This has to be the best looking Nakiri I have ever seen.
And I get to keep this one. Since my birthday is at the end of the month, I am calling this an early Birthday Present.
Butch went way above and beyond anything I could have hoped for.
I don't have this in hand yet. Butch just sent me the photos today and the Nakiri will arrive in a couple days.
I am really excited about this one.
......and I get to keep it.

I sent Butch a piece of stabilized Koa and Bog Oak. As an afterthought I told him that I liked the look he gets with hammered copper like he has done on some of his knives in the past.
This is what he came up with.

I really like the way copper and Koa look together.
Butch has been using a lot of my wood since the very beginning.
He even makes the mediocre wood look great.
Not bad at making knives either.
Just teasing, I have loved just about everything I have seen of his.

Thank You Butch!
You made my day.

Butch's workmanship and fit up on his handles are second to none. Looks great!

That's a stunner! I can't get over home masculine and beautiful that knife is at the same time. My girlfriend saw it and said "that's a man's knife". You're a lucky guy Mark!

Very well done. I particularly the looks of Butch's nakiris and this one blows away the pics of ones I've seen that preceded it.

Wow. I have all this wood, and now I think, "What's the point?"
Maybe it's just that my wood is mediocre . . .

I'm a sucker for copper, and that thing is stunning. The slit where the machi enters the handle is so clean...love it!

Well, that's just great! I was perfectly happy with my Harner nakiri until now, thank you very much. :razz:

Absolutely gorgeous, but the real fun will begin when you start cutting stuff with it. :thumbsup: Congratulations!
