    Great looking. Congratulations.

    I wouldn't dare speculate that now you might feel you have enough Billipps.

    Here's a couple choil shots. Hard to catch with the cell phone.

    Yeah, it and the nakiri just love falling through foods. Very happy with these
  10. I'm getting convinced that I NEED an S-grind knife in my life....

    You should do it. It seems to be more difficult to score an Oatley, but if you can, jump on it. Dalman makes a decent one, but in my experience Jame's work is just leaps and bounds better. Especially with this drastic style of S grind.
  12. The wait is not an issue, if I'm going to order my first ever non-Japanese knife, I'd want it to be as good as it can be (accounting for budgetary constraints of course).

    Do you think this is the one to pop my custom-knife-cherry on?

    That's a hard call. If you're looking for this exaggerated S- grind, I'd say Oately. I see other makers using an S-grind as well, or some variation of, and it all confuses me honestly. I'm not 100% sure what constitutes an S-grind these days. Is it using fullering(?), or something else?
    I will say this, James Oately is definitely one to consider.
  14. Thank you.
    I guess as far as a user is concerned, it's a fantastic problem to have: who do I choose to start with from all these great blacksmiths
