    ADVERTISEMENT
    Here are a pair I just finished up. Wanted to share some images and the specs. The Siji is my first Left hand ground knife ever!! Both knives were sharpened entirely on stones.. Something I have found to be better and giving me a much nicer OOTB edge!

    OAL, 446mm
    Blade, 300mm.. heel to tip 1080 and 15n20 Feather pattern.
    Heel, 45mm high
    Spine, 2.2mm heel, tapering to 1mm a inch behind the tip
    Grind, Left hand convex ground.
    Handle, 130mm long 25.2mm front height, 26.7mm back height. 18mm wide front 19.5mm wide back.
    Materials, Stabilized curly redwood and Hippo tooth. mosaic pins.

    Paring:
    OAL, 206mm
    Blade 10mm heel to tip, 1080/15n20 feather damascus
    Heel 29mm high
    Spine, 1.8mm above heel tapering to .81mm a inch behind the tip.
    Grind, 50/50 full flat blended convex edge.
    Handle, 95mm long
    Materials, Stabilized curlu redwood and hippo tooth, mosaic pins.

    Thanks for looking, as always. Comments and or critiques welcomed.

    God Bless

    Beautiful work, the attention to details in the handles is impressive. You take great pride in your work!

    I was curious about the length of the suji so went and researched. Looks like a heck of a slicer.

    Those are absolutely gorgeous. Being left hand ground makes them danged near perfect.
    Rest in peace Bill. Yol Bolsun! May there be a road and may you find peace along it.

    They are stunning. I would be a bit afraid to use something so pretty. I am sure they slice lovely though.

    They are gorgeous! if I were a top chef that warranted the salary to be able to have knives like these I'd definitely order some up. I love the handle on the paring knife especially, but the first blade is just impressive.

    Would you explain to a novice what the left hand grind is and what it does? I seem to remember a sushi chef telling me one time about the grinds and how it affected a sushi knife, but can't remember offhand.

    Thanks much for the comments on these. I was able to speak to the owner of these knives last week. and hes very pleased with them, and the petty/paring knife was a gift for his wife. and she loves it and wont even let him use it! lol Making Knife Knuts one blade at a time.
