So this is a Dojo 6" petit gyuto with a hidden tang cocobolo handle.
Matching saya is being glued up as I type....

The handle looks a little bit Don Nguyen inspired. Looks good Chris, those Dojos are good little knives.
What color is the spacer? It looks almost pink in the pics.

Very nice. Definitely shades of Don Nguyen in there.

I think Chris actually went into Don's brain and implanted the idea long before either made a knife handle. The fact that he's making them after Don is all a cover. You know...like Inception.

I'm not usually a fan of cocobolo but man, you got this one dead on. The grain looks really nice. Congrats.

I'd say it's a fine looking D handle for a Western gyuto, great work Chris.

I might have to steel some of your ideas. :)

I hope this isn't a dream I'm living in right now...

Chris that looks awesome. Fit and finish looks great.

It's pretty thin. The grind is relatively flat. The stainless cladding is pretty crappy looking, but the AS edge is awesome. It makes a nice lightweight small board or line knife. For the money, the larger Dojos are a terrific value.
