buying policy, but not a no trading policy. that's the key.

Don't need anything, but I will likely get a yanagi this year.

either the Blue#1 Gesshin Hide or a Mizuo/Masamoto in white#2

Have a couple stones on the way from Jon at the moment.
A serving fork and gravy ladle in the works from Del.
And Dave will start making a custom board for me on Monday from Black Cherry :bliss:
I'm sure a couple more things will pop up during the year though. Also planning on buying a house sometime this year, so I need to be tighter with my money (not off to a great start)

I'm hoping for a 260mm Carter funayuki (custom order) and a Marko practice knife. A Boardsmith is also on the list.

330mm konosuke extra tall kensaki yanagi was supposed to be delivered today.
Alas...snow storm hit the area and the fedex says "delivery exception".
It's one of the two knives that I am going to get this year (no more). :D

Sadly, things have taken a turn for the worse this past week. Much to the chagrin of my wife, apparantly there will be two more packages heading my way later this week. And no, they will not be in the price range of the 210 Hiromoto AS 'second' that got me started barely two years ago :O
