Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. The handle on the first gyuto is stunning. What kind of wood?

The third pic is of the first gyuto, that handle is blackline spalted maple with an amboynia bolster.
The first pic is of my first sujihiki and the handle on that one is of red palm with an amboynia bolster.
The last one is maple burl with amboynia bloster.
More to come.

Ryan,
Yes, I do, I am one of the few people who can make it.
I have made quite alot of it in the past, but not lately.
I hve several meteorites here that I traded for a couple of years ago.

That damascus is ... well, I've run out of adjectives. Stunning, beautiful, way cool, sick...

Anyway, I really like it.

Warren,
I hope that none of these will be, however as soon as I get home I will be working on more for the ECG. I have 2 more in progress and 2 bars of damascus and I still have more of all the handle materials I have used so far, and I may pick up some more this weekend.

Damn. I've admired your knives since your first post over at the old forum. They look super functional and awesome. That sujihiki looks just like my favorite size/shape. Almost more of a short gyuto. Awesome stuff!!
