Next is a damascus Gyuto, blade is a lazy ladder pattern, consisting of 1084, and 15N20 @ HRC 61

Full distal taper, rounded choil, and chamfered spine. 250 mm on the edge.

African Blackwood ferrule, maple burl handle, with black G10, and faux ivory spacer.

Saya is a 2 piece, faceted build from some of Marks awesome figured maple. This one doesn't have a pin. It is leather lined to protect the blade finish, and is a nice friction fit.

the profile of your petty-suki and your mokume bolsters are awesome, some amazing stuff. I like the idea of leather in the saya to protect the finish
