    Fogg/Kelso Hunter

    A gorgeous knife and an incredibly meaningful tribute to Don (and to you!). Beautifully done.

    210mm Gyuto (wrought iron damascus clad)

    Holy crap that is gorgeous. The steel is amazing.

    A pair of kitchen blades(pic heavy)

    Well done Joël, really well done. You have a great aesthetic sense and it shows in all of your work.

    Thoughts on sources

    Steel is cheap(and I mean that literally). Your time is not.

    Typically they were filed in. Why would you think that it would be thicker at the end of the nakago? The shape of the blade extends the length of the nakago, so the shinogi extends all the way to the end. Plus, there is some distal taper in the nakago, which would lead to the nakago being thinner at the end.

    Hunter and a Chopper

    Great work Mr Richard; I love that hunter, but then again, that goes without saying. I always love how your knives do not have ricassos, and are better looking for it.

    Roðinn Hrafn - the Red Raven

    Beautiful handle sculpting... just an all around attractive knife.

    My latest Tommi puukko sheath

    I am digging that Bison leather! I love the texture. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get it from?

    couple of Q's on resin scales

    They are resin. Not sure what honeycomb is. They are brittle. I have seen them fall apart or break from enough people to know I don't want to use them(plus they aren't my style). You can find them on Etsy, and USA Knifemaker has some white ones under Resin handles.

    Knife makers vise (wip)

    You knife vice looks almost identical to mine (which a friend made for me). You have two set screws for your inside tube, which I do not. I have one that is fixed in place, which I find to be better since that means that both sides won't shift when I release one set screw.
