Available Knives: 30 June, 2019
It’s a busy couple weeks here in the shop and was a hard push this last week to get these buttoned up. This was the last week for my most recent fine assistant, Eugene, who is headed back to Chicago to set up his own shop. We’ll all miss him here. Keep an eye out for Mr. Schatz—he’s got a lot of talent and a big brain and I know we’ll see him shine soon. We’re also clearing out of our beloved house upstate in Greene County this coming week. We’ve found a wonderful family that’s excited to make it home, and we hope and trust they’ll love it as much as we have. That place was built in 1787, if you can believe it, and I’ve come to understand you’re never really the owner of a place like that, you’re a steward. I hope we left it better than we found it that we and filled it with some loving and lasting memories.
To the knives though—there’s a lot of heart in these, so I hope you dig em. Left to right you’ve got before you:
...a Journeyman 120 in 1095 carbon steel and white-striped blue G10, with white, steel and brass mosaic pins ($350–Sold), a Journeyman 210 in 52100 carbon steel and maple, with white and black G10 liners and steel and copper mosaic pins ($650—Sold), a 5.5” boning knife in 440C stainless and maple, with red and black G10 liners and red and brass mosaic pins ($550–Sold), a Prospect 240 in AEB-L stainless and ironwood, with grey and white G10 liners and white, steel and brass mosaic pins ($750—Sold), a Journeyman 180 in 52100 and maple, with grey and black G10 liners and steel mosaic pins ($550—Sold), a Journeyman 240 in 52100 and maple, with grey and black G10 liners and steel and brass mosaic pins ($750–Sold), a 4” boning knife is 1095 and ironwood, with brass and copper mosaic pins ($400–Sold), a Prospect 210 in AEB-L and ironwood, with blue and white G10 liners and white and steel mosaic pins ($650–Sold), and a Prospect 120 in AEB-L and maple, with yellow and black G10 liners and brass and black mosaic pins ($350—Sold).
All of those beautiful mosaic pins were made by the best in the business; Sally Martin of Provision Forge in Oregon. And these all come with sayas made for each here in the shop. And a couple bonus notes for you: the number attached to each piece is that blade’s length, from tip to heel in mm; and new stuff goes up here Sundays at 5pm.
Hit me with an email if one of these belongs to you, and a very happy and safe Independence Day to you and yours this week!
