So there are 2 custom knives in Paris right now, and I went to both. Yesterday I went ro the SICAC, which is clearly not what it used to be. Today I went to the FICX, where a number of fancy makers were displaying. I bought 2 knives, both by Jen Anso, a maker I’ve been looking at for a while. The knives are a semi custom chef’s knife in bog oak, and a custom slipjoint (Casino) in bronze.

The chef’s knife is very nice. Many custom makers make chef’s knives with a Jpz-ish twist, which ends up reducing the curvature of the edge, which is silly IMHO, because I find the curve itself super useful. Also, this knife has a fairly small handle, which works best for my medium sized hands.

The sheath & handle on this specific piece is 2,000 year old bog oak.
