Just wrapped these up last night...
First on is a 220 mm Petty-suki, going to live with a forum member.
S35VN @ HRC 62, machine finish, rounded spine and choil. Full distal taper.
Mokume bolsters, mosaic pins, and Arizona Desert Ironwood scales.
Sheath/leather saya, is full grain western plains buffalo hide, this is the thin stuff. Its only 1/4" thick!!
Next is a damascus Gyuto, blade is a lazy ladder pattern, consisting of 1084, and 15N20 @ HRC 61
Full distal taper, rounded choil, and chamfered spine. 250 mm on the edge.
African Blackwood ferrule, maple burl handle, with black G10, and faux ivory spacer.
Saya is a 2 piece, faceted build from some of Marks awesome figured maple. This one doesn't have a pin. It is leather lined to protect the blade finish, and is a nice friction fit.
Comments welcome. Thanks for looking!!
