Jeff,

This is my first Comet. I had 2 on loaner from a friend to play with. Even though they were from his "older" work, I was quite impressed. This new one though, it's got me giddy AF.

Enso SG2 8" chef knife, & Miyabi Mizu SG2 8" chef knife. I've had the Mizu for a while, but just got the Enso. I enjoy using them both!

I purchased two of the new Bob Kramer Shokunin Limited Edition Nakiris with random Damascus patterns on the blade. They set me back quite a bit, but I am super excited about receiving them in mid-September. Only 6 were made with the Blackwood handle, and 6 with the Cocobolo handle. I purchased the Blackwood because I read that hypoallergenic people (like myself) can have adverse reactions to Cocobolo. My wife is upset that I purchased 1 let alone 2. What do others think of the Shokunin Nakiris? Personally, I think they're beautiful. What can I tell my wife to assuage her concerns...?!
Why'd you buy 2? Weren't you trying to flip the second one for twice as much after you bought it?

Nice one Mark. Its little brother says Hi! I still can't get over how well these Comets perform. They are incredibly good value.

From top:
220x53; 205g Sanmai forged from Treys first inhouse billet and hand forged down to 2mm without power tools. Workhouse spine ~4mm at machi to laser thin at the tip.

210x49; 172g W2 Honyaki gyuto. Nice taper from 3.5mm at the machi to ~1mm 1cm from tip.

170x36; 130g W2 Honyaki petty

Kato standard 240. Mammoth tooth handle by Chef Duy Pham

The additional marking on the blade is called kao I believe, it’s Katos way of designating a blade as perfect.

That is a very nice handle! Does Chef Duy Pham have more like these or is it a custom order?

Custom that's in the works...240mm Gyuto, in San Mai made from 420C cladding & a CTS-204 core. This may very well be the first knife ever made from this steel. It's going to be 1 knife of a 3 part set (I'm only purchasing the Gyuto), & it's going to be on exhibit at Blade before it comes to me. It'll have an amboyna burl handle with copper accents & 1095 damascus ferrule.
