I've been off-line for a while due to business with a new job. Glad to be back!

I took part in a knifemaking contest a while back ponsored by a video game maker (Gabe Newell). Blade Magazine (August Issue) published the article with most of the entries. I got a neat half-page color shot of mine. Big Grin Big Grin

3000 layer blade, fossil ivory, wrought iron and walnut for the handle in a Japanese influenced style. Cutting board is a solid hunk of cocbolo with cherry and mesquite edging.

Very cool. Though I have to ask how many inquiries you've had for toast cutters. Big Grin

I don't envision a new line of toast cutters...but I've been getting increasing inquiries on Japanese style blades. I'm sure this is partly due to several of the posts made way back when I was doing the original billet work for this one.

Several of the guys involved hang out at Don Fogg's site, so it's possible a write up was done there. We all submitted a short description of our project to Buddy who did the article for Blade.

Bill's "pizza cutter" was my favorite. The pattern on the wheel is pretty remarkable. I know I haven't been able to get one to come out that uniform yet!

Now, if I could just get te time to finish out all the Japanese and Migration era blades I have laying around, maybe I could get something a little more mainstream published! Big Grin
