    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!

    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.

    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.

    Thanks much. I love making knives and really do take great price in every piece the come out of my shop!! The Suji has a 12" blade actual cutting edge. It is one heck of a slicer.
    It was chosen as editors choice on knivesdotcom this month. :) I would drop a link but dont want to break any forum rules.. Feel free to check it out though! :)

    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.
