I would add that he is also a highly accomplished all round knifemaker recently heavily featured in the knife magazine La Passion Des Couteaux here in France

I love the rustic look of it Ben, I think I would be more comfortable having my first go at a straight shave with something of this size

Are you sure???? I don't know to have been in LPDC that year . Do you have the number and the article please???

(i was 7-8 time in the magazine, but i don't know for a recent place in the LPDC page in 2014

Thank you for the kind word . 6/8 is perfect to begin, and near wedge for me is better to start with instead of deep hollow grind
