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
I have a few cool things planned for 2012. Going to do some traditional stuff. It is still in the finalizing stages, but will post teaser pics when the time comes
New drill press
New HT oven
More J knives
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?
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.
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)
Got my Martell Suji ths month!
A project with Marko in its infancy.
A 'secret' project. razz: Oivind :tease
Other than that, maybe pick up something interesting if I get can get up to the mainland this year.
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).
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
