Good to see another sea fisherman on here...
Enjoy your stay here at EM, and I look forward to seeing and hearing more about your edges...
Top marks Ignatius.
Hmmmm, that in a San mai Dam would be dreamy.
Welcome HMK - I look forward to seeing your work here at EM!
Wow - That looks like a very smooth action.
First Shiro I have seen with a hole in the blade too.
This has been brilliant to follow and something that I look forward to seeing in my kitchen.
Yes please .

Hmmm warm Flush...welcome on over.
Why would you not use something like that? It looks like a solid build and Damasteel holds a great edge.
In my limited experience of using customs, I have found that the maker is usually flattered that you have used their design and are happy to work a bit of magic to bring it back up to A 1 condition (if you feel it needs some TLC).
Doesn't mean I will be bringing out my Mokuti and Mammoth ivory custom for a bit of battening though...
Love your Avatar - what we looking at?
Your damascus has a great etch.
Thanks for sharing your work with us.
I dig the asymmetrical spine "nick".
You have to admire the designs coming from the Theirs area, they seem refined and elegant while still retaining a purposeful air to them.
Impressed, and thanks for the review.
Whatever it is, I have to say I like it!
To me, really sharp means being able to cut a human hair, lengthways, into three.
Today I find different sharpnesses suit different purposes. Slicing 100+ mackerel into 2cm 'chops'
May I ask the reason for cutting Mackerel so?
(I lost my little Martinni filleting Knife recently - can you recommend me a replacement please Chris ? It seems you cut a lot of fish...)
Welcome to EM and its good to have you here.
Big fan of Portugal. I Lived in Cascais and Ericiera for a while and fell in love with the country.
Enjoy your stay.
Ate logo amigo!
Welcome and good luck on your mission Root.
New maker to me. Like the look of his work though!
If you aren't getting involved in knife collecting / usage anymore & have found your grail, the rising cost is immaterial !
Not sure why you'd be concerned ?
Maybe if a replacement is required due to loss or unforseen damage?
I know that I have found what I consider toy be go to grail/user and the thought of losing it makes me feel skint!
Unfortunately I have not had chance to use a SPITS, and the only thing about the review that piqued my interest was that the edges were little sharp - but as he said, that would not take long to remedy if you thought it nescessary.
Having seen a couple of the originals by Mr Read, I can say I was certainly impessed with the F&F.
Reveiws schmews. We all love em' but they are best taken with a pinch of salt.
About time Mr Hossballs!
I am sure I won a comp for a mushroom Knife off you back then...Still got it and use it!
Good to see you here at EM and I look forward to reading your thoughts on the Gov consultation...
All the best,
