The Davie Jones’ shooker, copper S edition. I love oysters. Something deeply medieval about them, the taste of the sea and everything I about the seaside is a good thing! Even when it’s testing this shucker in the workshop, feels like I’m doing something right. Also, helps these were some of the best oysters I’ve had from @theeasyfishco super plump little suckers.
80CrV2 blade, copper S guard, antique oak ‘pope hat’ handle.
Chopping boards from @amonitnow (midd bros) look out for a colab coming soon!

The deluxe-plus, high carbon & copper Cu-mai. 5 layers 26c3 and copper. Second knife for @colorarti and an ‘open brief’!! Wanted to do a slender understated slicer in black and gold, had to be coffee etched spicy white, pared with a stabilised ebony octagonal wa handle. The copper go-mai was an experiment that worked a treat! 🎰

Repurposed antique Sheffield file chef knife, Custom 7.5” slicer for @beverleykendall17
Hand forged from a massive 10mm deep blunt ‘M’ file. Was careful not to loose too much of the original file texture and character. Somehow managed to keep some teeth on the spine by forging as close to finish as possible.
Handle is English black walnut from @taylorforgedknives beautiful piece absolutely full of figure! So nice I couldn’t help but do another coat of oil and two more beeswax after I took these photos.
Ferrule is brass and red and black VF.

Another glorious day in the wood this time next to a superb view from afar! Found a hive preparing to swarm so did a split, spotted a new queen and one of my two year old queen bees too she has a blue spot on her back. Some beekeepers clip the wings of the queen but i am against doing this to the bees i keep. Was most enjoyable testing and using my new customized hive tool from BOLI KNIFE class, precise, well thought out, unique design and quality workmanship 🐝💚👌hopefully to be used for many more years thanks again G.
