Yep thanks for reminding me! Both great stones BTW
Thanks guys. Initially I was going to choose the best handle, mount it and sell the knife, but I'm slacking. It's still sitting in my workshop waiting
This is something I really respect and I also feel that is a common thread among other custom knife makers that I really value. Marko has a similar character
The bottom one is a kitayama 8K stone. Have the same one.
from the box looks like the synth aoto (big muddy blue gray stone) and a kitayama, could be mistaken though.
