    Tsunami and mammoth molar Suji.. PICTURE HEAVY

    Hello and thanks for checking out the post! This one just loved the camera and I was able to get some great shots so I loaded a bunch for ya all to look at.

    This 270mm Suji has a beautiful Tsunami pattern damascus blade.. Its sporting Nickle silver bolsters, with some very cool orange and yellow. stabilized mammoth mammoth tooth.. I used stainless pins, both on the bolster and the rear of the handle, and added a single mosaic pin.
    As the bolster ages the stainless pin will be more and more visible.. Which I'm sure will be sweet looking after it gets some love!


    The specs are as follows.

    270mm blade tip to heel.
    45mm tall at heel.
    2.3mm thick tapering to the tip.
    OAL. 15.5" or 394mm
    Weight 9.5 oz.
    Balance point is right at the plunge line. just in front of the bolsters approx 1/4"




    As always, comments and critiques encouraged and welcomed.

    God Bless YA

    The handle is out of this world.

    Thanks guys.. The tooth is some that we processed and stabilized from whole tooth to finished knife. Very rewarding to finally see and use some of this tooth..

    Glad you all seem to like it. Its gona be a love it or hate it thing. And I knew that when I started the handle. I personally LOVE IT.. yet i'm bias.

    I want to shoot out a special thanks to my buddy Clay who has been pivotal in getting these teeth stabilized.

    I love the looks, especially the handle, but the blade might have too much upsweep to the tip for me; it's hard to tell from the pics.
